Default Meat fell off the stage and broke his collar bone

It happened this weekend in Texas. This is whatís on they posted on Facebook.

ĎAs everyone knows Meat Loaf fell today. We wanted to keep you updated as soon as we knew something. We just found out that the hospital is keeping him overnight for observation. He will not be able to return on Sunday but he has already confirmed that he will be back in 2020! He's a trooper and we are praying a speedy recovery!í

Poor guy, finally now that his back is getting a bit better, this happenes. Hopefully it didnít damage his back. 😕

From what I read the stage end and the curtain were all black and there were no markings. Hoping Meat is OK. I saw him fall off stage once during his first last tour (CHSIB era) and he got back up and started on the line he left off on and amazingly sounded even better after the fall. He is one tough customer.

Oh god poor Meat, what's weird is that I sent him a message on Sunday to see how he was. Don't know why, just had a feeling I should.

All the very best for a full and speedy recovery, and I hope it doesn't set the back recovery back.

Oh no. Has to be worse than a collarbone. Hoping he didn't re-injure his back after all he has been through to get better.

He didn't further injure his back thank goodness. Latest update is that he is still in hospital but hoping to get home in the next few days. Right now he and Deborah are taking the situation on a day by day basis and hope he recovers as soon as possible from his shoulder injury.

I've sent her a link to a card on-line for those who'd like to leave a message.

She will show him the card to let him see how many fans he has willing him on, and she everyone for letting him know he's so much in your thoughts :)

He's moved to a local hospital and is having therapy for his shoulder, probably for another week or so .. restless and bored I'm sure, but hanging in and slowly making progress Forward is the only gear he uses

Lol he does sound good, puts me in mind of the old Rocky Horror promo tapes that Richard OBrien did. Nice job!

UPDATE: He's finally home!! Deborah picked him up on Saturday, and he's starting therapy with his regular therapist this week. Heís moving his arm a little better but heís still got a few months of therapy ahead of him.

In the meantime there's a new fake page on FB .. 0fficial Meat Loaf, and it's one of the contemptibles who set one up last year to try and scam money off fans. If you're on FB you could help by reporting the fraudulent page to. If enough of us do we might get the page taken down. Use this link:

Facebook is doing an atrocious job stopping spam, illegal sales and hate on their own platform. I've reported several things over the last year and every time it (perhaps automated bots I guess) claimed that the stuff was within its rules. This literally included selling bootleg Disney materials from pages that were set up the day before and using the Facebook ad platform and several individuals bullying others on a BBC news facebook page. When I contacted the BBC they removed the posts immediately whilst Facebook was quite happy to let it all slide. I get the impression the report feature never really reaches an actual living person.

Yes to all of that .. I'm just hoping that an avalanche of reports of one page might just trigger a reaction beyond some algorithm.

This latest scam page has been set up by the same people who set one up last year, messaging fans as Meat Loaf and asking for money. I strung them along for a week last year to try and get bank details the real Meat could pass to the police. I made contact with this latest page via message, and he remembered my name and the precise amount I'd promised last year!

All I'm getting when I click that link, is a this page is unavailable message, so either I'm somehow blocked to it, or, Miracles happen and it's been taken down already!

For 3 days now fans have been reporting the page in droves, and also posting on it that it was a fake, a scam etc. I don't know whether we caused a peak that FB's algorithm spotted and alerted a human being, or the guy himself realised he was on to a loser so took it down himself .. but early this morning the page became an ex-parrot Gives me hope that in future if another scammer thinks he can get away with it we can harness a bit of fan power again
