|I agree! We also knew something was up. There were even rumours that he made a few adult movies. Who cared. Halford was the greatest singer then ( we'll maybe the second greatest) Freddie (oh wasen't he gay also) Mercury was right up there. It's all about the music and Halford and Priest were and are the Greatest!|
I don't care who politicians sleep with and for all the musical pleasure Halford has given me, I'll give him any one else every right to enjoy their personal life the way they choose.
Just keep on feeding me thew metal!

|Me and my friends knew something was up with Rob back in the 80's. I was the biggest Priest fan in our circle, and they would rip into him/me about him being gay. They never liked my responses or defending him, cause i'd just say, i don't care about who he is dating/seeing, or what he's doing sexually, i'm at the show to hear him sing. If you don't like him maybe being gay, i won't get you a ticket next time their around! They never missed a show until getting older and married, and having kids, and moving on. Some of them still say shit, but they still go to the shows, so who's the fool? It's never bothered me too much, i just love their music.|

|The music world/entertainment industry has (on the whole) been more tolerant/accepting of gays and lesbians than many other areas.|
However, it stil seems that in metal/rock it is till not acceptable to many and apart from Rob, there are very few openly gay males in metal. And look how long it took him to come out. And with the ignorant attitude of so many, who can blame him?
Is it because metal is still seen as a matcho male thing?
