When Sarah spoke to Judas Priest lead singer Rob Halford recently, one of the topics that came up was the horrifically evil way the metal band gets warmed up for each show.

It’s truly devilish.

It’s hard to underestimate the importance of openly gay Judas Priest singer Rob Halford coming out all those years ago.

Because when he did come out it forced rockers everywhere to confront their feelings about homosexuality. The internal monologue probably went something like this:

“Rob Halford’s a gayer?”

Yes.

“But he’s badass. So does that mean gay people can be badass?”

Yes.

“So I can still like Judas Priest because they’re still badass? And who gives a shit about who Rob Halford is sexizing anyway?”

Yes. Exactly.

… And the world became a slightly better place.

Sarah spoke to Halford about gay stuff leading up to the big WorldPride party happening in Toronto this weekend.

Judas Priest Perform Their Epitaph

The Risky Fuel household is a pro-Judas Priest one. Aaron first fell in love with them when AWA tag-team wrestlers The Midnight Rockers would come to the ring to the song “Living After Midnight,” and Sarah tweaked to them when, upon realizing Rob Halford was the gay, that all their songs needed to be re-examined as coming from the perspective of a leather daddy top.

Anyway, the Priest have announced they’re not going to tour regularly anymore, so this latest trip to Toronto might be the last time we ever get to see the band. As such, Sarah made a pilgrimage to the Air Canada Centre and wrote about it for the National Post. You can read about it by clicking here.
