We at Moshville Radio will be paying tribute to him today at 4pm and playing out Bat Out Of Hell 1 & 2 in full.
Grammy award winning singer Meat Loaf, real name Marvin Lee Aday, died on Thursday night. The news was confirmed in a statement on Friday by his longtime agent Micheal Greene.
In an official statement on Facebook, it was confirmed the singer and actor had died with his wife Deborah by his side. His family said: "Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side.
"We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man.
