|I think Jim tends to bullshit on occasions with some weird stories (but that\'s what you get by hanging around with Meat Loaf for so long).|
However, he seems to have released a lot of genuine info on his blog, about the Bat show, and I am very optimistic that it will happen in 2008.
The only doubtful point is that it does sound like a very expensive project, and the whole thing could financially im-lode at any stage, between now & curtain up.
Hopefully not, and I do hope Jim writes at least one BRAND NEW UNHEARD song for the show; \'Paradise Lost\' may fit the bill, if it is indeed a follow-up to \'...Dashboard Light\'.
