Thanks to Bolivar and Talmadge,

I now have Eric Clapton and Meat Loaf going through my brain. An odd combination, but it's working. Thanks fellas!

Could we possibly get Clapton to play guitar on "Bat Out of Hell"? Or maybe Meat Loaf contributing a vocal to "Bell Bottom Blues"?

OOOH! I'd pay money to see them try to work together!

I see your Clapton/Loaf combo and raise you the illustrious Jim Steinman.

How about "Wonderful Tonight" as heard through the Steinman producer's eye...

Remind me sometime to tell y'all about Air Supply and The Stripper.... heh heh heh.

Didn't Steinman also write "Total Eclipse of the Heart" (which led a couple of critics to ponder, "So what's a partial eclipse of the heart?")

To answer Nettiemac - yes, Steinman wrote "Total Eclipse of the Heart", which caused Bonnie Tyler to have yet another throat operation. Should have been called "Total Eclipse of the Throat".

I may be wrong, but I think Steinman also wrote a song called "Read 'Em and Weep", which was a hit for (dare I say it?) Barry Manilow.

I knew that Steinman would do anything for love, but I hope he didn't do that!

Air Supply and The Stripper? Sounds like a combination guaranteed to kill. Put it next to Bing Crosby and David Bowie next Christmas.

And I think it not a bit coincidental that Barry Manilow/Fairy Manilow/Barely Manenough's initials are: B.M.
