Meat Loaf  :(
Oh no. Always enjoy singing along to a bit of Meat Loaf with my mum.
We never really die.

Meat Loaf at first recieved no royalties from Bat Out Of Hell, so missed out on a fortune. He was a very mercurial figure, his talent seemed to burst out of him, and he became an actor, appearing in Fight Club. Sad news about one of the most charismatic figures Rock music ever produced-'Gone when the morning comes' how appropriate.

The penny finally drops - I see what you did there!

Seems like Meat Loaf has been around forever.  My first regular comic was Nutty, where one of the School Belles expressed a liking for Meat Loaf, to which her mate responds 'You would like him, 'cos he's fat, like you.'  Different times.

Meat Loaf was one of those few artists who managed to be so good and memorable in their works that they became known to everyone, regardless of musical taste or age. Even my Mum mentioned him passing, and she's 79 and exclusively listens to Richard Clayderman and Pan-Pipes!

RIP Meat Loaf, you utter legend x

I have never really been into music of any kind, but even I had a copy of Bat out of Hell. My old mate Bill used to blast it out of his narrowboat while chugging along the canal at 4mph.

A name that might get missed in all the news about Meatloaf; actor Hardy Kruger has died aged 93.
Helluva career with some major films on his CV;
The One That Got Away, Barry Lyndon and The Wild Geese.
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!

He was also in Flight of the Phoenix and in one of the greatest ww2 films ever - A Bridge Too Far. I didn't know he was alive...until moments ago.

He was a fantastic talent and the designer for Luc Besson's Fifth Element. A significant loss to the Comic book Industry.

One of the all-time great script writer's and Panelists, Barry Cryer, has died. Comedy just lost a legend.

That is a fecking shame. (Was going to say crying shame then spotted the completely inappropriate and lame pun.) He'll truly be missed.

Brian Augustyn aged 67. Comicbook writer and editor. He worked on so many things and apparently brought though so many talents as well. I know him best for a magnificent run on the Wally West Flash series alongside Mark Waid. One of my favourite runs and just plain good comics.

By all accounts a decent human being as well. Rest in peace.
