Rob Halford Is Having ‘A Lot Of Fun’ Recording His Debut Blues Solo Album

October 6, 2021

Judas Priest singer Rob Halford was recently a guest of the syndicated Full Metal Jackie radio show and said he’s having “a lot of fun” working on his debut blues solo album. Halford is apparently using the same team he used to record his 2019 Christmas LP “Celestial”, including his brother Nigel and his nephew Alex Hill.


Halford said of the album, “The blues is just an expansive landscape of different styles and subgenres and everything else, much like metal. And so I’m really intrigued and excited about how this blues album is gonna turn out. You may have heard that we’ve got the basic building blocks ready. I’ve just gotta find the time to put my own work into the project. This just stemmed off from the great experience that I had with my brother Nigel on drums and Alex, my nephew, on bass — Ian Hill’s son — and our respective friends [who are] musicians.”

Halford added, “It’s gonna be an interesting record because we’re gonna try and touch a lot of different blues experiences; it won’t be one specific-sounding track after track after track. We’re gonna try and go everywhere and mix it up. So, as I always say, it’ll be ready when it’s ready. [Laughs]”

If you haven’t read Halford’s autobiography “Confess” yet, that was released in September 2020 and is a great read!

Can’t wait to hear a Blues album from Halford!
