    Hogbog better get busy on that JJP Rocky Horror pin. The number of actors that are left to do callouts is dwindling...

    Haha. Everyone has a favorite. It's hard to pick just one. Bat out of Hell was great, too, but Rocky Horror rose above as a key part of my misspent youth.

    Damn, not long after Jim Steinman passed. The spectacle and enthusiasm they both bought to those songs is unrivaled. RIP, if the thrill is gone, then it's time to take it back!

    Yeah, the two Bat out of Hell albums they did together (like 15+ years apart) were the ones that had the magic. Whether they wanted to be or not, they were a team.

    Left before he could tell us what he wouldn't do for love. RIP

    #11 5 months ago

    Bat out of hell 2 dropped when I was in high school. I remember hearing I will do anything for love at the teen dances. That album exposed a new generation to meatloaf. I hadn’t heard all of the 1st album back to back before then, but I instantly loved it too.

    “I couldn't take it any longer
    Lord I was crazed
    And when the feeling came upon me
    Like a tidal wave
    I started swearing to my god and on my mother's grave
    That I would love you to the end of time
    I swore that I would love you to the end of time!
    So now I'm praying for the end of time
    To hurry up and arrive
    'Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
    I don't think that I can really survive
    I'll never break my promise or forget my vow
    But God only knows what I can do right now
    I'm praying for the end of time
    It's all that I can do
    Praying for the end of time,
    So I can end my time with you!” - Meatloaf

    Since he wont be needing it anymore, I call that nickname.

    #22 5 months ago

    Geez, these keep hurting.

    Paradise, and Bat out of hell were anthems for me, as I turned 18.
    I had moved back to NY, and Meatloaf was playing several shows.

    I actually caught him playing pinball after a show, in Westbury Nathans.
    Years later, in New Haven, he would hang locally.

    Just hearing the song and Phil Rizzuto conjures my memories of debating marriage.

    RIP, your music and animated play on Paragon are sweet memories.

    RIP meatloaf

    #24 5 months ago

    Yes, Marvin Lee Aday was his real name. Shocked and saddened by this. One of the greatest debut albums ever. I told my wife to make a meatloaf tonight in his honor. R.I.P. Meat.

    #25 5 months ago

    Total bummer. No one could belt it out like the Loaf. RIP Marvin

    Sounds like a good way to honor him...

    I could put the backglass of my Gottlieb "Paradise" on the front seat and turn on the dashboard lights.

    Sad to hear :{ but Bat out of hell album is one of my favorite albums of all time, It will be remembered forever.
    Then like a sinner before the gates of Heaven I'll come crawling on back to you. Thanks Meatloaf for the great music

    His name is MEATLOAF

    #32 5 months ago

    I was never really a Meatloaf fan, but I did enjoy the acting roles he played over the years.

    Wow, that's even more terrible. What a day...

    What the heck this day is nuts first lyman and now this…literally picked up an arcade this morning driving home and paradise by the dashboard light was on.

    Bat out of Hell would be a grail pin for me. The music and the artwork… to me they would make a great pinball.
    By the reactions I get when I say this I know it’s never going to happen even though he sold over 100M records. One day if I have the skill and means I might re-theme a Metallica, combining one of the best coded games with one of my favourite albums.
    Some may see this as crazy, but I’m not a Metallica fan and I can already see where some of the artwork and songs could be used.

    #38 5 months ago
    Quoted from jrpinball:Yes, Marvin Lee Aday was his real name.

    When stepping on his 8th Grade Coaches' foot, the Coach said. "Get off of my foot Meatloaf".
    Needless to say, the name stuck..

    #39 5 months ago

    Just watched Black Dog last week…sorry Road House fans but Black Dog is better….you get Meat Loaf and Swayze LOL! Always loved seeing Meat Loaf pop up in movies.

    74 is a good run for him. He has had health issues for a long time I believe. Sad to hear this news.

    #40 5 months ago

    Bat Out Of Hell will always be a favorite album and song for me. Last time I saw him was about 4 years ago. We had front and center and he just wasn't himself. He was dripping with sweat before the first song even started and we didn't know if he would make it through the whole show. He did but like I said not really Meatloaf. Two weeks later he collapsed on stage and seemed to have been taking easier since then.

    Have tickets at the local high school performing arts center for Meet Loaf in a few weeks. Really great place to see a show and supposedly this guy really nails it, I hope so.

    Too many people leaving us.

    For whatever reason I don't have a single music pin in my collection, though I do like playing them on location. This would be one (and maybe Queen) that would make the grade. We (wife and I) still listen to this album on a regular basis, especially road trips, one of the few albums that doesn't had a bad song in the bunch.

    "Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close, here's the throw, here's the play at the plate
    Holy cow, I think he's gonna make it!"

    See if you can find the interview with Phil Rizzuto where he talks about taping this, hilarious. He had no idea how it was going to be used till after he maintaned.

    He said nuns would give him dirty looks for years.

    That was such a crazy thing to throw into the middle of a song, but it works.
