Legendary guitarist Steve Vai had some great things to say when asked by VH1's Classic Radio Report about his recent collaboration on Meat Loaf's Hang Cool Teddy Bear.
“Well I had contributed to Meat’s tracks in the past and we’ve known each other, so I’m no stranger. And I got the call and as soon as I got the call I was like, yes, I’m there. And the track started playing and I listened to it and I just started playing. It was very cool. It worked out great.”
Vai went on to describe what he thinks of Meat Loaf.
Consequence of Sound: Meat Loaf has forged a genre of music that very few people can be fit into. He has a style 100% his own, and when you hear someone playing a similar song, you immediately know that they were listening to a lot of Meat Loaf at one time. It’s big, it’s theatrical, it’s bombastic, and it’s filled to the brim with testosterone, sweat, and rock.
