Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford revealed that he recently fought a battle with prostate cancer during the pandemic.
Halford made the news public in an interview with Heavy Consequence.
Whle speaking about the band’s new 50 Heavy Metal Years of Music box set, Halford said, “I had my little cancer battle a year ago, which I got through and that’s in remission now, thank God. That happened while we were all locked down, so things happen for a reason as far as time sequence of events. I have nothing but gratitude to be at this point in my life, still doing what I love the most.”
The 70-year-old singer on Saturday shared on Instagram some photos of him apparently taken at the hospital, with the caption, “Thanks for all the love maniacs and guys get your prostate checked.”
In his just-released updated paperback edition of his memoir, “Confess,” Halford mentions being diagnosed with and treated for prostate cancer.
