You can hear him to your hearts content if you buy these reissued vinyls in February

Probably more video and pics of him at conventions, and/or appearances at the musical if it actually happens in the USA. Apart from that, the only musical stuff I can see him doing with his back the way it is would be stuff he can sing while sitting and not getting too intensely into it - maybe a different type of music?

I really hope he does more conventions - I saw him at London back in July and he seemed to thrive on it; the interaction with the fans, the love he was receiving, and being on stage (for his excellent talk) in front of an enraptured audience again. I know he was still in pain then, but I hope it did him well. It would be great to see the same again this year, if nothing else.

I would not expect much except continuing to recover from his back issues and enjoying a well-earned rest. Of course knowing how he is he may be bouncing (extremely gently) off the walls wanting to do something related to performing. Maybe some convention appearances should his back permit him to. I know at one time he was looking for the best versions of some of his oldest songs but not sure what for. I don't see a huge amount of buyers for it to be honest.
I would love to see someway, somehow, if all of the rights issues could be sorted that his Live VH1 shows could be issued on the best quality format it would work on.

And Bat II is still only crammed onto one record? That's ... deflating.

WttN is listed as a single LP as well, where the original pressing had 2.

Apparently, Hits Out of Hell is being reissues on vinyl as well: https://www.bol.com/nl/p/hits-out-of...0000098804427/

I wonder if these reissues will actually come to fruition, and where the masters are taken from?

Personally, I'd like to see him do a concert where he just sits and sings! All the great ballads: FCOL, HCW, TOOT etc, etc. No theatrics, just Meat and his voice. It would be VERY different, but also very brilliant, in my humble opinion.

Good to see you here again Lisa. Yes that would be wonderful. I hope we will get to see that too. Phil collins has done something similar, and rather successfully I might add. He has drop-foot and can't stand for long or without a cane. As long as singing doesn't hurt Meat anymore, he should be able to do something like this. I'd just worry about him being able to get into physical shape. How do you work out when your back is so sore? Hopefully his physio covers that though!

Or, as it's otherwise known, Storytellers.

Funnily enough, Meat was actually considering a show like this a couple of years back, if memory serves.

Yeah I remember that too, but I kind of disagree on simplifying it that much. His back won't allow him to do another Storytellers type show. This would have to be an entirely different show that accommodates his physical disabilities and his likely-inability to exercise. Probably a slower pace, pitched-down songs, only singing what he can from a sitting position, and setting up the show so that it does not make his back condition worse - but still allow it to heal. But he could totally still tell stories, and use the same stage presence and ability to hold his audience to deliver a wonderfully immersive show to his fans. I think we would all like to see Meat do his thing in a capacity that is comfortable for him but still allows him to perform well. The question is - When Meat warms up and becomes Meat Loaf, can he contain the monster enough to stay in a chair and still let the character be Meat Loaf?

If all this is possible - then I think we definitely agree that we're basically talking about "Old Man Storytellers"

Well, yeah, I pretty much thought that was a given I wasn't talking about an identical reproduction of the storytellers show from 1998. Just the core concept.

Good - and somewhat surprising - news. Both the Bat II and WTTN vinyl re-releases are double disc. Fingers crossed that it's a good master from an analogue source, and I'll be very happy with that indeed. Coming Feb.
