JUDAS PRIEST’s ROB HALFORD Is Planning On Writing An Autobiography: ‘I Think It Has To Be Done’
In a new interview with Full Metal Jackie, JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford says he’s planning on writing an autobiography.
He said: “I was thinking about this last night. I’m gonna give you an exclusive. I am gonna write a book. But I was thinking about things that have happened to me that people don’t know about. And this is gonna be funny — I was personally blessed by the Virgin Mary in a church in England. If that’s not gonna make you read my book, I don’t know what is. I’m gonna leave it at that.
“I’ve had so many beautiful things happen to me over my life,” he continued. “I’ve had a very, very rich life and I’m still having it, and I can’t be more grateful than I am right now.
“I’ve just thinking about it. I think it has to be done, because you get these knockoffs and you get people giving their impression and their interpretation, which is all good,” Halford added. “And I think when it comes from the source, it’s really important. Some of the greatest books written, like ‘The Dirt’ by [MÖTLEY] CRÜE or the book by [LED] ZEPPELIN or Lemmy‘s book, all of these are books that come from the heart of the matter, the heart of the story.
“It’ll happen one day, Jackie — it’ll happen one day. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s on the front burner.”
