From Planet Rock.
Rob Halford wrote ‘Confess’ alongside Ian Gittins, who co-penned Nikki Sixx’s acclaimed 2007 book The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.
Billed as the ‘full, frank and shocking autobiography of Judas Priest’s Metal God’, the book promises to be ‘a compelling, heartfelt and honest look at the struggles Rob has faced with addiction and his sexuality as well as exploring his music and his many brushes with controversy.’
It focuses on Rob’s rock-n-roll lifestyle from the late eighties to the band’s 50th anniversary in 2020.
Commenting on the book, Rob Halford says: “Confess is a unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to expose every facet of myself.
“Digging deep with nothing to hide and nothing to fear was in many ways exciting, fun, disturbing, terrifying and cathartic. I’ve held nothing back. It’s time for me to Confess.”
Sarah Emsley, publishing director of Headline, said: “I have a real passion for warts-and-all, career-spanning autobiographies from icons of the music world and Rob Halford’s story is truly incredible.
“Covering seven action-packed decades, the early material from Confess is stunning. We cannot wait to publish Rob’s book around the globe next year.”
Confess is being released as part of Judas Priest’s 50th anniversary celebrations. The band also headline the Sunday night at Bloodstock Open Air on 9th August 2020.
