“It was a night I’ll never forget”

Rob Halford would love to do a duet with Willie Nelson, “He’s like a god”

Monday, October 7th, 2019

Judas Priest singer Rob Halford took part in a question-and-answer session with Full Metal Jackie of the 95.5 KLOS radio station on Friday, October 4 from The Viper Room in West Hollywood, California. You can now watch the chat in three parts below.

Asked if there are any artists that he would like to collaborate with in the future, Halford — who is promoting his upcoming festive-themed LP “Celestial” — said: “There’s a beautiful song on this album called ‘Morning Star, and I kind of put that song together pretty quickly. I was in the kitchen of my house playing acoustic guitar and this song just started to happen.

And as I was playing it, I could hear Willie Nelson in the background singing along with me. And I thought, ‘How could would this be, for The Metal God and Willie Nelson to do kind of a duet?’ And he’s like a God, right? Willie Nelson is a God.

And as luck would have it, Willie is on the same label as I am — Sony/Legacy. So we’re trying to see if that could be a possibility. I mean, I would just be jaw on the floor; I’d be the total fanboy geek. You would have to give me an hour to get over the fact that Willie might be sitting there with a microphone.

I would love that to happen — just because he’s special, and I love Willie. I love what he does with his music; I love what he does for America; I love the way he supports the farmers and the very important people that put the food on our tables here. So he’s iconic in many, many ways. So that would be great if that could happen.”

Farm Aid brings together wonderful people who care about farmers and their farms and the food they grow and who want to show those farmers how much we need them. And lots of these Farm Aid supporters and music lovers have become my close friends. I didn’t get to see lots of friends who were there, but here’s a few photos.
