Meat Loaf 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
