Stephen Fry lead the tributes to the larger-than-life entertainer with a tweet: “I hope paradise is as you remember it from the dashboard light, Meat Loaf. Had a fun time performing a sketch with him on Saturday Live way back in the last century. He had the quality of being simultaneously frightening and cuddly which rare and rather wonderful.”

Cher, who once performed a duet of ‘Dead Ringer’ with Meat Loaf, paid tribute as well, noting how sorry she was for his “family, friends and fans.”

Piers Morgan called Meat Loaf “one of rock music’s all-time great characters”.

“RIP Meat Loaf, 74,” he tweeted. “One of rock music’s all-time great characters whose seminal iconic album Bat Out Of Hell is one of the biggest-selling records in history. A wondrously talented, flamboyant, funny, outrageous and rebellious chameleon. Sad news.”
