During a recent interview with Stuff from New Zealand, Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford gave new details about his upcoming autobiography.
He also revealed his similarity with Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson. He said:
“It’s been rattling around in my head forever. As you move on in life and have had the wonderful good luck, fortune and gratefulness to spend 50 years in a glorious band like Judas Priest, the main thing is you want to be to tell your side of the story from the horse’s mouth, as opposed to something that has been knocked up by somebody else from a bunch of interviews and so forth.”
“Just because of the way I am and because I’m the lyricist of the band — a bit like my mate Bruce [Dickinson, Iron Maiden’s lead singer] — I think mine will end up like ‘The Lord Of The Rings’. Between my early childhood, adolescent years and the place where I’m at now, I think we’re talking about three heavy metal tomes.”
On possible biopic movie for Judas Priest, he said:
“I think Judas Priest has had a very interesting life. We’ve certainly got some stories to tell. We’ve certainly had a lot of incidents on the road that’s for sure,” he adds, also pointing to the similarities between himself and QUEEN frontman Freddie Mercury.
On who can play him in a possible Judas Priest movie, he said:
“Who could be the ‘metal god’? I haven’t got a clue. I thought Rami [Malek, who won an Oscar for his performance in ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’] 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.”
