Beefy rocker Meat Loaf is dead at the age of 74.
The Dallas native passed away Thursday night, reportedly with his wife by his side.
A family statement was provided by his longtime agent Michael Greene.

“Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight,” the statement said. “We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man… From his heart to your souls…don’t ever stop rocking!”

No cause or other details were given, but Meat Loaf had numerous health scares over the years.
Born Marvin Lee Aday in September of 1947, he exploded onto the music scene in 1977 with the release of his album “Bat Out of Hell,” which included the hit single “Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad.”
He went on to win in a Grammy for Best Solo Rock Performance for “I’d Do Anything for Love.”
Meat Loaf was one of the best-selling artists of all time, with sales of more than 80-million records.
Throughout his career he also appeared in more than 50 movies like Wayne’s World and Fight Club and TV shows.
