Passed away peacefully at age 74.
Played the heck out of “Bat out of Hell” as a teenager. Surprised to read it is in the top 10 all-time best selling albums. What a great voice.
My mom used to freak when this song played…

This was a great back seat song…hazy recollection back to 1981, but my virginity was lost to either this song or Open Arms by Journey. I do remember that the whole experience didn’t make it to the end of the song…:)

To finish the triptych…probably the best song on the album.

Your name wouldn't happen to be Bobby would it?

Little known fact:

Meatloaf was technically a Motown artist, same as Marvin Gaye, Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder









Meat Loaf's musical history is pretty fantastic. He was a hippie jam band guy opening for so many great acts, then he was in the cast of Hair, Rocky Horror, then Bat out of Hell, etc.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers were the opening act for the original Bat out of Hell tour.

RIP - every year now it feels like we're losing someone we grew up listening to or watching on TV.
