In Los Angeles, Aday formed his first band, Meat Loaf Soul, after a nickname coined by his football coach because of his weight.He was immediately offered three recording contracts, all of which he turned down.Meat Loaf Soul’s first gig was in Huntington Beach in 1968 at the Cave, opening for Van Morrison’s band Them and Question Mark and the Mysterians. While performing their cover of the Howlin’ Wolf song “Smokestack Lightning”, the smoke machine they used made too much smoke and the club had to be cleared out. Later, the band was the opening act at Cal State Northridge for Renaissance, Taj Mahal, and Janis Joplin. The band then underwent several changes of lead guitarists, changing the name of the band each time. The new names included Popcorn Blizzard and Floating Circus.
With the publicity generated from Hair, Meat Loaf was invited to record with Motown. They suggested he do a duet with Shaun “Stoney” Murphy, who had performed with him in Hair, to which he agreed. The Motown production team in charge of the album wrote and selected the songs while Meat Loaf and Stoney came in only to lay down their vocals. The album, titled Stoney & Meatloaf was completed in the summer of 1971 and released in September of that year. A single released in advance of the album, “What You See Is What You Get”, reached number thirty-six on the Best Selling Soul Singles chartand seventy-one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
On June 27, 2008, Meat Loaf returned to the stage in Plymouth, England, for the first show of The Casa de Carne Tour alongside his longtime duet partner Patti Russo, who debuted one of her own original songs during his show.The tour continued through July and August with twenty dates throughout England, Ireland, Germany, Portugal, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Six U.S. showdates were also added for October and December 200.
In May 2009, Meat Loaf began work on the album Hang Cool Teddy Bear in the studio with Green Day’s American Idiot album producer Rob Cavallo, working with such writers as Justin Hawkins, Rick Brantley, Ollie Wride, Tommy Henriksen and Jon Bon Jovi.Though not much was revealed officially to begin with, Meat Loaf gave away some information through videos he posted on Twitter and YouTube. The album is based on the story of a fictional soldier, whose “story” furnishes the theme. During his concert of March 19, 2011, held outside of Vancouver, B.C., Canada, Meat Loaf explained that he had wanted an insert put with the album to explain what the premise of the album was, but he said there were too many “bleeping” record label politics and it did not get done.
In May 2011, Meat Loaf confirmed in a video on his YouTube account, that he was in the process of recording a new album called Hell in a Handbasket.According to Meat Loaf, the album was recorded and produced by Paul Crook; Dough McKean did the mix with input from Rob Cavallo. The album features songs called “All of Me”, “Blue Sky”, “The Giving Tree”, “Mad, Mad World”, and a duet with Patti Russo called “Our Love and Our Souls”.On July 6, the album had to be finished for the record company. They released it in October 2011 for Australia and New Zealand, and February 2012 for the rest of the world.Meat Loaf said, “It’s really the first record I’ve ever put out about how I feel about life and how I feel about what’s going on at the moment.”
