Metal Hammer has asked:
“Hello, Rob. Are you holding up these days?”
Rob Halford responded:
“You know, about the same place that everybody else is. It’s tough, isn’t it? At least we’ve got something to do to keep ourselves occupied. It’s especially exciting for us of course, with this incredible book that we’re getting ready to launch.”
Metal Hammer asked again:
“The band has been around now for 51 years. Do you ever think, ‘Where the hell did all the time go?’“
Here is what Rob Halford said:
“What’s that expression? ‘Every picture tells a story?‘ That’s exactly what this book contains. It’s got hundreds and hundreds of stories attached to hundreds and hundreds of pictures.
There’s a little bit of a disconnect because you’re looking at yourself and wondering, ‘Did that really happen? Were we really there? Did we really do that show at that place?’ It’s a really important and valuable set of memories, that’s for sure.”
