Meat Loaf Makes One of His Final Appearances on Upcoming 'Ghost Hunters' Episode: 'We Were Blessed'
"In memory of our friend and fellow paranormal investigator. We were blessed to have spent one last investigation with you," Travel Channel, which streams Ghost Hunters , wrote of Meat Loaf
Meat Loaf spent the final months of his life doing what he loved with the people he adored.
Just four months before the "Bat Out of Hell" rocker died at age 74, he made one of his final television appearances on an upcoming episode of Ghost Hunters .
While some fans would be surprised to see Meat Loaf on the long-running series, the musician is actually no stranger to the paranormal.
In 2009, he joined the Ghost Hunters on an investigation, thanks in part to his longtime friendship with TAPS member Jason Hawes. Since then, Meat Loaf has worked with the TAPS team on multiple investigations.
The new episode, which is set to air on discovery+ on Feb. 12, follows Meat Loaf and the TAPS team as they investigate an old farmhouse in Tennessee, coined "The Haunted House on the Hill".
"Rumors of terrifying activity have plagued the property for decades, but the new owners want to reassure the community that their home doesn't harbor dangerous entities," discovery+ wrote in a press release of the episode, which was filmed in September 2021.
On Friday, Travel Channel, which is owned by Discovery, Inc., released a preview of the episode on their Facebook page .
In the minute-long clip, Hawes announced that the TAPS team — comprised of Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango and Shari DeBenedetti — "will have someone joining us" for their ghost investigation. He then revealed the mysterious guest as Meat Loaf, referring to the rocker and actor as "a good friend of mine."
"A lot of people don't realize with Meat Loaf that he's been investigating claims of the paranormal for a long time," Hawes said. "That's actually what sparked our friendship and we've been hanging out ever since."
Meat Loaf added, "I am so incredibly honored and thankful to Jason and the team for inviting me out again."
The clip continued on, showing segments of the group's spooky investigation, before it ended with a still image of Meat Loaf and the TAPS team. Beneath the photo, "In Memory of Our Friend Meat Loaf 1947-2022" was written across the screen.
Travel Channel also wrote in the caption of the video, "In memory of our friend and fellow paranormal investigator. We were blessed to have spent one last investigation with you."
Meat Loaf died on Jan. 21 , with his agent Michael Green confirming the sad news in a statement to PEOPLE.
"Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight surrounded by his wife Deborah, daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends," Green said.
"His amazing career spanned 6 decades that saw him sell over 100 million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including Fight Club , Focus , Rocky Horror Picture Show and Wayne's World . 'Bat Out of Hell' remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time," Green continued. "We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man. We thank you for understanding of our need for privacy at this time. From his heart to your souls... don't ever stop rocking!"
Meat Loaf's Ghost Hunters episode begins streaming on discovery+ on Saturday, Feb. 12.

Watch One of Meat Loaf’s Final Appearances on Upcoming ‘Ghost Hunters’ Episode
In one of his last appearances, rock legend Meat Loaf joined the Ghost Hunters team to investigate the "Haunted House on the Hill," an old farmhouse in Tennessee. You can watch a clip from the episode below.
Meat Loaf was no stranger to the paranormal. According to a press release, he first teamed up with Ghost Hunters for a 2009 investigation and worked with them numerous times afterwards. He was also long-time friends with Jason Hawes, a member of the ghost hunting team from the show.
"A lot of people don't realize with Meat Loaf [is] that he's been investigating claims of the paranormal for a long time," Hawes says in a preview of the episode, released on the Travel Channel Facebook page. "That's actually what sparked our friendship, and we've been hanging out ever since."
Meat Loaf joined the team one final time in September of 2021 to investigate the farmhouse. Due to terrifying rumors of otherworldly activity plaguing the property for decades, the new owners wanted to assure the community their home doesn't harbor any dangerous entities.
"In memory of our friend and fellow paranormal investigator," Travel Channel wrote with the preview of the episode. "We were blessed to have spent one last investigation with you."
Meat Loaf died on Jan. 21 at the age of 74. Best known for the Bat Out of Hell trilogy, he was one of the best selling musical artists of all time.

'Ghost Hunters' just investigated Walton's Abner Gaines House. Here's how to watch.
- Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below
Halfway between Lexington and Cincinnati sits a historic stagecoach stop and tavern with a tragic past. Constructed around 1814, the Abner Gaines House , 150 Old Nicholson Road, is a 19th-century tavern in Walton, Kentucky that has seen more than its share of tragedies.
Known to locals as "The Kentucky Horror House," because of a series of murders, suicides and natural deaths which occurred in and around the two-story brick building, today some believe the distressed souls of the dead have never left.
On Saturday, Jan. 29, the traumatic history of the Kentucky tavern becomes the focus of “Ghosts of Gaines Tavern,” a new episode of "Ghost Hunters" streaming on Discovery+.

