Celebrities took to social media to remember rock icon Meat Loaf Friday, a day after the death of the legendary singer and actor.
“What a voice. What a bigger than life presence,” Jon Bon Jovi wrote on Twitter above a photo of the two musicians. “Love ya meat.”
The “Bat out of Hell” crooner, who was reportedly “seriously ill” with Covid-19 in the days leading up to his death, passed away at age 74 and was remembered for his larger-than-life voice and persona.
“I’ve got some amazing memories with that man,” Dee Snider of Twisted Sister wrote. He called Meat Loaf “a true force of nature.”
Lenny Kravitz wrote simply, “You were a sweetheart of a guy.”
Actor Lou Diamond Phillips tweeted a heartfelt tribute, calling Meatloaf “as exuberant, passionate, and flamboyant as his music. The voice of an angel and a rock icon. We had some times, my friend. I’ll miss you.”
“He once turned me upside down in a Chinese Restaurant in St Johns Wood,” recalled musician Boy George
“The vaults of heaven will be ringing with Rock,” tweeted composer Andrew Lloyd Weber.
Reba McEntire, who once hosted the American Music Awards alongside Meat Loaf, recalled him as “such a kind soul.” “Our loss, heaven’s gain,” she added. “Rest in peace, my friend.”
