You know those songs that have changed the world and made their way into the hearts of everyone who hears them?
There’s something special about the people who sing those songs.
Today’s guest on The School of Greatness is one of those people.
Meat Loaf is a multi-platinum singer who has been making music for over 30 years – as well as acting in cult hit films like Rocky Horror Picture Show and Fight Club.
He is truly his own kind of artist – which is what makes him so great.
And he just came out with a new album.
I loved hearing Meat explain how he has navigated the entertainment industry for decades while staying true to his unique (and loud) voice and style.
He is truly an example of an artist who loves his work so much that he becomes the work.
I’m excited to share this peek into the mind of the artist Meat Loaf in Episode 386.
