Bat Out Of Hell, great album.
Listening to that today made me start listening to Ellen Foley's first album. What a voice! I could see her singing Gimme Shelter live with Mick. (she even covers Stupid Girl on this album). But I digress.

RIP Meat Loaf

Sad news...

Wasn't a fan of Meatloaf's bombastic solo material, but I recall some of the Ted Nugent tunes he sang lead on for the Free For All album before he made it big on his own.

RIP Meatloaf.

What a shame.

I remember when the “I’d Do Anything For Love” video came out. It was maybe a little too mature for me to be watching at the time, but I adored the song and loved the Beauty and The Beast like theme of the video. RIP to a great talent.

Not that many music artists get a programme the same day as announcement of their passing, but BBC TV have tonight had one hour tribute programme.

Last time it happened was on the passing of our own Charlie Watts.

The article says he was anti-mandate. It doesn't say anti-vaccine. There is a difference.

Fair point, and I stand corrected.
He was publicly anti-mandate as you say.

Not interested in dragging him- at all- but his actions whether he was personally anti-vaccine, anti-mandate, or both, ended up killing him it appears.
Damn shame.


‘If I Die, I Die’: Meat Loaf Spurned COVID Rules Before Death
The singer said in a recent interview that he was getting tired of pandemic restrictions, complaining about “power-mad” flight attendants who make people wear masks.

“I hug people in the middle of COVID,” and said: “I understood stopping life for a little while, but they cannot continue to stop life because of politics. And right now they’re stopping because of politics.”

He died of Covid, anti-mask, anti-vax (Clapton is anti-vax but vaxxed) anti-mandate/shutdown, supported Clapton and Van. I just can't call him a victim.

A victim of his own ignorance on the subject. And I disagree, these people that die of COVID that are unmasked/vaxxed are ignorant and are victims. I think the problem I have is that rather than just disagree, they tend to shout from rooftops and act all pissy and victimized.

I disagree with the behaviour and that makes me not like them. But they are victims, as if they weren't ignorant, they would behave differently.

I truly am sorry he is dead before his time. 74 is not very old and he was super talented. That being said, I believe in essence, you are calling him stupid and unfortunately. I have to agree. Actually, I'd call it more indoctrinated than stupid. Last night on the news, I saw a very disturbing piece about the young mother of a 4 and 6 year old who had her cancer surgery put off because there wasn't an available bed for her due to the mostly unvaccinated covid patients taking up those beds. If it was up to me, and a person was unvaccinated and taking up a hospital bed that was needed for one who is ill due to no fault of their own, I would send that covid patient home with his family and make that hospital bed available for someone who had no choice in their plight.

THE AGE --- 23 January 2022

Have to admit I wasn't following his career too closely and when he came to town a few years ago, (2018 maybe?) I went to see him. A great spectacle, cracker band and backup vocalist but Meat and especially the voice was a shadow of itself.

You go to hear the voice, so from that perspective it was a bad show. Still, can't diminish his accomplishment in the industry and in that subgenre of pop.

My good friend was able to reroute Meat Loaf's Bat 2 World Tour into New Zealand as they had missed a shipping window, she was rewarded with 4 Tickets to the show... Needless to say the group that went had a ball

“Stoney” AKA Shaun Murphy later became a recording member of Eric Clapton’s 1985 album, Behind The Sun. She joined his subsequent world tour as a backing singer, including the appearance for Live Aid.

Murphy also became a full-time member of Little Feet (1993-2009).

I had no idea he died, let alone three days ago. Wasn't even on YouTube, and there
are still posts about Ronnie Spector dying there. I would think Meatloaf was just as famous as Ronnie.

Sad if he let himself of Covid. Will never understand the unvaccinated. I guess they have a death wish.

There were only two ways out of my town become a Rugby Player or a Rock n' Roller, if you chose the latter then you had to Love Meat Loaf.

Bat out of Hell is one of the few perfect albums, and it's one i'd take to the desert island

I’m surprised that no one had talked about Jim Steinman who wrote the Bat Out Of Hell trilogy. He also passed away last year.

Amazing numbers.. good for him.

Meat Loaf’s Streams Jump by 4,650% Following Death; Sales See an Even Bigger Bump

According to MRC Data, on Jan. 21, the day most of the public learned of Meat Loaf’s death the day before, his on-demand streaming rose 4,650% from the baseline established since the beginning of the year. But many fans really, really wanted to own a piece of Meat Loaf, as the jumps in sales were particularly impressive. Album sales went up 18,684%, and individual digital track sales rose a whopping 33,793%
