12Despite being known as a singer, Meat Loaf has only sung in two films - The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) and Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny (2006). The reason for this is because he wanted to be taken seriously as an actor and not get typecast into singing roles.

15When he first started rehearsals for the stage version of The Rocky Horror Show neither he nor the rest of the cast were aware of the sexual content of the play. It was only relatively late into the rehearsal stage that they found out, when Tim Curry (whom they had never met, he had been brought over from the London production) turned up on stage in full Frank-N-Furter costume and make-up singing "Sweet Transvestite." It was then that they realized what the show was really about. Meat Loaf walked out of the rehearsals and refused to do the show, but was talked into doing one performance to see how it went. When he saw how much the audience loved the show he agreed to stay on for the entire run.
16In addition to songs from his own albums, his concerts usually include the song "Hot Patootie", which he sang as Eddie in The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).

#Quote
1In the early 1980s, I got into a war with my management - they just kept on suing me and I lost everything. So I had to go out on tour to make sure the electricity stayed on.
2It's like people call me a rock star or this or that. And I go, 'Don't call me that. I don't think of myself in those terms. If you have to call me anything, call me a chameleon.
3There was a band in Australia named Midnight Oil, and they were a very, very political, and they literally hit you over the head with a hammer. U2 sometimes can hit you over the head with a rubber hammer.
4You know, people think I named myself Meat Loaf, even though I didn't. And they think anyone who would name himself Meat Loaf couldn't have an IQ higher than four.
5When I do film, I really take on roles and I take on characters.
6When your name is on the marquee, you either get the glory or you get the hits.
7A lot of actors, they know the camera's there, and if somebody moves around or makes noise or whatever then they get all distracted, but I pretty much lock in. You can't distract me too much.
8For the past 32 years, I've done nothing outside the entertainment business. I've had some real highs and some real lows, but I love the work so much that I never once thought of quitting.
9I'm asthmatic. I was a lot bigger back then, and I still get winded on stage today. But I've learned how to pace it now. I have musical breaks in there.
10Just ask anybody who is getting old - everything starts hurting. For me, it's my shoulders, thumbs, knees and feet.
11My gigs are built on improvisation: I go out there and I'm like the Energizer bunny.
12My life's far too complicated to be summed up in one song. It would take 20 just to represent one single day.
13The day that I ever become hip... please shoot me and put me outta my misery!
14There's no explanation for success. Success just comes out of life.
15Rock n' Roll came from the slaves singing gospel in the fields. Their lives were hell and they used music to lift out of it, to take them away. That's what rock n' roll should do - take you to a better place.
16I never fit in. I am a true alternative. And I love being the outcast. That's my role in life, to be an outcast.
17As most people know, I am a vampire, so I have no reflection. Every day, I paste a picture of someone else on the mirror.
18'Hell in a Handbasket' is not dealing with the political nature of the country. It's dealing with the humanity and the compassion of the world.
19I'm an actor. I started as an actor. I started on Broadway doing 'Hair' and Shakespeare in the Park.
20Rock and roll is about getting free beer and getting laid.
21[asked in 2003 interview whether he was born in 1947 or 1951] 1951. I have it on my passport and driving license. [I said 1947 in my autobiography] because I just wanted to maintain a constant lie. I was born in 1951 but see what a great thing it is, because everybody asks me? And I can keep it up--I can tell you I was born in 1952. Names and ages piss me off. So I just continually lie.
