Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Very sad news.  I was a big fan.  My brother and I had the original Bat Out of Hell album in '77. 

I remember when he was the musical guest on SNL.  He was introduced by Christopher Lee (?):  "I would like you to Meet....Loaf."
