JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford has confirmed to New Zealand’s Stuff that he is finally working on his autobiography. “It’s been rattling around in my head forever,” he said.
“As you move on in life and have had the wonderful good luck, fortune and gratefulness to spend 50 years in a glorious band like JUDAS PRIEST, the main thing is you want to be to tell your side of the story from the horse’s mouth, as opposed to something that has been knocked up by somebody else from a bunch of interviews and so forth,” he continued.
“Just because of the way I am and because I’m the lyricist of the band — a bit like my mate Bruce [Dickinson, IRON MAIDEN’s lead singer] — I think mine will end up like ‘The Lord Of The Rings’. Between my early childhood, adolescent years and the place where I’m at now, I think we’re talking about three heavy metal tomes.”
