Meat Loaf Recovering After Collapsing Thursday Onstage in Edmonton

According to Meat Loaf’s management, the big guy is in stable condition today recovering from dehydration after collapsing Thursday night( 6-16 ) onstage near the end of his concert in Edmonton Alberta Canada. CNN reports that Meat Loaf had already postponed the show earlier in the week due to illness.

If you think Meat Loaf‘s approach to rock’n’roll is theatrical and bombastic, wait until you hear the all-too-true tale of big money and influence which threatened not only his career but his safety in this classic rock interview. This often hilarious, sometimes sobering conversation features musical highlights from Bat Out of Hell (“You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth”,“Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad”,”Paradise by the Dashboard Light”), “I’d Do Anything for Love( But I Won’t Do That)” , “Modern Girl” with its Broadway-worthy refrain, a terrific duet with comedic actor Jack Black on “Like a Rose”, and “California Isn’t Big Enough” from Hang Cool Teddy Bear. -Redbeard
