Meat Loaf is taking legal action against his own tribute act, saying they are 'online imposters'.
To Hell and Back, based in the UK, are accused of illegally 'squatting' on Meat Loaf's online territory by registering the Meatloaf.org domain name.
Meat Loaf is seeking $100,000 in compensation for what he describes as being 'commercially exploited'.
Speaking to the Daily Mail about the court case, Meat Loaf impersonator Dean Torkington said: "Earlier this month I received a copy of the lawsuit posted to my home and emailed. I have every intention of defending this to protect my good name and will not be bullied in this way. I really don’t see what his gripe is or legally where he is coming from, I am not guilty of cybersquatting or passing myself off as him.'
Torkington claims he has been a Meat Loaf impersonator since 1996 when, after putting on weight, he was unable to be as convincing as his previous vocation, an Elton John impersonator.
