Meat Loaf: No Not The Food, The Rock Star!



Meat Loaf. Many people have heard of him, but many from the current generation probably don't know who he actually is. For a quick rundown he is a famous rocker and actor. His first album, Bat Out Of Hell, is the 5th best selling album of all time. He was a Broadway actor, with a notable appearance in the Rocky Horror Show as Eddie. In film he again plays Eddie in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
He is probably best recognized by the current generation as Robert "Bob" Paulson in fight club, and Jack Black's (ironically) anti-rock father in Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny.
His music could best be described as mini rock operas, and are well put together and well performed. I'll post some of the songs to this blog as to help expose the current generation to this amazing music.

  8. Have you heard of Jim Steinman? The guy that wrote Bat Out Of Hell. His album, Bad For Good, is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine.
