Meat Loaf has revealed that he has seen -- and talked to -- ghosts several times in his life. "I've seen them, I've been around them," he explains. "Some are just energy left behind, and some are intelligent."

Speaking to Spinner, Loaf explains that these visits helped him realize there is in fact an afterlife, and that he's talked to some of the spirits using something called a K2 Meter, which apparently lets them answer "yes" or "no." Presumably, to questions like, "Has Meat Loaf lost his marbles?"

Recounting one of his spooky encounters, Meat Loaf explains, "When we were making 'Bat Out of Hell' I saw a blonde girl in a white dress. I went downstairs and told the guys, 'There's a groupie up on the balcony,' and they go, 'How would she get up there?' Everybody went up and no one was there." (Cue spooky "whhoooo-eeeeeeee--oooooooooo" theremin music.)

In more down-to-earth Meat Loaf news, the singer will be releasing a new album, 'Hell in a Handbasket,' on March 13. It's the first of three albums he plans to release to commemorate his 40 year long career.
