While Meat Loaf’s family mourns his death, which occurred on January 20 at the age of 74, Howard Stern comes to bang his fist on the table. The American host implores his relatives to speak out in favor of the vaccine against Covid-19. He spoke after the publication of an article from TMZ announcing that the interpreter of Bat Out of Hell was “seriously ill with Covid” before his death.
Information that comes when the entourage has not revealed the causes of the death of the man who had become a fervent defender of the cause of antivax and anti-containment. “I hugged people in the middle of the Covid. I understood why life had to stop for a while, but we cannot continue to stop everything for political reasons and, at the moment, everything is stopped for political reasons, “said Meat Loaf , last August, at Pittsburg Post-Gazette.
The star of Rocky Horror Picture Show also believed that the population was “controlled”. ” Not me. If I die, I die, but I will not be under control,” he added. Meat Loaf had also supported Eric Clapton and Van Morrison when they released their anti-lockdown title, Stand & Deliver. “A song of great interest”, he wrote on his Facebook account, adding: “Listen and learn”.
For Howard Stern, the singer was “sucked into some sort of weird cult” and died of it. “He said, ‘I’d rather die a free man than take this vaccine.’ And now he’s dead! (…) I want the family to come out of their silence to say that when Meat Loaf was lying on his hospital bed unable to breathe, he said “I made a mistake. I should have had my vaccine”. Like all those antivax who say ‘I made a mistake,’” the host said on his SiriusXM radio show.
Meat Loaf’s family has yet to comment or reveal the cause of the artist’s death.
