Speaking of great singers... RIP Meat Loaf 1947-2011

RIP Meat Loaf: "I Would Do Anything For Love" was my favorite song like, in the world, ever, for a good year of my life.  I had the whole, 12 minute version memorized back in the day.



Never forget you, Meat.

And Paradise by the Dashboard Light ain't so bad, either.

(Great website for keeping up on who's dead, and who's not: http://www.deadoraliveinfo.com/dead.nsf/pages-nf/main)

And yeah. this IS an april fools hoax. Meat Loaf is still alive and rocking.

Where did you learn of his death? I don't think it is true on this April 1st or I at least hope this is a joke.

I can't find anything on google news and you didn't link anything. April Fools?

And I would do anything for a good April Fool's joke, but I won't believe that.

Whaaat??? I've met Meatloaf-- he liked to make sexual jokes-- where did you hear so quickly that he died?? I can't find any news of it...

This is clearly an April Fool's joke as Rob is far too musically sensitive to have liked the Meatloaf of "I would Do Anything For You" when the Meatloaf of RHPS had died..

everybody's musical taste had to start somewhere, Charles. Mine was that, and "Every Rose Has Its Thorn"

I WAS twelve at the time, in my defense, Chiam. Everybody has SOMETHING they were ashamed of when they were 12. Mine happens to be singing meatloaf in the shower.

Is this your version of a "Rick Roll"? I almost died!
