After 35 years, it still sells an estimated 200,000 copies annually and stayed on the charts for over nine years, making it one of the best selling albums of all time.Although he enjoyed success with Bat Out of Hell and Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell and earned a Grammy Award for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance for the song "I'd Do Anything for Love" on the latter album, Meat Loaf experienced some initial difficulty establishing a steady career within his native US.

He ranked 96th on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock".He is one of the best-selling artists of all time, with worldwide sales of more than 80 million records.

He also appeared in David Fincher's Fight Club in 1999 as the character Robert Paulson. Wikipedia

12 Despite being known as a singer, Meat Loaf has only sung in two films - The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny (2006). The reason for this is because he wanted to be taken seriously as an actor and not get typecast into singing roles.
13 Received a fan letter from a Swedish fan named Jerker, which has been widely regarded as the greatest joke ever in the Swedish fan base with the phrase: "Don't let your meat loaf, jerker!".
14 Lived in Freeland, Michigan for a few years with a family.
15 When he first started rehearsals for the stage version of The Rocky Horror Show neither he nor the rest of the cast were aware of the sexual content of the play. It was only relatively late into the rehearsal stage that they found out, when Tim Curry (whom they had never met, he had been brought over from the London production) turned up on stage in full Frank-N-Furter costume and make-up singing "Sweet Transvestite." It was then that they realized what the show was really about. Meat Loaf walked out of the rehearsals and refused to do the show, but was talked into doing one performance to see how it went. When he saw how much the audience loved the show he agreed to stay on for the entire run.
16 In addition to songs from his own albums, his concerts usually include the song "Hot Patootie", which he sang as Eddie in The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).

Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome is a syndrome of pre-excitation of the ventricles of the heart due to an accessory pathway known as the Bundle of Kent. This accessory pathway is an abnormal electrical communication from the atria to the ventricles.

27 Has played in two movies with Richard O'Brien, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975), and Spice World (1997).
28 He was offered lead vocalist position in the rock band Foreigner, but wanted to stay with Jim Steinman.
29 Had a massive standing ovation at the CBS convention in New Orleans in 1977-78
30 According to the Encyclopedia of Rock Stars, Meat Loaf began a Slim Fast plan in 1990 and lost 84 pounds. This made him $1,000,000 richer

#Quote
1 In the early 1980s, I got into a war with my management - they just kept on suing me and I lost everything. So I had to go out on tour to make sure the electricity stayed on.
2 It's like people call me a rock star or this or that. And I go, 'Don't call me that. I don't think of myself in those terms. If you have to call me anything, call me a chameleon.
3 There was a band in Australia named Midnight Oil, and they were a very, very political, and they literally hit you over the head with a hammer. U2 sometimes can hit you over the head with a rubber hammer.
4 You know, people think I named myself Meat Loaf, even though I didn't. And they think anyone who would name himself Meat Loaf couldn't have an IQ higher than four.
5 When I do film, I really take on roles and I take on characters.
6 When your name is on the marquee, you either get the glory or you get the hits.
7 A lot of actors, they know the camera's there, and if somebody moves around or makes noise or whatever then they get all distracted, but I pretty much lock in. You can't distract me too much.
8 For the past 32 years, I've done nothing outside the entertainment business. I've had some real highs and some real lows, but I love the work so much that I never once thought of quitting.
9 I'm asthmatic. I was a lot bigger back then, and I still get winded on stage today. But I've learned how to pace it now. I have musical breaks in there.
10 Just ask anybody who is getting old - everything starts hurting. For me, it's my shoulders, thumbs, knees and feet.
11 My gigs are built on improvisation: I go out there and I'm like the Energizer bunny.
12 My life's far too complicated to be summed up in one song. It would take 20 just to represent one single day.
13 The day that I ever become hip... please shoot me and put me outta my misery!
14 There's no explanation for success. Success just comes out of life.
15 Rock n' Roll came from the slaves singing gospel in the fields. Their lives were hell and they used music to lift out of it, to take them away. That's what rock n' roll should do - take you to a better place.
16 I never fit in. I am a true alternative. And I love being the outcast. That's my role in life, to be an outcast.
17 As most people know, I am a vampire, so I have no reflection. Every day, I paste a picture of someone else on the mirror.
18 'Hell in a Handbasket' is not dealing with the political nature of the country. It's dealing with the humanity and the compassion of the world.
19 I'm an actor. I started as an actor. I started on Broadway doing 'Hair' and Shakespeare in the Park.
20 Rock and roll is about getting free beer and getting laid.
21 [asked in 2003 interview whether he was born in 1947 or 1951] 1951. I have it on my passport and driving license. [I said 1947 in my autobiography] because I just wanted to maintain a constant lie. I was born in 1951 but see what a great thing it is, because everybody asks me? And I can keep it up--I can tell you I was born in 1952. Names and ages piss me off. So I just continually lie.
