    1989–1991

    Various band members passed through during this time period, and no firm info is known on exactly when people started and ended their employment. However, it is known that Pat Thrall and Dave Gellis both filled the lead guitar position at various points during this period, that Martin Gerschwitz (from February–July 1989) and Mark Alexander both handled the keyboard position, that Cindy Thrall was apparently a background vocalist in 1990, and that the core of the last certainly-known lineup (Steve Buslowe, Chuck Burgi, and Amy and Elaine Goff) were still intact, until John Miceli replaced Burgi in 1991.

    Adding to the confusion, the liner notes for Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell, after the standard credits for session musicians and amongst Meat Loaf's management team and other miscellaneous thank you's, list the following people as part of "The Band". (Note that the instruments or positions they have been known to fill in the past are listed; it is not known whether they actually filled said positions in the same band at any time.)
