DER HARD-ROCK-TENOR IST GEGANGEN: MEAT LOAF MIT 74 JAHREN VERSTORBEN
- Jan 21, 2022
He gave pathos to Rock music: Meat Loaf, whose music was a link between Broadway spectacle and Hard Rock, has died at 74. The composer, lyricist and arranger Jim Steinman (died in 2021), who invented the Heavy Rock operettas, played a major role in his success. With Meat Loaf's solo debut BAT OUT OF HELL (1977), they released one of the most successful albums of all time (over 43 million units sold). Even though Meat Loaf explored new musical variations from time to time, the paths of the two artists crossed again and again. And as soon as they worked together, significant things came into being. In 1993, for example, BAT OUT OF HELL II: BACK INTO HELL - an album that reached number one in the charts worldwide. The cause of Meat Loaf's death has not yet been announced.
