Vale to Meat Loaf (1947-2022)
Growing up in the 1970s Meat Loaf (Marvin Lee Aday) and Jim Steinman’s album Bat Out Of Hell was part of life.

If they didn’t create the power ballad, they certainly perfected it.
There was a bus trip where it played constantly.
And it sounded subversive in a way that younger teenagers gravitated towards.
It also invited raucous singing along.
The fact the album cover was painted by comix artist Richard Corben was also a plus.

His appearance in the Rocky Horror Picture Show was also a standout cameo.
In later years it was fun watching him as a character actor popping up in a variety of roles.
