Jim Steinman

Best known in conjunction with his enormously successful collaborations with singer Meat Loaf, producer and composer Jim Steinman rose to the top of the pop charts on the strength of his distinctively operatic artistic vision. A native of New York City trained as a classical pianist, he first surfaced during the mid-'70s with the off-Broadway musical More Than You Deserve; among its cast was Houston-born Marvin Lee Aday, aka Meat Loaf. The two men reunited a few years later for a tour with the National Lampoon Road Show, after which Steinman began composing a musical update of the Peter Pan story titled Never Land. Many of the songs he wrote for the project were then instead incorporated into Meat Loaf's 1978 LP Bat Out of Hell, a teen rock opera that spawned three Top 40 singles -- "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," and "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth" -- on its way to becoming one of the best-selling albums of the decade.

A Bat Out of Hell sequel was planned, but in 1981 Steinman issued his own solo debut, Bad for Good. After Meat Loaf released his own follow-up, Dead Ringer, rumors began flying, and it was reported that the singer had been unable to record the songs that ultimately comprised the Steinman album due to physical and emotional problems. Eventually, the producer filed suit against Meat Loaf and his label, Epic, and he soon began working with Bonnie Tyler, writing and producing her massive 1983 hit "Total Eclipse of the Heart." A year later, Steinman collaborated with Barbra Streisand on her Emotion LP, and also worked with Billy Squier on Signs of Life. However, he kept a relatively low profile throughout the remainder of the decade, raising more than a few eyebrows in 1987 when he agreed to produce the album Floodland for British goth rockers Sisters of Mercy; a sequel, Vision Thing, followed in 1990. Meanwhile, Original Sin, ostensibly Steinman's second solo effort but issued under the name of the one-off project Pandora's Box, was released in 1989. Finally, in 1993, Steinman and Meat Loaf reunited for the best-selling Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

Jim doesn't get enough credit for the Bat albums
LUV jim steinman
Steinman and Loaf! Great combination. Steinman writes mini operas and Meat Loaf has that amazing theatricalit y . IMHO, Steinman is one of the most under-apprec i a t e d songwriters of the rock genre. Check out is work in the film Streets of Fire. His show stoppers make that film.
Meat might have HAD a better voice, but Jim wrote ALL the words and music for all those songs that take your breath away, bring tears to your eyes, and keep you fighting to stay young (not to mention in love!) And don't forget his work with Bonnie Tyler, Celine Dion, Barbara Streisand, Air Supply, and more. He's also a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame as of 2012.

I think Steinman without Meat Loaf works better than Meat Loaf without Steinman. Jim is not as good a singer for sure but he sure isn't bad.
Jim Steinman is the only modern songwriter who can bring me near tears. Jim and Meat Loaf are perfect partners - they are never better than when they work together.
He has created such a great sound in such a small corner of the industry. I hope that one day, someone will bring back the huge sound that I love so much.

I LUV'd Bad For Good! I was 15, and having played my older brother's copy of Bat Out of Hell to death, I was excited to get my hands on something new. Campy? Theatrical,s u r e it was, but it was very exiting to me, and eventually inspired me to pursue music. YEA JS! What? No mention of his Vampire musical?
