Instead of ascending like a bat out of hell the venerable Meat Loaf tumbled down during a performance in Pittsburgh, PA last night. Medics rushed to his aid and for a while it looked pretty scary and tense.
Here’s the clip as Loaf gets attended to by the professionals and an audience member catches it on his / her cell phone:
As he’s proven throughout his musical career and during his run on Celebrity Apprentice Meat is a gamer and this story has a hard-core happy ending. Not only was he okay but he got right back on his feet and finished the show. Later during a performance of his classic “Paradise By the Dashboard Light” he told the audience what happened:
“I f**king fainted. I have asthma … I can’t breathe … and then … oh wait, I forgot … I got poked by a pin and bled half to death … and then I got slapped in the face and my tooth is loose.”
You just can’t keep stiff Meat down folks!
