Life Story of Meat Loaf

Meat Loaf was born in Texas, and moved to Los Angeles in 1967 to play in local bands and appear in musicals such as "Hair" and "As You Like It". He made his film debut with a memorable role in cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975). In 1977, he and lyricist Jim Steinman released an operatic rock album called "Bat Out Of Hell", the record was huge and has sold 35,000,000 copies worldwide. However, the tour promoting the album took a toll on Meat's voice and left him unable to sing on the follow-up record "Bad For Good". Meat Loaf stayed in the dark through the eighties doing 4 records which never got any airplay or chart position in the US. Meat Loaf appeared in films Out of Bounds (1986) as a Pilot, and The Squeeze (1987) with Michael Keaton. But after getting back together with Steinman, they delivered a powerful sequel "Bat Out Of Hell II" which went to #1 in the US and UK. Bat II has now sold an excess of 20,000,000 copies. His TV credits include the Soldier being held prisoner in Vietnam in Lightning Force (1991), a mad Doctor who invents a serum to keep zombies from deteriorating in Monsters (1988) and a slick Landlord of a restaurant who ends up on the menu in HBO...

17 November 2003 - Collapsed whilst performing on stage in London. Doctors said it was Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is a syndrome of pre-excitation of the ventricles of the heart due to an accessory pathway known as the Bundle of Kent. This accessory pathway is an abnormal electrical communication from the atria to the ventricles.

Meat Loaf in The Apprentice (2004)

When he first started rehearsals for the stage version of The Rocky Horror Show neither he nor the rest of the cast were aware of the sexual content of the play. It was only relatively late into the rehearsal stage that they found out, when Tim Curry (whom they had never met, he had been brought over from the London production) turned up on stage in full Frank-N-Furter costume and make-up singing "Sweet Transvestite." It was then that they realized what the show was really about. Meat Loaf walked out of the rehearsals and refused to do the show, but was talked into doing one performance to see how it went. When he saw how much the audience loved the show he agreed to stay on for the entire run.

Despite being known as a singer, Meat Loaf has only sung in two films - The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny (2006). The reason for this is because he wanted to be taken seriously as an actor and not get typecast into singing roles.
