It’s rocker Meat Loaf (real name Marvin Lee Aday)’s birthday today, September 27. While he may be most famous for his music, the performer is also just a regular dad. In fact, he’s proudly coached youth softball. Click here to read a hilarious story about having a rockstar as your coach. Meat Loaf’s hybrid rockstar-dad life is unique, but he’s not the only one who’s managed to pull it off. Here are some other musicians who are just normal dads when they’re not onstage.

Mick Jagger

While he might be one of the most iconic rock stars of all time, to daughter Georgia May he’s just Dad. The model spoke about her father in an interview saying, “‘People say all the time, “Your dad is so cool”. But I’m like, “But they’re my parents and they cringe me out all the time.” She went on to reveal a fun fact about her pops: he’s a history buff!

The Boss’s daughter is a competitive horseback rider, and he’s her number one fan. Springsteen is regularly seen attending her competitions, including when she was trying to qualify for the 2016 Olympics.

Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper’s daughter Calico has performed with him since 2000. Can rock ‘n roll count as a family business?


While these rockers may be known for selling out arenas around the world, when they’re at home with their kids, they’re just dad. To their children they’re both embarrassing and lovable…except they probably have cooler stories than their friends’ dads.
