ABC News’ Phil Lipof speaks to Jem Aswad, deputy music editor at Variety, about the lives and legacies of singer Meat Loaf and comedian Louie Anderson.
Meat Loaf, the 74-year-old rock icon whose 1977 debut “Bat Out of Hell” became one of the best-selling albums of all time, died Thursday after a serious illness, with his family by his side. He passed away in a hospital outside Nashville, where he lived. His wife Deborah and two daughters were at his side. In a statement, the family said their “hearts are broken.” Meat Loaf also appeared in classic movies, including “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Wayne’s World” and “Fight Club.”
At first glance, Ethan Edmondson and Kendyll McCarrick are two typical tweens, making their way through junior high. But both Ethan and Kendyll say they have psychic abilities, that allow them to see to the spirits of the dead and sense things that are not visible to the typical eye. Kendyll told Inside Edition Digital, “It’s like you’re in between worlds.” Their putative powers landed them spots on the A&E reality series, “Psychic Kids.”
If it seems like you’ve heard a lot of death notices about really big celebrities this year, that’s because you have. It’s not just your imagination; 2022 has been filled with the deaths of celebrities. Maybe it’s made you feel sad to see the likes of Betty White, John Madden and Sidney Poitier pass on, and you’re not alone. In just the first three weeks of 2022, icons like Bob Saget, Ronnie Spector, and Louie Anderson have all passed away, one after the other.
Bob Saget’s grieving widow, Kelly Rizzo, is speaking out for the first time since he was found dead on Jan. 9. In an interview with “Good Morning America,” she shared their final conversation after a stand-up gig. “He was just on his way home or back to his hotel and just was telling me what a wonderful show he had and it was so amazing and he was happy and just loving what he did. He just said he felt like he was 26 again,” Rizzo said. Social media has also been flooded with tributes to Saget.
