Discovering a mutual interest after Meat Loaf guest stars on 'House M.D.', they partner up for the rocker's April release.
Actor Hugh Laurie is continuing his foray into the music world - he appears on Meat Loaf's forthcoming album. The "House M.D." actor became friends with the singer after Meat Loaf played a patient on the hit medical drama last year.
The 62-year-old musician was keen to work with Laurie again - and asked him to play piano on his upcoming album, "Hang Cool Teddy Bear", which is due for release in April. Laurie is a keen music man - also plays guitar, drums, harmonica and saxophone and fronts all-star group Band From TV.
As proof that Laurie was working on his album, Meat Loaf posted a link to a video that sees the actor on his piano working on the album. "Hang Cool Teddy Bear" is produced by Rob Cavallo and features Brian May and Justin Hawkins among others.
