WhyteRaven74: T.M.S.: weirdest guy in show business

Steinman? Doesn't strike me as the particularly weird type.

xria: I thought it was the Bee Gees that had written half the pop hits since the 70s?

Actually it's David Foster. And that's not an exhaustive list...


After reading that list, he should be jailed for life.

I always loved Jim Steinman. Meat Loaf, not so much.

I played golf with him once at a benefit for the Boy Scouts in Westchester County NY. He seemed like a nice normal guy.

I'll confess much of the anecdata about Meat Loaf being a prick was probably generated by yobs who ran up to him with a writing implement and a flat surface and demanded he scribble on something while he was busy trying to do something else. I have no idea how I would handle that bullshiat at all hours of the day.

T.M.S.: Ebenator: T.M.S.: WhyteRaven74: T.M.S.: weirdest guy in show business

Jim Steinman:

Owns two apartments in the Trumph International Hotel because the first one filled up so quickly with his junk it was impossible to move in there. The second one is now filled with crap so when he has people over he rents a third. Both apartments have the windows painted black.

When he goes out to eat he orders literally everything on the menu and then pick and chooses his meal from all the plates. Friends and associates quickly learn not to order anything when he is around because there is never a shortage of food. When he orders McDonalds the bill is usually about $300. (its not that he has an eating disorder, he is just too rich to bother deciding what he wants to eat without seeing it first)

Jim has a mansion in Connecticut he has only been to a few times. His cat lives there. But because he hates cats he hires security guards to live in the house and care for it. Years ago the cat ran away and Jim used his connections to go on television and plead for the animals return. Much to the amusement of the news casters.

Jim has hundreds of sock puppets, aliases, whatever you want to call them that endless argue with each other on the internet whether Steinman is a better composer than Wagner. They often agree he is.
His wardrobe choices alone could fill a psychology book.

Jim is an amazing talent. But a really weird dude.

WTF? Are you kidding?

Kidding about what in particular? Steinman is a very strange dude. But he has written some of the best rock/ pop tunes ever. Even if he is a one man rock re-cycle industry.

Tonight is What it Means to be Young.

AKA Der Tanz der Vampire

or, Total Eclipse of the Heart

AKA: Liebesduett / Totale Finsternis

You can do that all day with his tunes. Even with the shiat he stole from Yes.


I wasn't doubting you. I just never realized the level of craziness.

I wish someone could post the link to the video of ML's tragically epic singing FAIL at the Romney fundraiser.

Also, does this dude now live by the river in his van?

People PAY to see a Meat Loaf tribute act?


I won't do that.
/No no. I won't do that.

whoa.. please explain this to me...

i listened to these thinking they were going to sound a 'little' like each other, but they're the same exact songs. did he purchase the rights to these songs and reword them? or just go balls out and flip the bird the original song writers?

either way.. good artists borrow, great artists steal.

Who would want to do a Meatloaf tribute band? Meatloaf sucks.

He didn't have to purchase the rights; he wrote them all.

douchebag/hater: FTFA: 'Multi-millionaire Bat Out Of Hell singer Meat Loaf - real name Michael Aday - sued Dean in a California court after he refused to give up the domain name www.MeatLoaf.org.'

Did I miss something?

Since when can a California state court tell a guy in England what he can or can't do?


Since 1967.

PacManDreaming: FTA: "Multi-millionaire Bat Out Of Hell singer Meat Loaf - real name Michael Aday - sued Dean in a California court after he refused to give up the domain name www.MeatLoaf.org."

Too bad he didn't get to keep his site. I'd use it to post the most obnoxious, obscene and outrageous Meat Loaf "parody" crap I could invent.

Seriously, why does a *snicker* celebrity *giggle* like Meat Loaf have to act like raging prick over something like this? That fat, washed up has-been ought to be glad someone out there liked his crappy music enough to actually do a tribute act. What a complete jerk.

/totally agree. Not only don't I like the group..the guy looks like a fat ass jabba the hut. Why not take it as a compliment? fark off has been lardo.

Yeah. I was not clear. He owns them and the songs are brilliant. It's just that he re-purposes them to suit his needs at any given time. That musical I linked to was entirely composed with existing material. Of course he can rightly say the tunes are a life's work in process and applicable to his maturing desires. But when you can create an entire Broadway cast recording in iTunes out of a half dozen different pre-existing albums people are going to ask questions.

So real Meat Loaf sued fake Meat Loaf and won fake Meat Loaf's house and wife?

I had no idea about any of this, thanks for posting. I always enjoy when you share some insight into that strange world that I have no connection to. I'm also glad you included one of my jokes on the VT Cruiser a couple of years ago. Later.

Thanks. That was fun. The car went over well. We murdered them in ping pong balls this year. MSG NYE
