Who Is Meat Loaf?
As it turns out, in the hill country west of Austin, in a big-ass house in a big-ass gated community, the singer known as Meat Loaf is hanging in there. It all pretty much sucks.

A born-to-lose Texas redneck who teamed up with a genius-type songwriter-producer named Jim Steinman and beat the odds to become a rock star, a fine bit-part movie actor and a temper-tantrum-thrower of some renown. Or he kibitzes with people on his Facebook page, where if you tick him off, you better watch out, because he can spew with the best of them. Learn something about tone.

There, he found work as a bouncer and started his first band, Meat Loaf Soul. After several lineup changes and name alterations, the band split up.
