Rob Halford is not a fan of idle hands.  While Judas Priest takes a short hiatus, their leading man is heading out on the 2010 Ozzfest Tour with his band Halford, sharing the stage with Ozzy Osborne and Motley Crue.  Halford will be performing original music along with some songs from Rob’s Fight era and of course some Judas Priest tunes. Confirming that Halford is his priority right now, the band recently offered up their new single “The Mower”.

When he’s not holding court as the reigning Metal God, Rob Halford has his hands full with his own record label, and clothing line.  I guess when you’ve been at it for over forty years, these things just come naturally.  But do these extra-curricular activities point towards Halford hanging up his mic for good any time soon?  Never – according to Halford “Performing is like a drug to me, I just can’t stop doing it.” 

TWRY recently talked to Rob about Ozzfest, being on the other side of the record business with his label Metal God Records, and of course the late, great Ronnie James Dio.
