When a band’s been around for 50 years, you can be sure its members have more than a few interesting stories to tell. Such is the case with Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford. who says his autobiography has been “rattling around in my head forever.” And now he’s ready to share it with the world.
“I think Judas Priest has had a very interesting life,” Halford says. “We’ve certainly got some stories to tell. We’ve certainly had a lot of incidents on the road, that’s for sure.”
But who would play the iconic singer should the book be given the Freddy Mercury/Queen treatment on the big screen? “I haven’t got a clue,” Halford says. “I thought Rami [Malek] did a fantastic job of Freddie’s persona, charisma. But I’m sure there’s another actor out there who could get the leather and whips and chains on.”
