Meat Loaf won the Hero Award at Wednesday night's Q Awards.
After he triumphed at last night’s prestigious Q Awards, the legendary rocker Meat Loaf gave an update as to his health a few months after he collapsed onstage during a concert in Canada.
The 69 year old icon, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, was performing a concert in Edmonton, Alberta on June 16th this year when the scary incident happened. Speaking to the Press Association as he arrived at last night’s Q Awards, he gave an update as to his current medical condition, revealing that he had recently undergone some serious surgery on his back.

American rock icon Meat Loaf has collapsed on stage while in the middle of a performance with his band.
Video footage shows the 68 year old singer falling to the floor during a rendition of ‘I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)’, appearing to briefly lose consciousness and then being helped to his feet by his bandmates at a gig in Edmonton, Alberta on Thursday night (June 16th).
Local reports said that the Northern Jubilee Auditorium was evacuated shortly after the medical emergency, and that police officers were called to the scene as well as ambulances at 9:37pm local time.

Brad and Janet are a young, innocent couple who find themselves stranded in a storm in the middle of nowhere. They come across an eerie castle where they decide to go and ask for a phone, but are instead greeted by some unusual looking staff, a large party of eccentrically dressed guests and a formidable host wearing women's lingerie named Dr. Frank N. Furter. He's not just any transvestite, however, Frank is a pioneering scientist who has created a human life named Rocky, but he's also the most dangerous and insane man they could've come across - prone to jealous rages and unwilling to treat anyone like anything other than his playthings. When the couple are forced to spend the night, it's all they can do to resist the seductive charms of their host, and avoid running into his sadistic servants.

By mashing up so many genres, filmmaker Jerome Sable has made a thoroughly entertaining romp that's impossible to categorise. It may not work fully as a horror thriller, comedy, musical, coming-of-age drama or spoof, but it's hugely entertaining on all of those levels. Yes, this is a movie that scares us one minute, then has us laughing at some surprisingly sophisticated humour the next.
It's been 10 years since Kylie (Minnie Driver) was killed on the night her star-making show opened on Broadway. Now her children Camilla and Buddy (Allie MacDonald and Douglas Smith) are working at Center Stage performing arts camp, run by their guardian Roger (Meat Loaf). And this summer's big show will be a revival of their mother's fateful musical, The Haunting of the Opera, staged as Japanese kabuki by self-proclaimed genius director Artie (Brandon Uranovitz). Camilla is determined to get the lead role, sucking up to a cute crew member (Kent Nolan) who has a crush on her and then engaging in a battle with Liz (Melanie Leishman), her rival for the part. Meanwhile, a mysterious figure is creeping around the camp, and pretty much everyone has a motive for murder.
The film is skilfully shot and edited, with straight-faced performances heightening the subtle comedy that flows through every scene. Some moments are pure pastiche, while the songs merrily blur the lines between the movie we're watching and the stage musical these theatre brats are putting on. And the cast is terrific. MacDonald and Smith engagingly anchor the central plot, while Meat Loaf has a ball as the all-singing ex-producer who wants to get back to Broadway. The rest of the ensemble is like the cast of Glee, representing a variety of types who are willing to break into another bouncy song at the sound of a single note. The killer, by contrast, prefers death metal.

Group have re-scheduled date on final ever Meat Loaf European tour
Meat Loaf has already insisted that this current European Tour will be his last, owing to age and health issues, but it was his band’s condition that was holding him back at the weekend after the veteran singer was forced to take to Facebook and announce that they were having to postpone Sunday night’s Nottingham show (April 14, 2013).
"NOTTINGHAM: We are very sorry to announce that tonight's performance has had to be postponed due to medical reasons afflicting several members of the band. (sic)” Meat wrote. He added: "WE WILL BE BACK THOUGH AND WILL BE BACK MONDAY MAY 20th 2013 (sic). Please retain your original tickets, If for any reason you cannot attend, please contact the point of sale from tomorrow morning Monday 15 April (sic). Meat and everyone in the band and crew send love and apologies and thanks you for understanding. MLH xxx (sic)."
Earlier this month, Meat Loaf told Reuters "This is really it ... I just don't want to travel anymore," going on to compare himself to fellow rock veteran Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones – just about to headline Glastonbury Festival on the 50th anniversary of their formation – and saying "I outweigh (Mick) Jagger by about 100 pounds (45 kgs) and that counts for something. He hasn't seen the wear and tear … "Over the years, a lot of stones and a lot of arrows have been flying my way. You expect that."

