He's suing for negligence, premises liability and person injury damages for him and his wife Deborah Lee Gillespie Aday.

He'll only get the personal injury and negligence...... but two outta three ain't bad.

He had to sleep on it before he made the decision to sue.

You're right. He didn't exactly pursue this lawsuit like a bat out of hell.

He couldn't see the edge of the stage by the dashboard light.

I saw Meatloaf perform at a rock festival about 10-12 years ago. Although he was the headliner that night, he was really a pathetic shell of his former self. Dee Snyder of Twisted Sister was the opening act that night. But Dee put on a way better show.

Heard while Meatloaf was falling,

"I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you"

Problem was, she wasn't there to do it.

You're right. I've seen him twice -- once when he was young and once 100 lbs. later. You can't keep up that exuberance on stage carrying a couple of spare tires, not to mention having Parkinson's disease.

Rcade, did you know he went to NTSU? My cousin (a --- grad from your era, not Meatloaf's) told me that.

Wow. I thought he died like 2 decades ago.

What exactly makes him a douche? He wrote some catchy memorable songs, cut him some slack.

If a "Meatloaf" falls in an arena, does it make a sound? Just curious, did he suddenly lose his support for tort reform like most righties when something bad happens to them?

What's funny is he's a personal responsibility type suing for his own lack of personal responsibility. He seen the stage and it wasn't by the dashboard lights - ALL the lights were on.

That's why these places carry insurance because of sue happy people looking to make a quick buck right? So why not milk the system? amiright? I'm not saying I don't get it - but what a hypocrite. I do have to say it looked like a crappy setup - but it was his choice to go on "stage".

Arena? Looked like a conference room. lol...

He has become a bitter old douche though. Might be because he isn't performing in arenas anymore and he wasn't smart enough to save money and is performing in conference rooms now...

"What's funny is he's a personal responsibility


Citation needed.

He has always been apolitical in interviews. He's been associated with both Bill Clinton (sang at his pre-inauguration ball) and attended W's inauguration). I've never heard him take stance on anything political or personal responsibility. Please cite your source.

Did you read the story as to how the curtains were arranged and no safety bar or wall? Like you, I didn't see it, but it sounds like the curtain was hung in a manner that made it look like there was a floor beneath it. If you know otherwise, please cite that as well.

"did he suddenly lose his support for tort reform...


I've looked at several sources, but I can't find anything that indicated Meatloaf supported tort reform.

If I'm wrong, please cite your source and I'll stand corrected and offer an apology.

Why do you guys have to be so hateful that you need to make stuff up to disparage a person? I don't get that bitter and hateful mentality you guys have.

Goat, I just assume since he, Mr. Loaf is a righty, he must be for tort reform. It's in all republicans DNA, up until the moment they bust their butt falling down. Then it's, I'm gonna get mine"! And yes I enjoy his songs quite a lot.

#22 | Posted by goatman No, Meatloaf is not fat, he lost about 150 after he had a heart attack in the late nineties. He has not preformed sense he had this accident. He has produced 13 albums, some classic.

Meatloaf is a singer. He is not a songwriter.

#26 | Posted by prius04 So I guess all those songs wrote by Marvin Lee Aday including hit songs from 4 different decades do not exist? "Bat Out of Hell", "Paradise by the Dashboard Light", "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth", and "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" etc? He has wrote a lot.

The artistic apex of Meatloaf's career was his appearance in 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'.

A guy named Jim Steinman wrote the songs you've mentioned. Meatloaf sang them.

Meatloaf falls off stage

there has to be a joke on this somewhere.

Saw Meatloaf in a small venue in Toronto a few years back... was an awesome show. One hot guitar player in the band... Paul Crook maybe?
