The over-sized rock star that went by the name of ‘Meatloaf’ has sadly passed away.
Rock star ‘Meatloaf’ passed away this morning per a report from his family at Facebook.
CBS News reported this morning:
Meat Loaf, the heavyweight rock superstar loved by millions for his “Bat Out of Hell” album and for such theatrical, dark-hearted anthems as “Paradise by the Dashboard Light,” “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad” and “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That),” has died. He was 74.
The singer-songwriter-actor, born Marvin Lee Aday, died Thursday, according to a family statement on his Facebook page.
“Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight,” the statement said.
“His amazing career spanned six decades that saw him sell over 100 million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including ‘Fight Club,’ ‘Focus,’ ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ and ‘Wayne’s World.’”
“‘Bat Out of Hell’ remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time.”
“We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man,” the statement continues. … “From his heart to your souls…don’t ever stop rocking!”
No cause or other details were given, but Aday had numerous health scares over the years.
President Trump released a statement acknowledging the loss and noting that he knew and liked Meatloaf very much.
Meatloaf’s song “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” took the nation by storm.
