Turned to the ‘Darkside’ – ‘If I Die, I Die’: Meat Loaf Spurned COVID Rules Before Death

COVID denialist, Trump worshipper and rabid anti-vaxxer...


DB: Theatrical rock superstar Meat Loaf, whose Bat Out of Hell is one of the bestselling albums of all time, has died at the age of 74. Reports say the singer and actor had recently fallen sick with COVID-19.

In an emotional statement posted to Facebook early Friday, the performer’s family said he was with his wife when he died and had said his final goodbyes to his two daughters in the past 24 hours. The star sold 100 million albums in his five-decade career and starred in movies including Fight ClubThe Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Wayne’s World, and did a stint on Donald Trump’s Celebrity Apprentice reality-TV show.

“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,” the family wrote in its announcement. “From his heart to your souls… don’t ever stop rocking!”

No cause of death was confirmed, but TMZ reported that Meat Loaf—whose real name was Marvin Lee Aday—died after falling “seriously ill” with COVID-19 in recent weeks. According to the site, he canceled a business meeting this week for a planned reality show named after his hit “I’d Do Anything for Love (but I Won’t Do That).”

The singer’s vaccine status isn’t known, but TMZ reported that he had recently spoken out against planned vaccine mandates in Australia.

  1. One of many chronically obese people passing before their time. Covid infection just helps push them over Deadman’s Falls. He really didn’t have much to say about anything for all those years.

  2. “Life is a Lemon and I Want My Money Back”…Wondering if he found a complaint department on the other side to sing that one to? Hey Fat Marvin, those shots were free, man. The paperwork takes a bit but it’s minor. Death isn’t.

  3. The story has not ended yet, we are still reading the book – Iranians have a saying “The end of the story is the best part” (very poor interpretation, because English is not a poetic language).

    • Not a poetic language? Wordsworth, Coleridge, Lord Byron, Keats, Shelley, Browning, John Donne, Shakespeare and A.E. Housman all disagree with you.

    • Ed I’m fluent in Persian and French literature. Everything being relative, Persian is considered the most poetic language by many with French following as an easy second.
      If I’m right the quote that Chask is using is about Ferdowsi’s book “the end of Shahname is happy” translated by some as “Praise a fair day at night.”

      But no worries I quote the writer Samuel Langhorne Clemens quite often.

  4. Tragically, or not, if he remained willfully unvaccinated, and deliberately eschewed the wearing of masks, all for politics, then he got exactly what he wanted.
