    i love this man's music very much. i do not care if it was considered corny or overblown or whatever. he understood rock and roll, he produced rock and roll.

    the article in the link says:

    My songs are anthems,” Steinman told Rolling Stone in 1978, “to those moments when you feel like you’re on the head of a match that’s burning. They’re anthems to the essence of rock & roll, to a world that despises inaction and loves passion and rebellion. They’re anthems to the kind of feeling you get listening to ‘Be My Baby’ by the Ronettes. That’s what I love about anthems — the fury, the melody and the passion.”

    Yes, indeed. our world is a poorer place today.

    I saw Meatloaf live, either late 1977 or early 1978, in Sydney, Australia on the Bat Out of Hell tour. Steinman played piano. Meatloaf was HUGE (take that as you will). We had second row seats. It was a great show, one I vividly remember. 73 years seems pretty young, especially as I grow older. RIP, Mr. Steinman.

    His style was a combination of 60s melodrama songs & Broadway. He also wrote Total Eclipse of the Heart.

    R.I.P. :(

    I've got it on CD. Great album, and I like his singing as much as Meatloaf's on Bat Out of Hell II. RIP Jim.

    I must confess I didn’t recognize the name. A quick search set me straight. Many great tunes, even though somewhat cheesy, that made a great career. His stuff sold and there’s nothing wrong with that

    RIP

    Then I'm down in the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun,
    Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike,
    And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell
    And the last thing I see is my heart,
    Still beating still beating
    Still beating still beating
    Breaking out of my body, and flying away
    Like a bat out of hell!!!
