MEAT LOAF’s HEALTH WOES…  

He said in 2016 ‘I’ve fallen three storeys from a balcony, I’ve had 18 concussions, I’ve rolled a car into a river, I was hit in the head by a shot put, a plane I was in crash-landed when the front landing gear wouldn’t come down…’ 

Add to that breaking his leg when he fell from the stage, developing vocal cysts ‘that left blood shooting from my mouth’ and a heart attack. 

That year, he fell during a concert in Edmonton, Canada and required medical attention – he later blamed his ill health on dehydration 

In 2011, Meat Loaf collapsed during a Pittsburgh gig.

In 2003, he collapsed once again while on stage at Wembley Arena in London and was once again taken to hospital, where he was given heart surgery. 

The star had surgery to treat Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, a defect of the heart that causes an irregular heartbeat 

The I’d Do Anything For Love hitmaker has been beset by onstage medical issues in recent years and now wears hearing aids and walks with a limp following knee replacement surgery. 

In 2016, he fell during a concert in Edmonton, Canada and required medical attention – he later blamed his ill health on dehydration. 

That same year, he discussed the many near-death experiences he has suffered in his lifetime. 

He told Daily Mail’s Event: ‘I’ve fallen three storeys from a balcony, I’ve had 18 concussions, I’ve rolled a car into a river, I was hit in the head by a shot put, a plane I was in crash-landed when the front landing gear wouldn’t come down…’

But no doubt his latest fall is unlikely to set him back for long, as he says his motto is: ‘Never quit.’
