Rock fans all over the world were saddened to learn that Meat Loaf has died. News broke of the legendary performer's death on Friday morning. He was 74.
Meat Loaf, whose real name was Marvin Lee Aday, is best known for his on-stage antics, top-selling 1977 album Bat Out of Hell, his hit song, "I Would Do Anything for Love (but I Won't Do That)." He also had film and TV roles in Rocky Horror Picture Show, Fight Club, Spice World, and Wayne's World.
Stars and fans alike have been sharing tributes to the late musician-actor on social media.
Ed Norton, Meat Loaf's Fight Club co-star, shared several messages on Twitter in honor of the artist. "To us he will always be ‘Bob’. Those were some wonderful months of laughter & irreverence. The hardest thing about working w/ Meat was getting through any of these ridiculous moments without cracking up. Him lying on the table playing dead then belting out Zeppelin. Good times," the actor tweeted.
Norton also shared a photo from Fight Club, writing, "I don’t keep pictures from films around home. But I have this one in my office in a frame bc it makes me smile every time. It’s engraved ‘Love and Hugs, Meat’ it sums him up well. He was so funny. And gentle. And warm to everyone. A sweet soul. RIP Meat Loaf."

Adam Lambert, who reprised Meat Loaf's Rocky Horror Picture Show character, Eddie, in Fox's 2016 reimagining, shared a pic with the late rocker, writing, "A gentle hearted powerhouse rock star forever and ever. You were so kind. Your music will always be iconic. I’m sure you’re singing concerts in the great beyond. Rest In Peace sir. #MeatLoafRIP #Meatloaf."
RIP Meat Loaf, 74. One of rock music’s all-time great characters whose seminal iconic album Bat Out Of Hell is one of the biggest-selling records in history. A wondrously talented, flamboyant, funny, outrageous and rebellious chameleon. Sad news. pic.twitter.com/J0UNQgGahn
I am shocked & saddened by the sudden death of Meat Loaf. He was, as you might imagine, a larger than life character with a voice & stage presence to match & is one of those rare people who truly was a one off talent and personality. Rest In Peace
My dear friend, Meat Loaf, has passed away. I just heard the sad news this morning. He was my golf buddy and great soundboard for me in our talks from sports to politics. We just talked a few months ago. RIP
