Anthrax’s Scott Ian pays tribute to late father-in-law Meat Loaf: “I love you Meat”


While many rock and pop stars were sad about the loss of Bat Out of Hell singer Meat Loaf, who died last week at age 74, one rock artist in particular truly is in mourning: Scott Ian of Anthrax, who’s married to Meat Loaf’s daughter Pearl Aday.

On Sunday, Ian took to Instagram to remember his father-in-law, writing, “There are so many stories to tell, and I know they will all be told over time. For now, what I know is that Meat’s legacy will live on through his family – Pearl, Amanda and Revel.” 

Amanda is Pearl’s sister; Revel is Scott and Pearl’s son.

“Their forever love for their father/grandfather (Papa Meat) outweighs the heaviness of their hearts,” Ian continued. “Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of love, we feel it. I love you Meat.”

Ian also posted a photo of Meat Loaf posing with his daughters, as well as an adorable photo of the legendary vocalist holding Revel.
