ZUM TOD DES US-AMERIKANISCHEN KOMPONISTEN UND MUSIKPRODUZENTEN JIM STEINMAN

ZUM TOD DES US-AMERIKANISCHEN KOMPONISTEN UND MUSIKPRODUZENTEN JIM STEINMAN

21.04.2021 Der am 1. November 1947 in New York City geborene US-amerikanische Rock- und Musical-Komponist, Texter und Musikproduzent Jim Steinman (Bild) ist am 19. April 2021 in Danbury (Connecticut) gestorben. Er schrieb unter anderem einen Grossteil der Songs für Meat Loaf sowie Bonnie Tylers "Total Eclipse of the Heart" und mehrere Musicals. Steinman komponierte die Musik zu "Tanz der Vampire" und schrieb den Text zu Andrew Lloyd Webbers "Whistle Down the Wind". Seine Songs wurden ausserdem etwa von Barbra Streisand, Céline Dion, Billy Squier und Barry Manilow gesungen. Er prägte den Wagnerian Rock, wie er seinen Musikstil in Anlehnung an Richard Wagner selbst nannte.*

‘Bat Out of Hell’ Star Lena Hall on the Genius of Jim Steinman, a Writer Who Saw No Distinction Between Stage Music and Rock

The Tony winner talks about why Steinman's music was born for the stage, even if it took its time in getting there — and why nothing could ever beat singing "It's All Coming Back to Me Now."

The rocker Meat Loaf’s interpretations of Mr. Steinman’s songs became one of the biggest-selling albums of all time.

Steinman was nominated for his first Grammy for his work with Tyler on the "Footloose" musical song "Holding Out for a Hero." He garnered two more nominations in 1993 for song of the year and best rock song with "I'd Do Anything For Love." In 1996, he won a Grammy for album of the year for his writing and production work on Dion's "Falling Into You.“

Jim Steinman obituary

His own website described him as “The Lord of Excess”, and the Los Angeles Times dubbed him “the Richard Wagner of Rock and Roll”. Jim Steinman, who has died of kidney failure aged 73, made a spectacular career of being bigger and more bombastic than the rest, and his achievement in masterminding Meat Loaf’s album Bat Out of Hell will guarantee his immortality.

Adam Sweeting

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/apr/22/steinman-obituary-bat-out-of-hell

“Jim wrote and produced some of the most iconic rock songs of all time and I was massively privileged to have been given some of them by him. I made two albums with Jim, despite my record company initially thinking he wouldn’t want to work with me, thankfully they were wrong, and can say without any doubt that Jim was a true genius.“

Er wagte Kopfsprünge in den Kitsch

Er verwandelte die Unsicherheiten eines weißen Vorstädters in Konzeptrockmärchen für Meat Loaf und exzessive Balladen für Bonnie Tyler: Der Musikproduzent Jim Steinman inszenierte Vierminuten-Opern fürs Autoradio.

Der Mann für den Autounfall-Song

Der Komponist Jim Steinman war der geradezu offizielle Spezialist für die wirklich großen Entwürfe. Ein Pop-Wagner, der Rock 'n' Roll und Musiktheater vereinte.
