    R.I.P Meatloaf

    So sad to hear that Meatloaf has died aged 74. A huge loss on several levels.

    Gutted. I have fond memories of listening to him in the car with my dad as a child.

    I was shocked when I saw this on the news
    I was not much of a fan but he always came across as decent bloke in interviews who didn’t take his self seriously.
    He also delivered Steinman’s lyrics with the humour intended.

    My kids knew whenever they got a lift in my car they would be listening to MEAT LOAF, RIP, really sad to hear of his passing :(

    One of my favorites.

    He wasn’t my cup of tea but I have fond memories of ‘Bat out of Hell’ and ‘Anything for Love dominating the Box (music television you control) back in the early to mid 90s .

    I’m sure I still have the original LP “Bat Out Of Hell”, from it’s original release. Played it again and again at the time, and still occasionally watch YouTube Meatloaf Live vids.

    Going to see The Classic Rock Show on 2nd Feb. If BOOH wasn’t still in their set-list, I suspect it will be back in there.

    RIP Meat Loaf - you created a lot of memories.

    Shame, saw him at Ashton Gate when they still used to give out free tickets to the people in the surrounding area.

    Never really my cup of tea, but an undeniable presence.

    Amazing voice but what always surprised me was how good he was on screen. In a few films like fight club he was an actor not a singer in a movie.

    Very sad. Great music that spans the generations. I’m a generation behind him and, although Bat Out Of Hell wasn’t my first album purchase, it was my first cd. When I first met my wife in 2001 her niece was ten and listened to Meatloaf constantly. I was only listening to some of his songs last night and my youngest sat and listened with me, which is rare, and she, of course, asked the eternal question “what is it he won’t do?”

    Sad. Supposedly a Hartlepool United fan, but I think that was made up.

    The silver lining is that it’s a great day to be listening to Radio 2!

    Was lucky enough to work with him on a commercial and he was an absolutely top bloke. Day 1, he wanted to know all the crew's names even if he wasn't directly working with them, next day he's second person on set (aside from director) and as people came in he'd remembered all of them from the spark to the set builders, to the runners. Real shame.

    Good question - apparently he explained it here what he won’t do -

    A sad day indeed.
    He reminded me of the rock equivalent of Pavarotti with his coloured hankies and flouncy sleeves.

    R.I.P. 'Meat'. Another of the great entertainers bites the dust. So sad.

    It is, the Robert Paulson quote was a Fight Club reference.

    His death was Covid related and he had a history of asthma ... not clear whether he was vaccinated ...
