Interview: Meat Loaf on Fight Club, Miley Cyrus, and why he isn’t a musician

27 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

This month will see the release of Meat Loaf’s 13th studio album, Braver Than We Are. Coming nearly 40 years after the release of his cult classic Bat Out of Hell, the album is a continuation of what’s been a long, strange, and successful career in theatrics for the 68-year-old Texas native. (It’s also a reunion with his most successful collaborator, songwriter Jim Steinman.) As a sort of counter-culture polymath, Meat Loaf’s music and acting careers have more or less been one and the same since his breakthrough role as Eddie/Dr. Everett Scott in both the stage and film versions of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. His unlikely success since then has, in many ways, resembled the same kind of theatrical story arc of his music and its rock-opera characteristics.

Meat Loaf Loves His New Record Braver Than We Are So Much, He Listened to It 7 Times at 3 A.M.

16 September 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Meat Loaf has a cold. That voice - superhuman, louder than a locomotive, able to leap tall octaves in a single bound - sounds hoarse and congested over the telephone today. He's convinced it's allergies. I offer my apologies, which he quickly dismisses. "You don't control the pollen. Or Do You!?" He's joking, but I'm momentarily terrified. To be on the receiving end of Meat Loaf's roar, even at half blast, can be intimidating. It'll take a hell of a lot more than a case of sniffles to enfeeble that larynx, an instrument that's unleashed rock arias for more than four decades. »
