TIGF!!! (That's Incredibly Gay Friday): Rob Halford

That's right. Rob Halford is the singer for Judas Priest and the best heavy metal singer ever. Seriously. Now the scoop is that around '79, about when "Hell Bent For Leather" came out, Rob wanted to express himself without saying it, so he just wore onstage what he bought from a London gay sex shop for his own personal needs. What is funny is that this is the origin of the heavy metal look, and one that is associated with being masculine and tough.

Even though Halford looked like this many women wanted him. He eventually came out in the nineties and apparently that still shocked some people. I mean, what does a guy have to wear to get some cock around here?

Me learned to eat pussy to the raging rythms of Judas Priest. Me fears fer me masculinity.

What can I say... studded leather... sooo not a turn on for me. I'd have immediately thought he was gay.

Is this where the term manly man comes from?

Cool! I lived near Phoenix in the 80's and went to the nightclub where Rob used to hang with his boyfriend and saw them there. I knew the dude was gay. Fun post!

Nessa~ Quite possibly.

Cindrarella~ I remember you telling me that once, big sis.
