Jim Steinman –
Composer, lyricist, Loaf maker.
November 1, 1947 – April 19, 2021.
Aged 73 years.
Most recognized for: Jim was the brains behind some of the biggest piano-driven heartbreak anthems on 80’s radio. Air Supply’s “Making Love Out of Nothing At All,” Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” & “Holding Out for a Hero,” and pretty much every song that Meat Loaf ever sang first came through this guy’s fingers. But after some kidney trouble in Connecticut, the world can rest assured that there will be no “Bat Out of Hell 4.”
