Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford has led one hell of a life. A life that you can find out all about on September 29 (which is likely today) when Halford releases his autobiography Confess. The autobiography was written with Ian Gittins, co-writer of The Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx, and is described by Halford as "a unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to expose every facet of myself."
You can hear Halford read an excerpt from the first few pages of the book below. Pre-order Confess here.
"Rob Halford is the legendary frontman of Judas Priest, one of the most successful heavy metal bands of all time," reads a synopsis of the book.
"Known as 'The Metal God' by his devoted, global fan base, Rob Halford has always subverted the norm, and Confess will offer readers a compelling and honest look at the struggles he has faced with addiction and his sexuality as well as exploring his music and his many brushes with controversy.
"There have been few vocalists in the history of heavy metal whose singing style has been as influential and instantly recognizable as Halford's. Confess, published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Judas Priest — and described by Halford himself as "exciting, fun, disturbing, and terrifying" — will celebrate five decades of the guts and glory of rock-n-roll."
