So long story short, a year ago I was working with Meat Loaf, yes THE Meat Loaf, on his new record. I met with him several times to discuss the vision of the record and wrote songs for the project. We had many conversations about his concept and how we could achieve it. Time went on and none of the songs I had written ended up on the project. These things happen. Fast forward to last week. Meat wants me to work with him again for the next album. We met up at Warner/Chappell (my publishing company) to catch up and talk over his vision forÂ theÂ new release. As he greets me, he hands me a copy of “Hang CoolÂ Teddy Bear”, the first record we were working on. He points outÂ the very last entry of the “thank you” page (see attached picture). I couldn’t believe it! I mean…this is Meat Loaf! He’s a legend. I used to walk around listening to hisÂ cassette tapesÂ as a kid. The “Bat Out Of Hell” himself giving me a shout out! I drove around for the next hour blaring and singing “I Would DoÂ Anything For Love” as loud as I could. You think I’m kidding but I’m not. I’m not normally a show off but I just had to share this one. Too cool. Thanks Meat, you’re a classy guy.
