Rob Halford, the frontman of the British heavy metal band Judas Priest, has talked about his latest book project, ‘Confess: The Autobiography,’ while touching upon what he wrote about Ozzy Osbourne in there during a recent interview.
As you might know, one of the most renowned names in the metal community, Rob Halford, has released his autobiography, titled ‘Confess,’ on 29 September 2020 via Hachette Books.
In August 2020, Halford confirmed that he had completed an audiobook version of the publication, to be made available at the same time as the physical release. Rob Halford joked about the book that between his early childhood, adolescent years, and the place where he’s at now, the result would be a trilogy like ‘The Lord of the Rings.’
Within his most recent conversation with Cleveland, Halford has explained some of the surprising anecdotes he wrote in his book and recalled the period when he subbed for Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath for a couple of times back then.
He called Ozzy a miracle man while admitting he loves him to death because of who he is and what he represents, particularly in rock ‘n’ roll. He praised the legend by remarking all the great work he’s done with his solo endeavors.
Here’s what Rob Halford said when asked about Ozzy Osbourne:
“Oh my God. [Laughs] That guy’s a miracle man. We all love him to death, don’t we, because of who he is and what he represents, particularly in rock ‘n’ roll.
I’ve been saying that a lot of the music Ozzy’s made over the years, besides Sabbath, is not really remembered as strongly as he should be – all the great work he’s done with his solo endeavors, those great early albums. That’s classic stuff. So, we love Ozzy.”
