Patrick. Bat out of hell came out when I was 16, I wore out my next door neighbors 8 track copy, and several albums and cassettes of my own over the years . It still ranks up there on my top 10 album list. I never tire of it. As a Meatloaf fan, when it came to refinish my Stratocaster clone, the album covers of all 3 Bat out of Hell albums were copied, shrunk, applied to decal film then sealed under several coats of clear on the face of the guitar.Heard a song on the radio (Forever Autumn) I hadn't heard in nearly 40 years. So I'm listening again to the 1978 version of Jeff Wayne's Musical version of War of the Worlds. I had a copy in the day, but all my albums were lost 20 some years ago in a flood. As I'm listening, I remember the music.
Then in honor of the now late Jim Steinman, it will be "Bat Out of Hell" from Meatloaf.
Geeze, I'm getting old.
I hadn't hear of Jim's passing til now. We are slowly losing the greats of out youth, only to be replaced with "Yo, baby baby" Sad.
Just had to change my avatar in memory of Jim.
