‘Meat Loaf Wasn’t Just The Performer But The Boss,’ Says Daughters On Death Anniversary

On Meat Loaf’s death anniversary, his daughters Amanda and Pearl Aday paid tributes to their father through an emotional note on Instagram through Pearl’s husband, Anthrax frontman Scott Ian. The sisters also honored the late singer’s memory with the announcement of a short film.

“A message from Meat Loaf’s daughters, Amanda Aday and Pearl Aday,” stated Scott before sharing their message. “We are sending our deepest thanks and admiration out to Dad’s worldwide family of friends and fans for your continuous outpouring of love and support. Today marks one year since we had to say goodbye to our dad for the final time.”

The note continued, “To honor Dad and you, his global community of friends and fans, we want to share with you a short film we put together with a great friend and brilliant filmmaker, Jack Bennett. This is a celebration of Dad’s life and legacy, an acknowledgment of the man he was on and off the stage. Not just the performer but the boss, the mentor, the friend, the husband, the godfather, the grandpa’ Papa Meat,’ and the father.”

They paid homage to their dad by recalling their time together. The sisters added, “The dad who gave us love and generosity, who taught us and teased us. The dad who laughed and cried with us, who taught us how to catch a ball and ride a bicycle, who celebrated our victories and picked us up when we fell down. The man who was a big kid himself. The man who taught us tenacity and the value of respect. Our Dad. The man we miss every day.”

So, it was only fair to celebrate and honor Meat Loaf’s memory with a film, sharing intimate footage from his professional and personal life. Reflecting further on the short film, Amanda and Pearl’s note said, “We are so grateful to share this retrospective with career highlights and private moments from our personal archives that haven’t been shared before.”

The message encouraged every fan of the late performer to check out the movie. The sister wrapped up their statement, lastly saying, “We thank you for celebrating Dad, and we thank you for loving him with us. Please follow the link and watch. We hope you cry with us and laugh with us, and afterwards, we hope you blast your favorite Meat Loaf songs and sing along as loud as you can. He’s definitely listening.”
