Songwriting legend Jim Steinman has now passed away at the age of 73

Steinman, a Grammy winner, is best known for his collaborations with Meat Loaf, Celine Dion, Bonnie Tyler, Def Leppard, and many more.

As The New York Post reports:

Steinman’s “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” and other songs made up the bulk of Meat Loaf’s 1977 blockbuster record “Bat Out of Hell,” which went on to become one of the best selling albums of all time. The pair continued to work closely for volumes II and III of the rock music series.

The karaoke mainstay “Total Eclipse of the Heart” helped launch Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler into legendary status with their 1983 song.

The enigmatic songwriter was known for drawing inspiration from the arts. His song “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now,” most famously performed by French-Canadian icon Celine Dion in 1996, was said to be inspired by Emily Brontë’s “Wuthering Heights.” Critics hailed Dion’s recording as a “highlight” of her English-language music career undoubtedly paving the way for her global, decade-spanning success.

Steinman later received his first and only Grammy in 1997 for writing on Celine Dion’s album “Falling Into You.”

Not a very informative article. When did he die? Today? If so what a way to go out 4/20. Maybe the writer of this article started partying too early.
