Veteran rocker Meat Loaf has resolved a dispute with songwriter Jim Steinman over trademark rights to "Bat Out of Hell," dropping a multimillion-dollar lawsuit over the title of the best-selling 1977 album. "It resolved itself very quickly because neither one of us wanted to argue," Meat Loaf told Reuters in an interview on Monday at an event to promote "Bat out of Hell III: The Monster is Loose," set for release on October 31."There’s a mutual love and respect there," he said."We’re not going to have a knock-down brawl. We just have too much history," Meat Loaf said, speaking fondly of the man who produced the original album that shot the portly Texan to stardom after his breakout appearance in the cult film "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."
Now if only they would work togther again, I would be a happy camper. Jim Steinman is my favorite lyricist and Meat is a rock g-d!
