The lights will be dimmed at karaoke bars from Tokyo to Timbuktu as disconsolate fat, sweaty men take to the stage.

 

To paraphrase/steal from Wallace and Gromit, it was a matter of Loaf and death.

RIP sad to hear Meatloaf died.

I remember him more from Rocky Horror than anything else: ‘Not Meatloaf again’  ‘That’s no way to pick your friends’ (etc).

RIP. The best album of the 1970s and also my favourite single of 1982 amongst other accolades.

Some click-bait-like looking metal site knew it:

https://metalsludge.tv/bat-out-of-hell-sources-say-meat-loaf-is-in-very-bad-health-with-covid-and-on-his-deathbed/

 

Could it actually have been COVID? They didn't officially release a cause of death yet, but maybe he was unvaccinated, so they don't want to reveal that. On the other hand, he might have had quite a few co-morbidities.

 

That was my first thought, though not based on anything concrete.  I would not be surprsied if he was a right wing anti-vaxxer/COVID conspiracy theorist.

Sad to see that the BBC obituary omitted his greatest acting role, Dennis the bus driver in Spice World.

He was in my very first DDP team on the basis that he always seemed like someone who might keel over at any minute.   

A unique and unforgettable performer.

That's one that has upset me. I was only listening to I Would Do Anything For Love on the way to work this morning. RIP.

Just missed the top 30 in 1986 with Rock N Roll Mercenaries and wouldn't hit the top 30 again until 1993.

 

Not a miss for my TOTP team, but having picked both Meat Loaf and Jim Steinman 2 years ago and for them both to be dead...wow.

 

By the way @gcreptile, I know you will still be working on them but the subheading in my Hits of 36 Years Ago team should refer to those who had a hit in 1986. Cheers.

A very  firm favourite of an older  relative of mine who died many years ago. He was often singing or playing I will do anything for love but I won't do that  This news has brought back very emotional memories  

A great talent.

Apparently I'm almost the only one with this opinion, but I couldn't stand his music and didn't think he was that good as an actor either. The worst scene with the worst song on the Rocky Horror Picture Show is the part where Eddie rides his motorcycle to the lab, imo.

But still... R.I.P.

Listening to Dead Ringer with a few drinks and I realise this is the biggest musical death of my lifetime (to me personally). None of the giants of my favourite genre have died yet (McCartney, Joel, Manilow, Diamond, Elton, Collins, Sting, Abba, Gallagher, Anderson). A close 2nd= would be Freddie and George Michael. Lennon died before I really got into music, and Bowie I always found annoying, but Meat Loaf deserves the recognition. Thanks Meat.

Huh, I could've sworn that members of Abba were dead.

No no, I thought his music was sickening.
