I’m sure you’ve all heard the news by now – but the much beloved bundle of joy and musical ingenuity of performer, Meatloaf has died at the age of 74. Unbeknown to the cause of the death (with many fingers pointing to heart strains), it comes as a huge crushing blow to the rock ‘n’ world that Meatloaf had a huge handful in. After selling more than 100 million of his album, Bat out of Hell, it has since become one of the biggest selling records of all time and simply placed Meatloaf on the map as a global icon and music superstar. It’s not just music where is prowess stops either. His outreach to the entertainment sector saw no bounds. Featuring “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, “Fight Club”, “Wayne’s World” and of course, Tenacious D’s Pick of Destiny, his character was as sublime and unique as the voice that he rocked with. Meatloaf, Marvin Lee Ady – keep on rockin’.

    I was never a big fan of Meat Loaf, but did like some of his songs, and acknowledge his huge contribution to music.

      I think I’m in the same boat to you here, I wasn’t an avid fan of Meatloaf but I was well aware of how prominent he was in the rock and film world.

    Sad news. Not unexpected, but still awful to hear.

      Yeah, most certainly. He wasn’t the healthiest of individuals but still. As you said, it’s never nice hearing of someone’s passing. Hopefully this year doesn’t take more of these rock ‘n’ roll souls. We need them to keep it going!

    My Dad played Bat out of Hell too many times to count. That’s what I’ll remember most. The 90s generation may remember him as the guy with the huge rack in Fight Club instead. He was a pretty tough dude in that movie.

    My favorite song of his is “I Would Do Anything for Love.” And I recall seeing him in “Black Dog”with Patrick Swayze. He was a multitalented man, and will be missed by many.
