Rocker Meat Loaf is refusing to slow down his touring schedule - because he'd rather die on stage than quit performing.
The Bat Out Of Hell hitmaker sparked concern for his health last month (Jul11) after seemingly passing out at two concerts.
Meat Loaf has since played down the reports and posted a video message online to assure fans he's fine, claiming he was merely taking in some air from an oxygen tank to control his asthma.
The singer admits that although the incidents have taught him to "slow down a little bit", he would rather "go out" on stage than not perform.
He tells CNN's Piers Morgan, "You know, I take the stage as if it's the last thing I'm ever going to do and that's how I perform every night... It's probably (taught me) to slow down a little bit...
"I go out on the stage as if it's the last thing I'll ever do. And that's what I've always said - If I'm going out, I'm going out on stage."
