Confess

Confess

Most priests take confessions. This one is giving his.

The most hotly anticipated hard-rock autobiography of the year’

‘Rob Halford has written one of the most candid and surprising memoirs of the year. . . Confess is a riproaring tale, a funny, often shocking and genuinely emotional story’ The Telegraph

‘The Metal God shares stories from a life like no other, spending over 50 years in the heavy metal bubble, facing adversity head-on but always with a wry smile and horns held firmly aloft Kerrang


‘Raw and searingly moving, Confess will delight metal heads and music fans alike’ GQ


‘A unique and deeply revealing insight into the extraordinary life he has led’ Metal Talk



Rob Halford, front man of global iconic metal band Judas Priest, is a true ‘Metal God’. Raised in Britain’s hard-working heavy industrial heartland he and his music were forged in the Black Country. CONFESS, his full autobiography, is an unforgettable rock ‘n’ roll story – a journey from a Walsall council estate to musical fame via alcoholism, addiction, police cells, ill-starred sexual trysts and bleak personal tragedy, through to rehab, coming out, redemption… and finding love.

Now, he is telling his gospel truth.

Told with Halford’s trademark self-deprecating, deadpan Black Country humour, CONFESS is the story of an extraordinary five decades in the music industry. It is also the tale of unlikely encounters with everybody from Superman to Andy Warhol, Madonna, Jack Nicholson and the Queen. More than anything else, it’s a celebration of the fire and power of heavy metal.

Rob Halford has decided to Confess. Because it’s good for the soul.

Metal Talk
funny, forthright and unexpectedly poignant
NME
Captivating... Even for those who give metal a wide berth, his tale is fascinating
Irish Independent
A rock confessional with a difference... deeply, deeply moving... Confess does not always make for easy reading. There is a real sadness to parts of it but Rob Halford's warmth and humanity shine through. Absolutely one of the best rock biogs in ages.
Darren's Music Blog
It's a compelling story, well told, and should become a school set text to counter homophobia and promote inclusion
RECORD COLLECTOR
Halford's dry black country wit is the perfect complement to his eye-popping candour
Mojo Magazine
The most hotly anticipated hard-rock autobiography of the year. . . gossipy, good-natured and hilarious. . . it's also gloriously and relentlessly filthy
Attitude Magazine
Rock 'n' roll page-turner. . . riotous and revealing
Classic Rock Magazine
There are in this memoir the usual triumphs, tragedies and tales of misadventure. . . but the real appeal is in Halford's self-deprecating demeanour and dry, Black Country wit.
