In case you’ve missed it, Miley Cyrus has revealed she’s working on an album of Metallica covers. Now, Judas Priest frontman, Rob Halford has commented on the release saying he, “can’t wait.” And, neither can we Rob Halford.
Halford appeared on the Life In The Stocks podcast earlier this week.
“She is incredible,” said Halford on the pop star. “If you think about her life in show business from being a little kid, and how she’s kept her head on straight… she went a bit mad as a teenager, which you should do, that’s your right, she was expressing herself.”
“I can’t wait,” he said on the Metallica covers album.
“That’s going to be great. She has an extraordinary voice. Like [Lady] Gaga, the voice is everything. And she’s a metalhead, she’s always throwing the horns up.”
“She’s someone I’d love to meet if the stars ever aligned.”
Rob Halford continued, “Women are so strong and powerful, especially in music.”
“Gaga, Madonna, Miley, my friend Maria [Brink] from In This Moment, and going back to [the ’70s band] Vinegar Joe’s [singer] Elkie Brooks, and Janis Joplin and Shirley Bassey… the power of women can’t be understated.”
