Meat Loaf The Ethel Merman of Rock'n'Roll?

(hennemusic) In The Studio marks the 35th anniversary of Meat Loaf's "Bat Out Of Hell" with an exclusive interview as passionate, bombastic, and hysterically funny as the album itself.

"We got turned down by everybody, you know, four times, by every label I can think of," Meat Loaf tells In The Studio host Redbeard. "Clive Davis (president of Columbia Records at the time) said to me, 'Do you guys listen to Rock'n'Roll?', he said, 'You're like the Ethel Merman of Rock'n'Roll'."

Today, "Bat Out Of Hell" has sold in excess of 40 million records worldwide, supported by such classic songs as "Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad", "You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth" and the eight-minute epic "Paradise By The Dashboard Light." more on this story
