Meat and Me

Meat Loaf

Tuesday, I drove to Oshawa for the Meat Loaf concert. He's promoting his newest CD (Hang Cool Teddy Bear). The CD rocks. I went a little crazy and paid for the "Meat and Greet" package. It consists of a tshirt, numbered poster, signed copy of the CD and an opportunity to meet Meat and have a photo taken. He is an incredibly polite and appreciative person. He loves his fans and always acknowledges that he is nothing without his fans.

The concert was wonderful. I was dead centre, second row. He sure puts on a great theatrical event. At 62, he has lost some of the voice that made his ballads famous, but he can still rock the heavier songs. As always, he and Karla Devito did a great skit for Paradise by the Dashboard Lights.
