Meat Loaf, 1947-2022


 From the New York Times:

His girth was a frequent source of jibes from disc jockeys and magazine caption writers, though Meat Loaf was in on the joke.

Describing his meeting with Mr. Steinman to the British music magazine Mojo in 2017, Meat Loaf said he auditioned with a song called “(I’d Love to Be as) Heavy as Jesus.” Mr. Steinman, impressed, told him, “By the way, you’re as heavy as two Jesuses.”

“It was my kind of humor,” Meat Loaf recalled.