The team of paranormal investigators from the popular television show traveled to Walton and spent several days and nights in the building which is said to reverberate with the restless spirits of past tragedies.
"The town of Walton is getting ready to reopen the building to the public," Steve Gonsalves, Ghost Hunters' lead investigator told the Courier Journal. "The mayor wanted to be sure that remnants of tavern's past don’t resurface as dangerous entities."
Armed with state-of-the-art technology, "Ghost Hunters" Jason Hawes , Steve Gonsalves , Dave Tango and Shari DeBenedetti learn the stories behind the chilling cases and investigate the disturbing paranormal activity that has been reported at Gaines Tavern.
"It's really sad to think of all the tragedy that has occurred here," Gonsalves said. "We had some incredible encounters, including one during a lengthy lightning storm which really shook Jason while we were investigating."
“Ghosts of Gaines Tavern” will be episode five in the new season of "Ghost Hunters" which has moved over from the SyFy Channel to Discovery+. The new season also includes an episode featuring singer and performer Meat Loaf in his final TV appearance.
"He was a big fan of the show and really enjoyed investigating the paranormal on his own and with our team," Gonsalves said. "He was a wonderful human and we really enjoyed having him join us from time to time on the show."
Gonsalves told The Courier Journal that Meat Loaf's daughter texted the day after her father's death to say how much her dad enjoyed chasing spirits with the "Ghost Hunters" team. She told Gonsalves it was fitting this would be her dad's final television appearance.
Meat Loaf, who died Jan. 20 at age 74, will be featured in the Feb. 12 episode "The Haunted House on the Hill" about an old farmhouse in Tennessee. Rumors of terrifying activity have plagued the property for decades, but the new owners want to reassure the community that their home doesn’t harbor dangerous spirits.
Meat Loaf previously teamed up with the "Ghost Hunters" crew for a special episode named after his most infamous hit "Bat Out of Hell," investigating a haunted private island in Thousand Islands, New York.

NEWS... BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
Meat Loaf unnerved as he feels spirit ‘touching him’ in one of his final TV appearances on Ghost Hunters
Share this with
Sorry, this video isn't available any more.
When it was announced that Meat Loaf had died in January at the age of 74 , it was revealed that one of his final TV appearances would be on Ghost Hunters, the paranormal show that investigates strange happenings and haunted properties.
That episode has finally arrived, with the Bat Out Of Hell singer getting up close and personal with spirits inside a home known locally as the The Haunted House on the Hill in Jonesborough, Tennessee, its owners and their family plagued by strange noises and apparitions.
This isn’t the first time that Michael Lee Aday has joined the investigators on the series, having also shown up in episodes that aired in 2009 and 2010, showing a keen interest in the spiritual world.
Ahead of the new episode’s release, Metro.co.uk can share two exclusive clips, which feature Meat witnessing some peculiar activity in the house before feeling a ghost touching his body.
Before Meat showed up in the episode, the presenters met up with the owners of the house, Linda and Brad Talcott, who told them that the property, which is a two-storey farmhouse built in the 1800s, has a history of being haunted.
While two of their daughters spoke about hearing odd noises, including a woman screaming, their son Noah revealed that he often sees an apparition of a man in his bedroom, as well as an apparition of a little boy.
Having heard that there might have been a death on the land caused by someone drowning in a pond, the Ghost Hunters, including Meat, set their sights on getting to the bottom of the mystery.
In one of the scenes, the musician was sitting in a room with investigator Shari Debenedetti when he said that he could feel someone making contact with him.
‘Somebody’s touching me. Somebody’s touching my shoulder,’ the musician said in the darkness, as he stayed as still as possible.
Shari called out to the ghost, a woman called Lydia, who they believed was there, saying: ‘Did you just touch my friend’s shoulder? We’re not here to harm you, we’re not here to tell you to leave.’
‘We’re here to give you love,’ Meat added, as the device he was holding to monitor the spirit’s presence lit up.
When Shari tried to ask further questions, asking whether Lydia was crying for Jimmy, the child she lost, all activity ceased.
‘That was very weird, Shari. Very weird,’ Meat said, as he held his head in his hands.
In another clip, the I’d Do Anything For Love singer was sitting in a living room with the investigators wearing headphones when something curious occurred.
‘Did somebody just come in that door? Somebody there?’ he asked, as a shadow of some sort appeared to pass by the fridge in the kitchen.
‘A second ago, I could see the light on the fridge, it blocked out,’ said Jason Hawes, the founder of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS).
‘No, I saw it. Keep on coming. Don’t be afraid,’ Meat urged the ghost.
When Jason asked the presence if they could move closer to the device they had on the floor to measure fluctuations in the electromagnetic field, the gadget lit up.
They then heard a noise that sounded like a hum or a groan, before their encounter came to an end.
When it was revealed in the episode that Meat would be a part of the investigation, Jason explained that the late Rocky Horror Picture Show star has been ‘investigating claims of the paranormal for a long time’.
‘That’s actually what sparked our friendship and we’ve been hanging out ever since,’ he said.
Meat returned the favour by expressing how glad he was to be a part of the show, saying: ‘I am so incredibly honoured and thankful to Jason and the team for inviting me out again.’
Ghost Hunters is available to watch on Discovery Plus, with the new episode with Meat Loaf dropping on Saturday February 12.

