Artist Countdown: Meat Loaf Top 30 Hits – 6pm ET @RealMeatLoaf

meat_loafMeat Loaf (born Marvin Lee Aday; September 27, 1947) is an American musician and actor. He is noted for the Bat Out of Hell album trilogy consisting of Bat Out of Hell, Bat Out of Hell II: Back Into Hell and Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster is Loose. Bat Out of Hell has sold more than 43 million copies worldwide. 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 (But I Won’t Do That)” on the latter album, Meat Loaf experienced some initial difficulty establishing a steady career within his native US. However, he has retained iconic status and popularity in Europe, especially the UK, where he ranks 23rd for the number of weeks overall spent on the charts as of 2006. 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 100 million copies. He has also appeared in over 50 movies and television shows, sometimes as himself or as characters resembling his stage persona. His most notable roles include Eddie in the American premiere of The Rocky Horror Show and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. He also appeared in David Fincher’s Fight Club in 1999 as the character Robert Paulson.  (Source: Wikipedia)
