It's like people call me a rock star or this or that. And I go, 'Don't call me that. I don't think of myself in those terms. If you have to call me anything, call me a chameleon.
I never fit in. I am a true alternative. And I love being the outcast. That's my role in life, to be an outcast.

There's no explanation for success. Success just comes out of life.
As most people know, I am a vampire, so I have no reflection. Every day, I paste a picture of someone else on the mirror.

My life's far too complicated to be summed up in one song. It would take 20 just to represent one single day.
Just ask anybody who is getting old - everything starts hurting. For me, it's my shoulders, thumbs, knees and feet.
I'm asthmatic. I was a lot bigger back then, and I still get winded on stage today. But I've learned how to pace it now. I have musical breaks in there.
You know, people think I named myself Meat Loaf, even though I didn't. And they think anyone who would name himself Meat Loaf couldn't have an IQ higher than four.
