Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford told us that an unexplainable transition occurs prior to him hitting the stage, which turns from soft-spoken, mild mannered man offstage to “Metal God” by showtime: “Something happens — I don’t know what it is. It’s kind of intangible. It’s probably best left unanalyzed, because it might be (laughs) too scary to find out what the hell’s going on. I know that something takes over — that’s just the full extent of the passion that I have for my music, and the fact that to some extent, it’s always been my therapy.”
