You’ve probably heard the news by now iconic singer and actor Meat Loaf passed away this morning at the age of 74. You know his songs Paradise by the Dashboard light and I’d Do Anything For Love… He also acted in Fight Club as the character “Bob” and in Rocky Horror Picture Show. What you might not know is that he also had some deep roots here in Connecticut.
He lived in Redding, CT from 1989 and 1998. His daughter went to elementary school school in Stamford. He spent some of his time while living here coaching softball. This is really cool. He actually drafted the first girl to The Stamford Little League team where he was known as “Coach Meat”.
RIP, Coach Meat. We will miss you here in CT.
