Gaslight Anthem man borrows Meat Loaf’s piano to make ‘young girls scream’

Frontman Brian Fallon chats about Horrible Crowes album

The Horrible Crowes, the new side-project from The Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon, have revealed that they are using Meat Loaf‘s piano from his 1977 album ‘Bat Out Of Hell’ for their debut album.

The band – which is a collaboration between Fallon and The Gaslight Anthem tech Ian Perkins – entered the studio last week to start work on the record.

Updating fans in a post on his blog,, Fallon stated: “The piano you see pictured above [on the blog] was also used on a record called ‘Bat Out of Hell’ by a guy named Meatloaf, which is one of my top 20 albums of all time.”

Fallon added that “60 per cent of the piano work and about 80 per cent of the Hammond B-3 Organs” are completed and that the album “is coming out better than I could have ever dreamed.” He later joked that “this record is going to make the old women blush and the young girls scream.”

The Horrible Crowes debut is being recorded in New Jersey with Dropkick Murphys producer Ted Hutt at the controls.
