This is a crazy story. I never heard it before.
The second story he tells is pretty amusing.
Also, I am struck by how infirm Meatloaf appears to be in this clip, from only a year ago. Much has been made that he was “anti-vax” while purportedly dying from Covid. Watching this clip, I see a man that looks vulnerable to a lot of ailments, any number of which could do him in. He seemed older than his age.
