You do recall he's a wee-bit of a control freak, yes?
If ever there was a time to let the Meaty madness rage without interference, that would have been a good time.
Wuv, twue wuv, doesn't believe in convenience.
Meat needed a place to live during the Bad for Good debacle. Enter the beautiful beatnik single-mother who is the go-to gal for all the rock stars in residence at Woodstock. Leslie Edmonds cooked, cleaned, babysat, and pretty much did whatever grunt work would help her pay the bills, including showing the newcomers around so they could find a place to live. Eventually, she became an assistant studio manager. Yep, that still required a lot of grunt work.
Twenty-one days after they met, Meat married Leslie atop a snow-capped mountain with a doddering old priest who caught his robes on fire during the ceremony. Crepe arms raised, oblivious to the fire licking up his robes, the priest appeared very much like a fiery Bat Out of Hell. It's a good omen that will bond Meat and Leslie for twenty-odd years.
It takes longer than that for Meat Loaf to eventually release the song "Bad for Good" on
Bat Out of Hell III: The Monster is Loose.
