Grammy-winning singer Meat Loaf has died at age 74 on Jan 20.

The news of the singer's death was confirmed on his Facebook page by his family.

"Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight with his wife Deborah by his side

"Daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends have been with him throughout the last 24 hours," the message read.

Born Marvin Lee Aday, Meat Loaf started his career in the late 1960s. He has released more than 10 albums and sold over 100 million albums worldwide in his six-decade career.

Meat Loaf's debut album Bat Out Of Hell, released in 1977, remains one of the top 10 best-selling albums of all-time. He worked with Jim Steinman on that album and both remained frequent collaborators throughout the singer's career. Steinman passed away last year in April.

Meat Loaf's 1993 mega-hit I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That) won him a Grammy award for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance.

He has also starred in over 65 movies and TV shows including The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Fight Club.

“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!” Meat Loaf’s family said in a statement.

The cause of death is not being released.
