Singer Meat Loaf, who underwent heart surgery after collapsing onstage in London last week, said Friday that doctors have cleared him to resume performing.
But the burly belter, renowned for his theatrical, sweat-soaked shows, said the health scare has shaken his confidence.
"I've never really been nervous about going onstage, but I'm a little bit nervous," Meat Loaf told reporters in London. "I'm having a few anxiety attacks. I just have to talk myself into being a bit calmer when I take the stage."
