Thus, the two spent a lot of time together, and for Cooper, whenever they met, there was always closeness there as they understood each other very well.
Alice Cooper’s words on his relationship with Meat Loaf:
“He was very theatrical, so that attracted me and those albums were musical. Steinman wrote all those really great theatrical pieces. I’ve always wanted to write with him, but I think it would have been like I was barging Meat Loaf. We toured with Meat Load, and he would go on stage.
He never let go with the audience; I used to love that. And then, he had the voice, monster voice. He was just so good. We did a movie together, and we did ‘Roadie’ together. Every time I would see him, there was a closeness there. I understood him, and I think he understood me and what we were doing.”
