Meat Loaf’s last TV stint was on a ghost-hunting show after he claimed he spoke to spirits


Meat Loaf’s last TV appearance was on a Tennessee-based ghost hunting show.

The iconic Bat Out of Hell singer died with his family by his side at the age of 74 on Thursday, January 20, with the news breaking on Friday.

His agent Michael Greene announced the news on social media with a statement that read: “Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side.

“Daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends have been with him for the past 24 hours.

“His incredible career has spanned 6 decades which has seen him sell over 100 million albums worldwide and star in over 65 films including Fight Club, Focus, Rocky Horror Picture Show and Wayne’s World.

The episode is set to air next month

“We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all the love and support we are going through this time of grief at losing such an inspiring artist and a beautiful man.

“We appreciate your understanding of our need for privacy at this time. From her heart to your souls…never stop swaying!”

But alongside his legendary music career, Meat Loaf was known for his appearances in films such as Fight Club, The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Wayne’s World.

The singer claimed to have seen and spoken with spirits

And he hasn’t given up on his screen career later in life either, as he’s teamed up with a gang of American Ghostbusters for an episode that will air in February 2022.

The episode, titled “The Haunted House on the Hill”, will see The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) team up with Meat Loaf to investigate a haunted farmhouse located in Tennessee.

Its official synopsis reads, “Rumours of terrifying activity have plagued the property for decades, but the new owners want to reassure the community that their home is free of dangerous entities.”

The star died at 74

This isn’t the first time Meat Loaf has teamed up with the Ghost Hunters team, as he also joined them in 2009 for an episode named after his biggest hit Bat Out of Hell, which saw them heading to a haunted private island in Thousand Islands, New York.

The star told Shortlist in 2012 that he regularly speaks to paranormal entities, admitting: “I believe there’s something about when you die because there are ghosts. I’ve seen them, I’ve been around them. Some are just energy left behind, and some are intelligent.

“I’ve had conversations with them using a K2 counter, which allows them to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’.”

In a chilling statement made in 2011, Meat Loaf admitted he wanted to die on stage, admitting: “I go on stage like it’s the last thing I’d do. And that’s what I’ve always said. – if I go out, I go out on stage.”
