Alan Parsons is my guest In the Studio..

Constantly I had to remind myself that the trends these Atlanta natives were seeing in the mid-1990s, and the predictions they made then, sound eerily like today’s headlines.

Meat Loaf has died at age 74. If you think the songs of composer Jim Steinman are populated by fantastic people and places right out of central casting, they ain’t got nothin’ on the real life sojourn of the 300 pound interior lineman dressed in a prom tuxedo named Marvin Lee Aday from Dallas Texas, aka Meat Loaf. Here is a rare colorful classic rock conversation with the man.
