His partnership with Jim Steinman soon deteriorated, along with his career, and by the end of the 1980s he was bankrupt. But by the mid-1990s they'd kissed and made up, releasing the imaginatively titled "Bat Out Of Hell II: Back Into Hell". In 2003 he collapsed on stage at Wembley Arena, and subsequently underwent heart surgery after being diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome (an illness in which the patient thinks they are a law firm).
