Meatloaf, 68, is one of the top-selling rock artists.


  • Holly Golightly says:

    Did Meatloaf merely have a moment of self-awareness about the name, “Meatloaf” and it’s truly banal overtones? A 68 year old meatloaf is a pretty daunting object. Perhaps he’ll be revived and can re-enter the pantheon under a new moniker, “Cooked Goose”.

  • Dave T says:

    He’s singing, “I would do anything for love,” then collapses. The next line, which he never gets to: “But I won’t do that.”
    Always the showman.

  • Paul Wright says:

    A performer collapses on stage and is rushed to hospital. Fortunately his condition now appears to be stable, but this was not known when the two previous replies were posted. I find it immensely sad that people have so little empathy or fellow feeling that in such circumstances they think it clever or appropriate to make snide and insensitive remarks of this kind.
