He appeared in the Broadway musical “Hair” before his first, little-known album (Stoney & Meatloaf) was released in 1971. His next album didn’t get released until 1977, after he appeared in “The Rocky Horror Picture Show“. That’s a movie I haven’t seen and a movie I’ll probably never see unless it’s accidental.
This was a hit from his second album, 1977’s Bat Out of Hell.
This was another hit from the 1977 Bat Out of Hell album. It’s a love song.
This was yet another hit from the 1977 Bat Out of Hell album.
This is only song I like from the 1993 Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell album.
Out of 13 albums, I only like three from one album and one from another. I listened to the first three a lot in 1979 and 1980, while sitting in a parked car at night at the top of Presidio Park in San Diego, California. When I wasn’t doing anything else, of course.
I saw him recently, in a TV series called “Ghost Wars“. I didn’t realize how much he’d aged (he’s 70 now). If he’s old, then so am I. Anyway, he was listed as “Meat Loaf Aday” in the credits.
