Great singer and the album: "Bat Out Of Hell" was a must have in the 70's. Great songs sung by an amazing 3 octave voice.

RIP

    Now THAT is someone I will miss - two out of three albums were great...and the others not so bad either.



    He was a neat person outside the rocker stage - had some substance to him which is sadly lacking in some of the rock stars.


    I still play Bat out of Hell I and II (didn't care much for III) ...

      When I read this, my first thought was "Well, 74 is pretty old".

      My second thought was "Wait my wife s 74".

      Soooooooo....yup, too young.

    He was 74....or are you just making the standard too-bad-so-sad commentary?

    I always thought how much like the actor Jack Black he looked, or the other way around. This was personified in I think the Rock School movie where Meatloaf made a guest appearance and Jack Black exclaimed: "Dad!"

    On those two albums that are my favorites I sing right along - know every word. I agree about Jack Black....MeatLoaf to me was one of those rare people who looked better as he got older.


    Years ago he was on The Apprentice and was a very practical, common sense person....or that was the impression at least.

      I used to watch every episode of The Apprentice. I wanted to see the business end of it. How they accomplished their tasks.

      I remember Meatloaf being on one season. He did impress me as a kind man, and practical. He got into a very heated screaming match with Gary Busey. Busey was as crazy as a loon, but he also impressed me as a kind soul.

      And I also remember being very surprised by the people that ended up being impressive.

      Usually, not who I would have thought.

          I have no idea. Look up Meatloaf The Apprentice and it will be the first thing that pops up, I'm sure.

            Ahhh, I see your memory is the same of mine. He was called "Meatloaf" Now run along to Google and type it in exactly as above, exactly as you wrote it.

            Naughty Nelson has yet again forced our timeline to mix with another and we picked up the alt name. He was always called "Meat Loaf", never "Meatloaf" A little separation has crept in. Of course there's always a little video to watch that shows quite a few record circles on official disks where he is clearly Meatloaf, not to mention a load of official ticket stubs showing the same. Nelson fails to cover up his eradications from history entirely.

            One wonders if some of the things that people call a Mandela Effect is actually a Google algorithm/search engine re-writing history for some reason. Also, how can I look up a recipe to make Meat Loaf now?, when I type in Meat Loaf, all I get is the singer? Try it.

    It is two words - he'd been producing albums for some time before I became a fan...and my son used to laugh at me when I'd forget the name and refer to 'meat ball'....

      Interesting, if you watch the vid how he was depicted on the disks as meatloaf and on the stubs. If you have the albums, I don't, could you check what's on the cover or disk, or what's printed on the CD's

    I just read an article about Randy Travis comments on Meat Loaf's death....


    I was shocked - I thought Travis died several years ago....oops.
