Meat Loaf Would Rather Die Onstage Than ‘Slow Down’ His Performing Schedule

Meat Loaf is one dedicated entertainer. The 63-year-old rocker’s touring schedule is busier than ever, and that is just the way he wants it to be from here on out, even if it results in his death. If he expired on stage, doing what he loves, Meat would die a happy man (and musician.)

“You know, [I’ll] take the stage as if it’s the last thing I’m ever going to do,” he recently told CNN’s Piers Morgan [quotes via W.E.N.N.]. “That’s how I perform every night.”

Just last month, Meat Loaf passed out on two different occasions, both while performing concerts, which concerned many of his faithful followers. The singer eased their minds when he posted a video message online to assure his fans that he is fine health-wise, stating he was taking in some air from an oxygen tank to control his asthma issues.

Meat Loaf says that while the scare has taught him to “slow down a little bit,” not performing a show for health issues is just not an option for him.

“I go out on the stage as if it’s the last thing I’ll ever do,” Meat Loaf says. “And that’s what I’ve always said … if I’m going out, I’m going out on stage.”

Meat Loaf is far from his death bed. In fact, he is busier than ever. The singer is currently in the midst of working on three full-length studio albums, including ‘Hell in a Handbasket’ slated for release in February, which he calls his “most personal record” yet, as well as a Christmas album, which he hopes will see the light of day by the 2012 holiday season.
