Writer and producer Jim Steinman should be inducted in the Non-Performers category.

Best known in conjunction with his enormously successful collaborations with singer Meat Loaf, producer and composer Jim Steinman rose to the top of the pop charts on the strength of his distinctively operatic artistic vision. A native of New York City trained as a classical pianist, he first surfaced during the mid-1970s with the off-Broadway musical More Than You Deserve; among its cast was Houston-born Marvin Lee Aday, a.k.a. Meat Loaf. The two men reunited a few years later for a tour with the National Lampoon Road Show, after which Steinman began composing a musical update of the Peter Pan story titled Never Land. Many of the songs he wrote for the project were then instead incorporated into Meat Loaf's 1978 LP Bat Out of Hell, a teen rock opera which spawned three Top 40 singles — "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," and "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth" — on its way to becoming one of the best-selling albums of the decade.

Where Meat Loaf is concerned, Objects In Any Mirror May Appear Closer Than They Are.

Steinman alson wrote Barry Manilow's hit from late '83/early '84 "Read 'Em and Weep."

Steinman should be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a non-performer. He qualifies in that he is a songwriter and producer who has had a major influence on the development of rock and roll.

Yeah - but he almost ruined the Hysteria album by Def Leppard.

Since when do non-performers have pages on this site? I must have missed something

Quincy Jones, Jim Steinman, Bernie Taupin are exceptions. They are on here because they also made albums themselves as performers, but they will be inducted in the non-performers category.

What do you mean "non performer"? I was witness to Jim's performing talents when he played on Meat's first European tour. He is a great performer and composer. Induct him.

NON-PERFORMERS FOR INDUCTION

Just for the record, I'd Lie For You (And That's The Truth) is not a Steinman composition but a very well wriiten imitation of Steinman's style by Dianne Warren.
