Meat Loaf Goes Vegan But Changing Name to Veg Loaf? No, He Won’t Do That
Two out of three ain't bad.
Hey, all meat products, he wanted to eat you, he needed to eat you, but now, there ain't no way he's ever gonna consume you, but don't feel sad.
Meat Loaf, born Michael Lee Aday, has kicked the carnivore's caboose out of his diet and is joining in on Veganuary where people go meatless in their diet, for at least this month. But Meat's all in.
He's given up meat completely like a bat out of hell, but by the paradise by the dashboard light, he says even cutting out the meat once a week in your diet can make a big difference in your health and the health of the planet. As far as a name change? He'd do anything for love, but he won't do that.
I loved him in 1999's Fight Club, and even older school types know in 1975 he played Eddie in the movie version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I had no idea how huge, er, popular, the dude still is in the UK, much more so than in the U.S.A., he's sold over 80 million albums worldwide...that is staggering. Meat Loaf is one of the top selling artists EVER.
Meat Loaf is a nickname his football coach in high school gave him becasuse of his weight. Meat Loaf Soul was Meat's first band and during the recording of the band's first song, he hit a note so high he blew a fuse on the recording console. He was immediately offered three recording contracts promptly turning down every one of them.
