Hope people don't take his death as an opportunity to make cheap jokes and puns.

 

I just won't do that.

Seen him in concert couple of times. Fantastic performer and great distinct voice.

He will be missed.

Loved meat leaf. Some voice and some energy on stage for such a big guy. 
 

Surprised he lived as long as he did. 
 

RIP

I was surprised to hear that he'd acted in 65 films as well as his music career.

 

I'm forever grateful to Bat Out of Hell for sealing a job interview years ago. I can't remember the full context but the boss man in the interview responded to a conversation with, "It was long ago and it was far away." to which I replied, "It was so much better than it is today." I sometimes wonder what he might have thought if he'd genuinely just been talking about something distant that was quite old and had never heard the song...

Great songs. 
 

Sad to hear the news on the radio driving to work this morning. 
 

RIP

Loved the Bat Out of Hell album and was fortunate enough to have been on first aid duty at the Playhouse for one of his gigs in the 80s. Even then, due to his weight/drugs/drink he had to go to the side of the stage to have oxygen administered. 

 

Fabulous showman RIP

Bat out of Hell was one of those iconic albums from my teenage years, bought it in 1978 IIRC, still have it in the attic.

 

RIP big man and thanks for the memories.

One of the best ever albums, that's for sure, seemed everybody had a copy in the late 70's.

A few years ago a journalist from the Scotsman did a great review of one of his gigs in Glasgow. It was only after it went to press that they discovered the gig had been cancelled due to ill health. She couldn’t be arsed watching him so just stayed at home in Edinburgh.

Fight Club. I'll remember him more for playing that part than for his music, to be honest.

That would have been my guess but ever since I saw that movie, I've never discussed it with anyone.

All roads lead to Gorgie

He was one of a kind. I like artists like him who are unique in their approach to music. 

He will be missed.

Have I just been unwittingly used as the straight man to help you reach your punchline? :D

I was in the wings at the left hand side of the stage as you look at it with the nurse who administered the oxygen. He was a tremendous performer.

When did that happen? Were you doing anything special at the time?

Marvin Lee Aday was his name when he was born.

 

He changed it to Michael in the early 80s.

Bat Out of Hell was one of those albums that everyone seemed to have at the time, along with Tubular Bells and Dark Side of the Moon.

 

His partnership with Steinman was just one of those things that seemed to click; when he tried to do it alone, not so much.

 

RIP, big fella.

On the other hand. Bad for Good showed how much Meat Loaf's voice contributed to the success of their collaborations.
