Heavy metal singer and songwriter Rob Halford, of famed rock band Judas Priest, is the latest icon to sit with Matt Pinfield for the current installment of the New & Approved music series.
With a career spanning the past 50 years, Halford has without a doubt experienced the extreme highs of success and darker times throughout his life, which is documented in the latest book release with ‘Confess’.
Halford’s autobiography explores numerous anecdotes on his life and career, including a time where he may have offended Marie Osmond with a whip.
Rob speaks with Matt about his book and reflects on the importance of his decision to publicly come out and what it meant for his career and personal life. Halford also details losing his partner due to self-harm, and how that moment tested his journey with sobriety.
The outspoken and uninhibited artist also goes on to share his musical influences and heroes, which include Tina Turner, Elvis, Little Richard, and many more and Rob also shares what is next for his band post-pandemic.
