Legendary singer and actor Meat Loaf has died at age 74.

Early this morning (January 21st), his family confirmed his death in a statement. The family did not give a cause of death, but TMZ has reported that Meat Loaf died from COVID-19.

“Our hearts are broken to announce the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight surrounded by his wife Deborah, daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends,” the statement reads. “His amazing career spanned 6 decades that saw him sell over 100 million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including Fight Club, Focus, Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Wayne’s World.”

CNN and other outlets confirmed Meat Loaf’s death via his agent, but still no cause of death has been revealed.

Bat Out of Hell remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time,” the family’s statement continues. “We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man.”

Meat Loaf, born Marvin Lee Aday, rose to fame with his theatrical form of rock ‘n’ roll. In 1977, he teamed up with Jim Steinman for his 1977 debut album, Bat Out of Hell. That record has gone on to sell a whopping 43 million copies worldwide.

“We thank you for your understanding of our need for privacy at this time,” the statement concludes. “From his heart to your souls…don’t ever stop rocking!”

Rest In Peace, Meat Loaf.
