A Los Angeles based publicist has reached out to Metal Sludge and has informed us that a “statement” is going to be released shortly regarding Meat Loaf and his current health status.


Metal Sludge — According to a source from the greater Nashville area the legendary rock singer Meat Loaf is in very bad health and just may be on his deathbed.

Our source alleges that real name Michael Lee Aday, has been sick with Covid and the word is, that time is short for the iconic front-man.

Meat Loaf is revered as one of the greatest rock singers in history with his Bat Out of Hell trilogy—Bat Out of Hell, Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, and Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster Is Loose—has sold more than 65 million albums worldwide.

This was not the singer’s first health scare.

While performing in Edmonton Canada back in 2016 Aday collapsed on stage in the middle of singing his mega hit song “I Would Do Anything For Love, But I Won’t Do That.”

We send positive wishes to Meat Loaf, his family and friends.
