Still popular fare, Meat Loaf is Buffalo-bound

Rock star Meat Loaf has been a busy man: He recently released a live version of his 1977 breakout album, "Bat Out of Hell," recorded with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra; he's working on a second sequel to that album; and he's currently on tour, stopping at Six Flags Darien Lake Performing Arts Center at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. But he took the time to catch up with journalists in a conference call to discuss everything from his film career to his health secrets to his poker prowess.
Q: How did you do in "Celebrity Poker Showdown" last night?

A: At practice, I did great. I was killing everybody and I knew it was going to happen. I couldn't get any cards. I had nothing. . . . (The pros say) you could bluff your way without any cards and I'm going, "No, you can't, because these guys are too stupid to bluff." I tried to bluff a guy and he had a pair of threes and he stayed.

Q: Do you have any upcoming acting projects?

A: I believe so, but you know what, until the deal is done, you can't ever talk about it. (That's a) superstition.

Q: What kind of music do you listen to?

A: Oh, I don't know. I listen to everything just to see what they're all doing. I really do. I listen from, you know, to 50 Cent to Faith Hill. Because I want to know what everybody's doing, I just want to hear it.

Q: You've been busy touring and acting. What do you do to keep up your health?

A: Well, I've got a gym in my house and I look at it. It's a very nice little gym and it's - it looks great. I mean I'm not, you know, I'm not pumping iron, by any stretch of the imagination.

Q: How do you stay motivated to put on such high-energy shows night after night?

A: I think it's part of being a professional. . . . You have to be physically focused in, ready to do a show. And you've got to care about your audience. And I care more about the audience than anything, and you can ask the band.

Q: What would you like your audience to take away from your shows?

A: When our audience is leaving and they're singing the song and they're going, "Hoo, yeah!" you know, and they're excited, that says to me, "OK, I delivered and I brought them to where they want to go." I hope they leave happy. I hope that they're exhausted because I am, I, you know, I hope that they feel that what they paid for, they got.


Meat Loaf plays at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Six Flags Darien Lake Performing Arts Center. Tickets are 19 to $45 reserved, $15 lawn (box office, Ticketmaster.com).

50 cent makes some amazing music. I think that the whole D12 family that eminem has put together are all brilliant masterminds, who really do create some amazing work. I learned a long time ago that just because you do not understand or appreciate a certain style or genre of music does not give you the right to slag off it. There are certain types of country music that I just cannot stand; yet, I know good and well that some of the songs/artists/songwriters are just brilliant standouts!
