Judas Priest Fans Helped Rob Halford Remain Sober For 30 Years

(Classic Rock) Rob Halford says Judas Priest's fans have helped him steer clear of drink and drugs for 30 years. The vocalist celebrates three decades sober in January and he hails his band's supporters for ensuring he never wavered in all that time.

Halford tells the Rock N' Roll Breakfast Show (via Blabbermouth): "Most of the Priest fans drink, but they keep me sober. That might sound crazy. But I have to go out there night after night and do my work in the way that's expected from me. And I can't go out there drunk.

"I can't go out there smashed and drugged. That's cheating my fans. That's giving them a poorer display. That's also part of my daily spiritual ritual - keeping clean and sober for my own well being, but also for my fans and everybody else."

And the self-styled Metal God urges anyone who is struggling to beat addiction not to be afraid to ask for help. Read more here.