Meat Loaf is in the UK leg of his 'Last At Bat' tour after announcing his retirement due to decades of health issues.
Meat Loaf commenced his final tour of the UK on Friday (April 5th 2013) during his Last At Bat tour after announcing his retirement.
The 'Bat Out of Hell' star, whose real name is Michael Lee Aday (formerly Marvin), has been suffering health problems for a number of years which may have been a key factor in his retirement plans. After all, 2012 saw him undergo the first of two knee operations which not only affected his gait, but also restricted his general on-stage movement. His vocal cords after also seen some strain over the years with the star having to cancel a tour in 2007 to recover from a cyst that developed on them. He told the Guardian, 'I've had 18 concussions. My balance is off. I've had a knee replacement. I've got to have the other one replaced. It's just the travel. It takes it out of you. I want to concentrate more on acting. That's where I started and that's where I'll finish. This time, they're not going to rope me back in.'
The tour concerts are split into two halves with the first half being dedicated to his biggest hits such as 'I'd Do Anything For Love' and the second half being dedicated to his 'Bat Out of Hell' record. 'It's the greatest love song ever written', he told the crowd during a Glasgow show according to the Telegraph.

Veteran performer hasn't the health to travel anymore
His fans might not want to admit it, but Meat Loaf has insisted that his forthcoming tour will be his final one, after a catalogue of health issues that have seen the ageing singer realise that his time is on the wane.
Meat Loaf’s still very much active in the studio – he has a new album coming out, Brave And Crazy – but he said that he wasn’t in the shape to get out and tour anymore. "This is really it ... I just don't want to travel anymore," he told Reuters TV. Comparing himself to fellow rock veteran Mick Jagger of The Rolling Stones – just about to headline Glastonbury Festival on the 50th anniversary of their formation – he said "I outweigh (Mick) Jagger by about 100 pounds (45 kgs) and that counts for something. He hasn't seen the wear and tear."
The performer did quell any serious doubts about his health, but said this was simply a matter of time catching up with him. "When your name is on the marque, you either get the glory or you get the hits," he commented. "Over the years, a lot of stones and a lot of arrows have been flying my way. You expect that." Meat’s European tour starts this Friday in Newcastle and continues until Dublin in the middle of May.

On Thursday night (Oct 25) during a rally for Mitt Romney held in Defiance, Ohio, Meat Loaf came like a bat out of Hell to announce himself as the latest high profile star to show their support for Romney at the upcoming US presidential elections, Entertainment Weekly reports.
The singer/actor opened up his pro-Romney statement by stating: "There has storm clouds come over the United States. There is thunderstorms over Europe. There are hail storms -- and I mean major hail storms -- in the Middle East. There are storms brewing through China, through Asia, through everywhere."
He followed up his broken-English plagued weather report with a few big ups for the Presidential hopeful, before wailing out some bars of 'America the Beautiful.' It still doesn't top Clint Eastwood talking to an empty chair for an unprecedented amount of time though.

Another nasty slap in the face has come about for many as Meat Loaf has unexpectedly come out as a Mitt Romney supporter in a recent campaign rally leading up to election day; yep, none other than one of the biggest voices (literally) of rock.
It shouldn't come as much of a surprise coming from the writer of 'Paradise By The Dashboard Light' which unambiguously describes the contempt one man has for his wife but whose traditional values prevent him from breaking apart from her. Woman hating and conservative. yep, it's got Romney written all over it. The 65-year-old rocker broke the news at a rally in Defiance, Ohio and, according to news.sky.com, opened his support speech by insisting that he's never been into politics before now but decided to vote this year because 'in 2012, this is the most important election in the history of the United States'. 'There are storm clouds coming over the United States, there are thunderstorms over Europe, there are hailstorms, and I mean major hailstorms, in the Middle East', he went on in a rather hyperbolic manner. 'I want you to know that there is one man who will stand tall in this country and fight the storm and bring the United States back to what it should be: Governor Mitt Romney.'
If that wasn't bad enough, he later broke out into a rendition of 'If It Ain't Broke Break It', the lyrics of which certainly do not inspire much confidence amongst voters who would rather the country remain not 'broke.'
Anna (Michelle Williams) is the vacuous, borderline-underage girlfriend of mobster Billy (Meat Loaf), and the deleterious effect of watching her criminal lover murder a restaurateur (Louis Zorich) - coupled with the recent death of her G.I. brother Dan (Wendell Pierce), who perished after post-WWII electro-shock treatments administered at the request of their nasty parents - has left the girl a psychological mess. Fortunately, frightening Dr. Harold Ashton (Bill Raymond) has just arrived in town promoting a newfangled cure-all that strikes Anna's easily swayed fancy: the transorbital lobotomy, which the neurologist claims will eradicate everything from anxiety and insomnia to alcoholism. The "ice-pick lobotomy" - a popular procedure apparently based on historical fact, and so nicknamed because of the primary instrument used - is immediately appealing to Anna, who sees it as the easiest method of coping with her traumatic life. Will she go through with the dangerous operation, thus choosing to forget, rather than confront, her painful memories? Will the town's new resident Tom (Tim Guinee), an honest Korean War vet being blackmailed by Billy, succeed in convincing Anna that lobotomies are a less-than-reasonable therapeutic solution to one's problems? Will Ledes create something coherent out of his symbolism-saturated story?
