And he has some big names helping him out!

Meat Loaf is set to release Hang Cool Teddy Bear this May and the album is about "a mysterious military man." He describes:

"It's the story of a soldier. He's been in battle and he's lying face down on the ground. He can't move, but he turns his head and starts to see blood run across the ground, and so he thinks he's going to die.

"They always say you see your life flash backward when you're about to die. But his life flashes forward - into what possibly could happen. He sees what his life could be: the good and the bad.

"The songs are the different scenarios he finds himself in. It's not always the same time or the same place, but it's always the same woman. But I don't want to give too much away. I want people to work it out for themselves."

The album features songs written by Justin Hawkins, formerly of The Darkness, and Kara DioGuardi who even sings on the album!

Also appearing are Jack Black in the duet "Like a Rose" and Hugh Laurie will play the piano on "If I Can't Have You!"

Pretty star-studded — we guess everyone's a Meat Loaf fan!

    Badass indeed. Even with Gregory House MD on the Keys!!



  2. 2

    I'll check it out. Paradise By The Dashboard Light is one of the best songs ever. He might be a lot older but he kicks ass musically.

    I thought that was Elton! OMG! Tsk, tsk, Perez. What's wrong with you whacko boy? A few months ago, you bashed Kerry Katona, most of your readers never heard of her, and NOW the Daily Mail published brilliant photos' of her showing off her new figure. She is STUNNING! Where ARE they? You just stole the Charlotte Church weight loss photos, from the Daily Mail, so WHERE are Kerry's? She looks BEYOND smashing, and I think it's time you post "nice things" about people, after bashing them, when they get their ducks in a row. Kerry has had a HARD time of it. A husband who wants more and MORE, a mom to support, in addition to her lovely children. She's had weight issues, which you made a BIG production in putting her down. C'mon Perez, show your readers the NEW Kerry.
    She looks MUCH better now than she did in her Atomic Kitten days — she was beautiful back then, but moreso now. Bravo, Kerry!

    For those of you who aren't real familiar with Meatloaf, and in keeping with Re: Nelly_In_SJ – 's comment, here are a few lyrics for you: Will you make me some magic with your own two hands? Can you build an emerald city with these grains of sand? Can you give me something I can take home? The guy has some of the hottest lyrics going. Still.

  18. 18

    Wonder if the mysterious military man was shot with a Black Betty - Bam a Lam?



  19. 19

    I swore that was William Shatner.



  20. 20

    Love Meat Loaf. A great talent (but please dye the hair). And Hugh Laurie is no slouch in the music department either.



  21. 21

    I thought it was a picture of William Shatner!!!

    Thought this was William Shatner “ at 1st look!

    First of all, his super-special new album is a flop, even before its release. No one will buy a record with such a dumb title, no matter if it's good or not. Secondly, the reason he's attempting his amazing "comeback" is because he's another one of these idiots who made it big for a while, and then totally pissed away all his money, thinking he'd ride the wave forever. Wrong! Now he's desperate to pay his mortgage and medical insurance. One year from now, he'll be bankrupt and fat. How pitiful.



  25. 25

    Hey, this big, fat slob just reminded me of something: I have to go pinch a loaf right now! Ha ha, thanks buddy, I'll name it after you….



  26. 26

    Eh…who cares? He sucks!

    What a dumbass title.



  29. 29

    Two words: Jim Steinem



  30. 30

    Meat would be nothing but for the amazing talent of Jim Steinem



  31. 31

    Actually the pitiful thing is the Dr. octoidiot person who keeps commenting on Perez posts trying to be offensive and morose. It is so obvious that this is a miserable person, read all of their posts. All they do is attack the person posted on and use vulgar language to belittle them. Hell they even desecrate the dead (Corey Haim) At first I was offended and upset. But now there are obvious red flags that this is a person who has the need to make those with special needs feel bad.

    Meat Loaf sang on a Ted Nugent album back in the mid 70's. Without Meat Loaf, Ted Nugent would have never made it as far as he did. Meat Loaf hooked us with his solid vocals and made big impact on the music. Meat Loaf did just that first album of Nugent's and it paid off for both musicians.



  33. 33

    OK - I just double checked. Meat Loaf did not sing on Ted Nugents first album. It was the 70's. I was hallucinating. Blue windowpane.



  34. 34

    I've never heard any of his songs. ive only seen him in rocky horror and that was pretty bitchin…maybe ill check it out
