    Spat out of hell: aging, beefy Meat Loaf sues once-fat "cybersquatter" for $100,000

    Rock star Meat Loaf sues pub tribute singer
    for 64,000 damages in a row over his website
    (Daily Mail)

    Dean Torkington, 50, a pub tribute singer from Burnley, Lancashire, has received a writ from the US rocker, which accuses him of being an 'online imposter' and a 'cybersquatter'. The writ claims Mr Torkington has 'commercially exploited the internet top-level domain name MeatLoaf.org to capitalise on the artist’s celebrity'.
    On his website Mr Torkington, who goes under the name 'To Hell and Back' and whose shows feature a real motorbike and big artwork back drops, states: 'You simply won't find a more accurate portrayal of the Rock God Meat Loaf anywhere else.' [Mr Loaf recorded the widely popular song Bat Out of Hell, released as a single in 1979.]
    Mr Torkington added: 'I have been a Meatloaf tribute performer since 1996. I used to be an Elton John performer before that but put on quite a bit of weight so decided to become Meatloaf.' He also said the fact that he’s shed 11 stone in the last two years means he could no longer be considered a 'dead ringer'.
