JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford recently interview to NME magazine. He also reveals new details on the progress of the songwriting sessions for the band’s follow-up to the “Firepower” album.
Rob Halford knows as a Metal God. He also spends 50 years on the band and they will still make music and touring with JUDAS PRIEST. After too many years, his aged 69, Halford releasing his autobiography, “Confess The Autobiography” book. This book tells the unforgettable rock ‘n’ roll story-a journey from a Walsall council estate to musical fame via alcoholism, addiction, police cells, ill-fated sexual trysts, and bleak personal tragedy, through to rehab, coming out, redemption . . . and finding love.
During an appearance on NME, Rob Halford talks about new album details:
He answered: “Did you learn anything about yourself through revisiting your life for Confess?”
“Not really. I just turned 69 and people might think, ‘It’s a miracle you got through’. But there are textures to my story that are not unique to me. There are other people out there that have been abused, other people that have had problems with drink and drugs, and who have had to deal with suicide in their family and friends. I’m not unique by any stretch of the imagination.
But when you put it in sequence from my earliest memories to where I am now, it’s a strong potent story. And for whatever reason, everything seems to have turned out OK – I’m in love, I’m healthy, and I’m lucky to be in this great metal band 50 years later. I wouldn’t say I’m content, but I’m more settled.”
Halford also added some details about the new album:
“As far as JUDAS PRIEST goes, we already have a strong selection of songs – practically a complete album – to go when we’re able to reconvene at some point. But we need to do a lot more work on it before we even get to the full production stage yet.”
Rob Halford will out his autobiography book on September 29th, 2020. You can also pre-order here.
