    • Marvin: Someone mentioned the possibility of Bat IV to me, and I just giggled. I don't know... this could be it. Once I'm locked into something like a Bat record, it becomes a real driving force and I become very motivated, but right now it's really difficult to imagine doing another one. I'm just really happy with this one.

    • (About the single 'It's All Coming Back to Me Now')
      Marvin: That was originally supposed to be on Bat Out Of Hell II.
      I wanted it to be a duet, and Jimmy said, 'Let's save it for Bat III.'
      So, we were saving it, but then it was given to Celine Dion... and so, I was bound and determined to do it on Bat III because that's what it's purpose was, and I think we did a version that's different enough from Celine Dion's to warrant being on the record.

    • (About working on Bat Out Of Hell III)
      Marvin: I thought Jim Steinman was tough and wants everything perfect, well... Desmond wants it even móre perfect and I didn't think that was possible. I've never worked so hard! I got a vocal coach for about four months and I've never done that before. But all the work really paid off because the vocals all sound great.

    • (About Bat Out Of Hell III)
      Meat Loaf: The Bats are typically piano-based, and we still have plenty of piano, but I have a lot of guitar-based stuff as well. I've always been mentally more hard rock than I've shown on records before, and I think the concerts tend to be where that's come across. So I've pushed that this time. I was like, 'Hey, let's rock this sucker.' So, we did... and it scared the hell out of me

      Question from Veronica Magazine, Amsterdam, November 2006: Celine Dion or Meat Loaf?

      Meat Loaf: Meat Loaf. Without doing Celine Dion wrong, though. But my single It's All Coming Back to Me Now was always meant as a duet, not a solo. I'm not all too happy that Celine once scored a hit with it, on her own.

    • (translated from Dutch to English)
      Marvin (Meat Loaf): A Rock-Icon is what other people make of you, I'm just a person who makes music.
