Meat Loaf Passes Out On Stage in Pittsburgh

Meat Loaf was in town for his tour on Thursday at the Trib Amphitheatre when four songs into his set he collapsed on stage after singing "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)."  Paramedics attended to 'Meat' as he was down for 10 minutes on a hot and humid Pittsburgh evening.  Fans were wondering if he had a heart attack and would possibly die on stage.  Meat Loaf was ok, publicist Maureen O'Connor said, "He hadn't been feeling well the past few days as his asthma had been bothering him."  Meat Loaf continued with his show and went right into one of his hits, "Paradise by the Dashboard Light."  Meat Loaf explained to the crowd why he passed out: “I f**king fainted.  I have asthma…I can’t breathe…and then…oh wait, I forgot…I got poked by a pin and bled half to death…and then I got slapped in the face and my tooth is loose.”

    His name was Robert Paulson. Not to make a joke, but I wonder if anyone started chanting that when he fell. "I Would Do Anything for Love" is a great video from the mid-90's as well.

  2. Did anyone else read the story on Deadspin recently about Meat Loaf being their softball coach. Awesome:
