“Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side,” the post said. “Daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends have been with him throughout the last 24 hours.”

Meat Loaf dead, singer of ‘Bat Out of Hell’ was 74 (nypost.com)

This one hits hard. Bat out of Hell has been one of my 5 top albums which is in constant rotation in my music sources. And at least a couple of songs do have romantic and sentimental attachments going back over 4 decades.

Thank you for the music and the beautiful memories

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. One good album. But what an album! And let us not forget Rocky Horror.

    So many treasured memories entwined with this artist’s work.

  2. I don’t always listen to Meatloaf, but when I do my neighbors do too.

    Lots of memories that come back to his music and one I’ll cherish always was making my father laugh so hard he couldn’t breath. Paradise by the Dashboard Lights came on and for some reason it clicked and I said out loud, “wait….this song is about sex! I wonder if any of his other songs are about that?” a moment of silence wondering how I could be so naïve at this age before he was bent over belly laughing.

  3. Can’t add much other than his real name was Michael Lee Aday. Some sources say it was Marvin. I was amazed at his vocal output. How the hell do you get oxygen to your brain while belting out Dashboard light?

    1. He used to pass out after a concert. So often that no one got concerned about it at all. Band and crew would just walk around him.

      Seriously, he left everything he had energy wise on the stage.

      The music world lost a great one today.

    2. He was born Marvin Lee Aday, and legally changed it to Michael as an adult.

      He used to pass out regularly after shows. One of the band members would put an oxygen mask on him, and everyone would just step over him until he recovered.
