A Living Room Chat With The Metal God

Rob Halford and I conducted his virtual book signing interview
from the comfort of our own homes.

Judas Priest singer Rob Halford’s long-awaited autobiography Confess has finally hit stores, and fans are excited to read all about his exploits and the behind-the-scenes drama of his life. I recently spoke with Rob about the book for NBC News Think, and after we conducted that interview I was asked if I would moderate a live question and answer session during his first virtual book signing. The event was organized by Premiere Collectibles who have been selling autographed copies of his book to fans. This was a great chance for me to get back to doing on camera interview work as well as present questions to him from fans who wanted to know even more about him.

The event took place this past Monday, September 28, at 7 PM Eastern time. It was the first time we had spoken via video, and it was unusual to be speaking to each other on camera from home. Rob and I have either have done in person or phone interviews in the past. The chat lasted a little over an hour, and fans submitted itching questions with topics ranging from tattoos to favorite foods to cats, a favorite subject of the Metal God. It was a fun, relaxed conversation, and hopefully I’ll get the chance to do this with other artists in the near future.