Ghost Hunters Returns with All-new Episodes and Special Guests Beginning Thursday, April 6 at 9 P.M. ET/PT
March 16, 2023
Jason Hawes has been investigating claims of paranormal activity since 1990 and is looked at as the leading authority in the field of supernatural and paranormal studies. Due to his pioneering efforts, the practice of paranormal investigation has advanced to international phenomenon status. Hawes has handled cases for law enforcement, religious organizations and U.S. government agencies.
Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019. Hawes served as the co-creator, narrator, producer and star of “Ghost Hunters,” which ran for 11 Seasons on the Syfy Channel. Hawes is a New York Times best-selling author of six books on the paranormal and is the creator and co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show “Beyond Reality Radio.”
He is also the founder of the most visited paranormal website in the world, The-Atlantic-Paranormal-Society.com, and he has created a network of paranormal researchers known as “The TAPS Family” that spans the globe with bases in more than 40 U.S. States and 14 Countries. He has been featured on the “Today Show,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The View,” “CNN, MSNBC, “Dateline,” “20/20” and more.
Steve Gonsalves, a former police officer, has been a public speaker and educator about paranormal phenomena for more than 18 years. Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019. The paranormal pioneer helped pave the way for a worldwide paranormal explosion as a main cast member of the hit television series “Ghost Hunters,” which included the spin-offs “Ghost Hunters Live” and “Ghost Hunters Academy.”
Gonsalves started his work in paranormal studies at a very young age and is well-educated in the field, having investigated over 1,000 reportedly haunted locations. He had the privilege of working closely with famed investigator and paranormal pioneer Dr. William G. Roll (Poltergeist) at the Rhine Research Center, and Ed and Lorraine Warren in the field.
Along with his multiple appearances on a variety of paranormal series, Gonsalves executive produced the horror short “The Captured Bird,” alongside famed writer and director Guillermo Del Toro. He has also been a featured guest on numerous television shows and radio programs, including “The View,” “Fox and Friends,” “Steve Harvey,” “Larry King Live” and “Katie” featuring Katie Couric, “Dr. Oz” and “The Drew Barrymore Show.” Aside from his work on camera, Gonsalves has an untitled book in the works and recently he directed and produced the #1 documentary of 2021 “The House In Between.”
Dave Tango – better known as “Tango” – is one of the world’s leading paranormal authorities, best known as an investigator and tech manager on the hit shows “Ghost Hunters” and “Ghost Hunters Academy.” Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019.
Tango’s origins in the paranormal can be traced back to the stories his father (an Elizabeth, NJ police officer) told him of his unexplained encounters while on the force. As a child, Tango was always intrigued by mysteries and the unknown, which led him to pursue magic as a serious hobby, and it remains an integral part of what makes Tango tick. He attributes this background to his knack for problem solving, and his ability to distinguish between what is real and what’s simply an illusion.
Trained by the best in the paranormal field, Tango’s ghost-hunting philosophy is to never be afraid to try new techniques and always experiment in the field. His trademark genuineness and sometimes strange curiosity are what fans most undoubtedly love about him. Aside from being the quirky one at his paranormal day job, Dave has been a fan of stranger things since long before it was cool – from 80s synth to video games.
Shari DeBenedetti became interested in the paranormal field at a very young age as she experienced many strange and unexplained things. But it wasn’t until her mid 20’s that she began to research and investigate the paranormal, because the house she lived in at the time was believed to be haunted.
DeBenedetti first met Jason Hawes at a paranormal event many years ago and has remained friends with him and other team members. She joined the team and was a paranormal Investigator on two seasons of “Ghost Hunters” and also appeared on the second season of “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel. She has now joined the two in the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” in 2021 on discovery+.
Born in Schenectady, New York and now living in Boston, DeBenedetti still conducts private investigations with local teams. When she’s not on the road filming, she enjoys spending time at home with her two children and works part-time at an engineering firm.
