In a recent interview with San Francisco’s 107.7 The Bone (KSAN-FM) radio station, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford was asked about the biopics (Motley Crue and Bohemian Rhapsody) released so far.
“For a band that was there from the beginning of metal, it’s an interesting story, especially the way that the music kind of was created, out of the back end of hard, electric rock scene and progressive blues rock; it’s got a great timeline of events when it comes to the actual sounds and the structures of songs.
“With a lot of these biopics, you need to have a bit of — not exactly sensationalism, but I think you want a little bit more than maybe… We certainly got up to antics on the road. [Laughs]
“Who knows, man?” he continued.
“There seems to be a theme running through Hollywood right now, where Hollywood is actively looking for this kind of experience.
“Who would play The Metal God? That’s the thing. [Laughs] I have no idea. [Laughs] Maybe you can get the KSAN listeners to let you know who they think should be standing there, first with a wig and then bald-headed. [Laughs]”
