Description

To Hell and Back is the title of the autobiography of rock singer, Meat Loaf. It was later made into a television movie, called Meat Loaf: To Hell and Back, with W. Earl Brown in the title role.

To Hell and Back is the title of the autobiography of rock singer, Meat Loaf. To Hell and Back was co-written by David Dalton and was publicized as the true story of Meat Loaf's life and career from young boy in Texas to the time of the release of his massive comeback album, Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell in 1993.

Meat Loaf has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and appeared in films such as The Rocky Horror Picture . Meat is honest about his life and regrets he’s had throughout the book.

Meat Loaf has sold more than 50 million records worldwide and appeared in films such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Mighty, Crazy in Alabama, and The Fight Club. David Dalton is the award-winning author of biographies on such pop icons as James Dean, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison. His most recent book is El Sid: Saint Vicious. He talks about losing his mom when he was in California and no one knew where he was. He talks about Rocky Horror at length as well as getting Bat I off the ground.

Meat Loaf's bizarre and spectacular life story is scarcely credible. After surviving an abusive childhood, during which he was almost murdered by his alcoholic father, he starred in one of the biggest stage and film musicals ever, then went on to record the third best-selling album of all time. To Hell and Back is the story of a man who ran away from a cruel home life at 17 and starred in the legendary Rocky Horror Picture Show before turning to rock-'n'roll

To Hell and Back: The Meat Loaf Story. Directed by. Jim McBride. The book continues the oft-written claim that Meat Loaf was born in 1947. However, Meat has often stated that his drivers licence and Social Security information both state that he was born in 1951. Although born Marvin Lee Aday, Meat Loaf changed his name legally to Michael Lee Aday. Neither full name appears in the book.

Meat Loaf was rock music's unlikeliest success: a 300-pound white artist signed to Motown records.  He boostrapped his way out of hell, fleeing an abusive past, overcoming the scorn and skepticism of nearly everyone, and--through raw determination--he beat all odds and conquered the world.

Twice.

To Hell and Back is his story.

I found out about Meat Loaf’s autobiography only recently. It’s out of print and not available as an e-book. If you are a fan, figure out how to get a copy!

So I took a chance and ordered a 19 year old book on Amazon through a 3rd party. My concern was I’m really allergic to dust. Well I think I got a sinus infection because I was reading this book but it was worth it!

This book is made up of 4 parts with small chapters (each with a title) in each part. There is also tons of pictures and artwork. The book starts with Meat’s childhood and goes through Bat Out of Hell II.

Meat is honest about his life and regrets he’s had throughout the book. He talks about losing his mom when he was in California and no one knew where he was. He talks about Rocky Horror at length as well as getting Bat I off the ground. He goes into a lot of detail about his tumultuous friendship with Jim Steinman, and Jim’s crazy genius and creative process.

He also tells the story of how he met his first wife Leslie. They married less than a month after they met. They were together over 20 years.

Meat goes into detail about his struggles with drugs and his mental health issues. Being someone who suffers from anxiety and panic attacks as well as social anxiety I really related to some of what he’s been through. He’s also definitely an introvert and you learn how he works around that being in a profession that puts you around people all the time.

Definitely a five star book! For my younger friends or ones who are sensitive to such this book is full of sex, drugs, and rock and roll! In addition there’s some pretty coarse language.

I adored this book. It's very telling. I love how personal the look into his life is. A must read for any fan. The pictures are fun, personal, random and rare. Not what you'd normally see if you just threw meatloaf into google... well not that you'd even see pictures of him if you threw that into google.. just pictures of dinner I guess.
All the music fans in my life have asked to borrow it. He is such a talented individual who has been through so much. A great read that makes a great gift for any music lover!
Aside from the great work in the book is very easy on the eye as well. Being as Meatloaf himself is so dramatic I think the bright red on the cover is very fitting. The clean red, black and white on the jacket is very classic, just like the man! It's a standout on my bookshelf for sure!
I really enjoyed getting to learn so much more about a musician I already cared so much for!

I finished this book in two days and it was <er> good..I was a little taken back by the inconsistencies between this and the VH-1 Meat Loaf movie..Being that the book has Meats own words, I would believe the books version, but the differences between the two are amazing..
The scarfs origin, moms death, his older child was from his wifes previous marraige, the reconcilliation with Steinman, are to name just a few of the differences.
Overall it was a good quick read. I have to agree with a previous reviewer that having no descriptions on the pictures was lame.
Also, on some of the better stories, Meat didnt go into the detail that the story deserved. Each story is at tops five pages long (mostly one or two page stories). The story was over before I was able to get a clear mental image of what was going on.
Bottom line if you are interested in Meat Loaf, this is a good book. Dont expect too many intricate details however. Also if you've seen the VH-1 movie, try to forget it's details while reading this book because it wil just confuse you...

I have been a Meat Loaf fan since the 70's, and I was so happy to get to read his book. Its an amazing story that any Meat fan will enjoy. Sometimes it seems a bit disjointed but since he has had 17 concussions I guess that is to be expected. Love his book, love his music, love the man, and would love to read what has been going on with him since this one left off.

Like other reviewers said, this reads like Meatloaf is sitting at a table with you just telling stories of his life. Some are funny, some are very sad. I think another reviewer said he wished the photos had captions. I agree with him-captions would have been helpful. Meatloaf was good friends with John Belushi. H didn't say anything about how Belushi's death affected him, which I thought was an odd omission. But, all in all, it was a very enjoyable, interesting read.

This is an honest look at the larger than life Meat Loaf's life up until the late 1990's. It's told like he is just talking to you and is an easy read. A number of great personal photos are also included. Any fan of Meat Loaf will love this book and I think it could make a fan of those who don't know this incredibly talented performer.

This book is just as passionate as Meat Loaf's songs. I simply couldn't put it down, once I started reading it.

Highly recommended if you are his fan, or a fan of good storytelling, because his life is the perfect example of the pearls and perils of a life in rock and roll, while trying not to lose sanity and to keep a family. Pure gold!

Thanks Meat for all your songs and for this book! Your story has inspired me to keep fighting for what I believe in.
Laugh out loud funny. Very enjoyable read. Wish it was a lot longer. Finished and wanted more.
