NEW YORK (AP) Meat Loaf, the rock superstar loved by millions for his ``Bat Out of Hell'' album and for such theatrical, dark-hearted anthems as ``Paradise By the Dashboard Light'' and ``Two Out of Three Ain't Bad,'' has died at age 74. A family statement provided by his longtime agent says the singer born Marvin Lee Aday died Thursday night. ``Bat Out of Hell,'' his mega-selling collaboration with songwriter Jim Steinman, came out in 1977 and became one of the bestselling records in history. He was also known for his role in ``The Rocky Horror Picture Show'' and the 1993 single ``I'd Do Anything for Love.'' Meat Loaf lived in Redding in the 1990s, and later in Fairfield and Stamford. He was also a girls baseball coach in Stamford, Westport and Redding.
