Meat Loaf, the bigger-than-life singer whose 1977 record “Bat out of Hell” was one of the best-selling albums of all time, has died aged 74, according to a statement on his verified Facebook page.

“Our hearts are broken to announce that one-of-a-kind Meat Loaf passed away this evening with his wife Deborah at his side,” the statement said. “Daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends have been with him for the past 24 hours.”

No cause of death was shared in the post.

Singer real name is Marvin Lee Aday, born in Dallas.

Meat Loaf’s two biggest albums – 1977’s “Bat out of Hell” and his 1993 sequel “Bat out of Hell II: Back into Hell” – spawned several hit singles including “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” , “Two Out of Three Ain “t Bad” and “I’ll Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do It).”

He also won a grandmother in 1993 for Best Rock Solo Vocal Performance for the song “I’d Do Anything for Love”.

Meat Loaf has also appeared in a number of TV shows and movies, including hit classics “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Fight Club” and “Wayne’s World.”

The male singer once spoke out about how his appearance affects his performance. But in November 2021, he post on Facebook that he will be returning to the studio in the new year, while also noting that he has undergone four back surgeries.

“Back surgeries hurt everything. Before back surgery, I was still trying to do shows, that’s when some of you saw or heard of me collapsing on stage and eventually stopping the UK tour. I can’t hit high notes because of back pain. No mild back pain. The pain will bring you to your knees,” he wrote.
