THE METAL GOD, ROB HALFORD, EXPLAINS WHY HE TRADEMARKED NAME
He took the legal step to ensure the name couldn’t be used in commercial ventures like computer games. But he’s previously said he’s not fully comfortable with using it himself.
Appearing on Later With Jools Holland, Halford recently told the host: “I would never put myself on that pedestal. That’s the title the fans started to give me after the British Steel album. It’s something I really cherish – I don’t want anybody else to be the metal god but me.”
Judas Priest’s new album, Redeemer of Souls, will be released in the States on July 8th through Epic/Columbia.
