Meat Loaf – the legendary rock star died on 20th January at the age of 74. His cause of death was not revealed by the family but it is known that he had been suffering from various health diseases over the past years.

It is not a secret that the “bat out of hell” rock star strongly opposed vaccine and mask mandates.

Now Howard Stern has urged the family of Meat Loaf to speak up about the covid-19 mandates and vaccines.

“Poor Meat Loaf got sucked into some weird f—ing cult,” the 68-year-old said on his SiriusXM radio show.

“And somehow [he] really believed that – he made a statement, ‘I’d rather die a free man than take that vaccine.’ And now he’s dead!” Stern shared. “I wish the family would come forward and say, ‘Ya know, when Meat Loaf was laying there in the hospital and he couldn’t breathe, he said, ‘I made a mistake. I should have taken the vaccine.’ Like all these anti-vaxxers, they all say, ‘I made a mistake.

The late star’s family and reps did not respond to these comments made by Howard Stern as they still try to combat the grief of passing away of their very near and dear.

Meat Loaf’s wife Deborah Aday was grief-stricken after the death of her husband and she posted a statement that her spouse was surrounded by his family and close friends when he died.

“The grief I feel over the loss of my husband is gut-wrenching,” she said in a statement. “I was lying close to Michael when he took his last breath and my sadness is beyond words. I’ve always called him by his given name because I didn’t see him as ‘Meat.’ I feel much gratitude for the outpouring of love I have received from around the world.”

“He meant so much to so many people, and it gave me the joy to be able to share him with the world,” Aday continued. “As his wife, I also want everyone to know how much he meant to me as a husband.”

Meat Loaf had openly opposed the ideology of masking during the pandemic.

 “I’m sorry, I understood stopping life for a little while, but they cannot continue to stop life because of politics,” said Meat Loaf. “And right now they’re stopping because of politics. And on CNN last night, it finally came out that the masks we’re all wearing are useless. But I’ve known that for six months. They don’t do anything. They don’t stop you from getting COVID. They’re just a nuisance and make your nose itch and make it so you can’t breathe.”

“The only good masks are N95,” he continued. “But we got one and it was so badly made, the straps were so short, they would go on a child. So we had to go on the airplane with the paper masks and then on the way back, we got a Nazi: ‘Get your mask on now!’ They’re power mad now.”… if I die, I die, but I’m not going to be controlled,” he added.
