Judas Priest’s Rob Halford: “I Am Going To Write A Book”

During an interview with Full Metal Jackie, Rob Halford (Judas Priest) revealed that he is planning to write a book about his life. This news comes after the singer previously dismissed the idea in the past.

Halford said the following:

“I am going to write a book, but I was thinking about things that have happened to me that people don’t know about, and this is going to be silly – I was personally blessed by the Virgin Mary in a church in England. If that’s not going to make you read my book, I don’t know what will. I’ll leave it at that; I’ve had so many beautiful things happen to me over my life. I’ve led a very, very rich life and I’m still having it and I can’t be more grateful than I am right now.

Just thinking about it, I think it has to be done because you’ve got these knockoffs and you’ve got people giving their impression and their interpretation, which is all good, but I think when it comes from the source, I think it’s really important – some of the greatest books written like [The Dirt] by Motley Crue or Lemmy’s book, all of these are books are come from the heart of the matter – the heart of the story. It’ll happen one day, Jackie. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s on the front burner.”
