“Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight,” the statement read. “We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man … From his heart to your souls … don’t ever stop rocking!”

The rocker’s daughter Amanda Aday told People that she and sister Pearl Aday rushed to Nashville after learning that their father’s health “was declining very rapidly, more rapidly than expected.”

“As soon as we could, we just went to his bedside at the hospital and just sat with him and held his hand,” Aday told the outlet, recalling her father as a “complex man with a lot of passion, who wore his heart on his sleeve,” and someone with a colorful personality – the kind of person to throw in an expletive before saying “I love you,” she said. 

“Growing up, when we were little, he always said he never wanted to be hip,” she added. “Pearl and I would want a new pair of shoes or something, whatever was in trend, fashion-wise or whatever, and he’d always say, ‘Don’t be trendy. Don’t be hip. Be cool, because cool is always.’ And that was him.”
