Why: In the song "Objects in the Rear View Mirror May Appear Closer than They Are," Meat Loaf sings (beautifully):
When I grew up with my best friend KennyAnswer: Undetermined. The song was written by composer, lyricist, and producer Jim Steinman, who wrote both Bat Out of Hell and Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell. Information is vague:
We were close as any brothers that you ever knew
It was always summer and the future called
We were ready for adventures and we wanted them all
And there was so much left to dream and so much time to make it real
But I can still recall the sting of all the tears when he was gone
They said he crashed and burned
I know Ill never learn why any boy should die so young
The song draws "its inspiration from the singer’s often-tragic childhood. The lyrics portray a man who has overcome tragedies in his life yet still feels haunted by their memory."
The More You Know: The song may refer to an experience Meat Loaf (b. Marvin Lee Aday) had as a child, with "Kenny" serving as a reference to JFK:
He, a friend, and his friend's father drove out to Love Field to watch John F. Kennedy land. After watching him leave the airport, they went to Market Hall, which was on Kennedy's parade route. On the way they heard that Kennedy had been shot, so they headed to Parkland Hospital, where they saw Jackie Kennedy get out of the car and Governor John Connally get pulled out, although they never saw the president taken out.
