Meat Loaf

Marvin Lee Aday is a singer and occasional actor who, for reasons never definitively answered, has recorded under the name Meat Loaf. In all likelihood a childhood nickname, the tag stuck, and many puns followed as the performer -- who tipped the scales at well over 300 pounds -- became one of the biggest chart acts of the 1970s before enjoying a commercial renaissance two decades later.

Meat Loaf was born in Dallas, TX. The product of a family of gospel singers, he moved to Los Angeles in 1967 and formed a group known as both Meat Loaf Soul and Popcorn Blizzard. The band earned some renown through opening gigs in support of the Who, the Stooges, and Ted Nugent before Meat Loaf won a role in a West Coast production of the musical Hair. During a tour stop in Detroit, he and a fellow castmate named Stoney teamed to record the 1971 LP Stoney & Meat Loaf for Motown's Rare Earth imprint. After a tenure in the off-Broadway production Rainbow (In New York), Meat Loaf earned a slot in More Than You Deserve, a musical written by classically trained pianist Jim Steinman. An appearance in the cult film The Rocky Horror Picture Show followed, and in 1976 Meat Loaf also handled vocal duties on one side of Nugent's LP Free-for-All.

Soon, Meat Loaf reteamed with Steinman for a tour with the National Lampoon road show, after which Steinman began composing a musical update of the Peter Pan story titled Never Land. Ultimately, much of what Steinman composed for Never Land became absorbed into 1977's Bat Out of Hell, the album that made Meat Loaf a star. Produced by Todd Rundgren, the record was pure melodrama, a teen rock opera that spawned three Top 40 singles -- "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," and "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth" -- on its way to becoming one of the best-selling albums of the decade.

A sequel was planned, but in 1981 Steinman issued his own solo debut, Bad for Good. After Meat Loaf released his own follow-up, Dead Ringer, rumors began flying, and it was reported that Loaf had been unable to record the songs that comprised the Steinman album due to physical and emotional problems. Eventually, Steinman filed suit against Meat Loaf and his label, Epic, and none of his songs appeared on the 1983 Meat Loaf effort Midnight at the Lost and Found. After subsequent records like 1984's Bad Attitude and 1986's Blind Before I Stop bombed, the singer declared bankruptcy and began physical and psychological rehabilitation to restore his road-ravaged voice.

After several years in relative obscurity, Meat Loaf and Steinman reunited in 1993 for Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, which continued the original's story line and duplicated its thunderous sound. The follow-up proved almost as successful as the first Bat Out of Hell, selling over five million copies and yielding a massive hit single with "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)." Without Steinman, he returned in 1995 with Welcome to the Neighborhood. The career-long concert compilation Live Around the World followed one year later, but Meat Loaf released no more new material until well into the 2000s. Finally he recorded Couldn't Have Said It Better, which was released on Sanctuary in 2003. Three years later, after resolving the disputes surrounding its release, Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose came out (sans Steinman, though many of his songs were used, which was what caused the problems in the first place), tracks from which were added to the production of Loaf's Bat Out of Hell play. Meat Loaf's 11th studio album, Hang Cool Teddy Bear, appeared in 2010. ~ Jason Ankeny

My wonderful friend and client, Steve Popovich, was instrumental in making Meatloaf a star by believing in him when no one else did and signing him to Cleveland Records in 1975. Steve was one of the few totally honest persons in the music business, had a great ear for music, and tragically passed away a few years ago. I will never forget him and miss him greatly to this day.

I don't feel like reading through everyone else's posts, so this may have already been addressed, but Meat's Pandora bio states that it was never explained why he took the handle Meat Loaf. Not true. The nickname was given to him by his abusive father before he ran away from home. Watch VH1's Behind the Music from time to time, Pandora!!!

Well, I would definitively say that Meat Loaf sounds exponentiall y cooler than Marvin Aday.

I saw Meatloaf at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on Halloween night 2013 and it was a night of pure magic. During the show and especially when he sang You Took The Words Right out of My Mouth I was 22 again, my beloved Mary Jo was still alive and the world was filled with limitless possibilitie s . His was easily the best show I have ever seen on the Vegas Strip.

He sings the most romantic song ever written and it was my wedding song. I'd Lie For You is a brilliant, sincere, and beautiful song.

Many of us lived the classic Paradise by the Dashboard Lights and later I would do anything for Love. Saw Meat is Vegas is 2014 @ Planet Hollywood. Couldn't believe how many old rockers were there..up, dancing and singing. Meat's songs are in the hearts of many.

Best song on the BOOH album is the title cut- Steinman is a musical icon.

Earlier this year, "Weird Al" Yankovic mentioned that he thinks "I Would Do Anything for Lunch" would be a great Meatloaf parody.
