Tribute: Meat Loaf at Party in the Paddock in Newbury
Rock legend Meat Loaf, who has died aged 74, rocked Newbury Racecourse when he came to party in the paddock.
American singer Meat Loaf, whose hits included Bat Out Of Hell and I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) died with his wife at his side, his family has announced.
The singer, whose real name was Michael Lee Aday, sold more than 100million albums worldwide and starred in 65 movies.
In August 2013 he visited Newbury Racecourse and entertained thousands of racegoers and music fans.
He made a joke of the typical rainy British summer, saying: “Just look at the lovely sunny weather we got. All we need is some sand and some deckchairs and we could get a good UK tan.”
He closed the show by firing Meat Loaf T-shirts into the crowd and concluded: “And you can just call me Meat. Thank you very, very much. Don’t you ever stop rockin’.”
