Legendary musician “Meat Loaf” has unfortunately passed away at the tender age of 74.
Initial reports are citing COVID as the official cause of death, but everyone is ‘officially’ dying of COVID these days regardless of what pre-existing medical conditions they might have had.
Mr. Meat’s Bat Out of Hell is one of the best-selling albums of all time. Worldwide sales estimates go as high as 30 million.
“Its U.S. singles “Two of Three Ain’t Bad” and “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” peaked at No. 11 and No. 39, respectively, but both were certified platinum four decades later in 2018,” Deadline reported.
In 1993, Meat Loaf released Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell, which has sold more than 5 million units in the U.S.
Before Bat Out of Hell, however, there was The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Meat Loaf played “Eddie” in the 1975 film, a wild and wildly unlucky ex-delivery boy who belts out “Hot Patootie” before meeting his tragic end.
His other screen credits include Fight Club, Roadie, Motorama, Crazy in Alabama, Stage Fright, Spice World, Leap of Faith, and Americathon. He also appeared in several episodes of the 2017-18 series Ghost Wars.
Farewell, Meat Loaf. Thanks for the music and the laughs.
