The celeb toll continues. Died at only74. Along with writer Jim Steinman created the whole new genre of opera rock. His later stuff for me was a little too camp and OOT but Bat Out of Hell remains a guilty pleasure-and, of course, he will also be remembered as Eddie from Rocky Horror Show. Saw a documentary on him a few years ago and he had had his demons but, by all accounts, a nice fella who has passed too young.
