The Bat Out of Hell singer admits he's in hell because he has a pinched nerve in his back.

"We had a tour but I've hurt my back," he tells BBC Five Live. "When I stand up it's like I'm in... (movie) Psycho. In it, I'm being stabbed by (killer) Norman Bates. It hurts like hell."

Meat Loaf told radio hosts Colin Paterson and Sam Walker he is seeking medical help, adding, "We're gonna see doctors in a couple of weeks."

The news comes less than three months after the singer collapsed onstage during a show in Edmonton, Canada back in June (16).

Meat Loaf insists that incident had nothing to do with his pinched nerve, admitting, "It was dehydration, that was all it was."
