Metal God, Rob Halford of Judas Priest had a recent interview with Francisco Zamudio of KNAC and admitted that he still wants to drink alcohol and do drugs, after being sober for 33 years.
Rob Halford also said that these addictions nearly killed him before he entered rehab in 1986.
Here is what he said:
“I wish I could have a drink, I wish I could have a smoke and do a line. I wish I could do all that, but I can’t. I’ve done all that. I’ve done all that and it nearly killed me.
I wish I could do that because when I’m with my friends and they’re having a good time, and there’s this little devil on your shoulder, ‘Just have a quick shot. Do a shot of Jack.”
“For those of us that are in recovery … that’s the biggest temptation: dealing with the little devil on your shoulder or the monkey on your back.
When you are clean and sober, for a musician, particularly for my journey, it’s the greatest gift I was given. It was a gift. I can’t do this by myself. There’s another source helping. That’s just a thrill to share with the music at this point.”
