Judas Priestin Rob Halford paljastaa suurimmaksi vaikuttajakseen The Beatlesin John Lennonin

Confess-elämäkertansa syyskuun 29. päivä julkaiseva metallijumala on toiminut uransa aikana innoittajana lukuisille eri muusikoille. Nyt Rob on antanut hiljattain brittiläiselle GQ-lehdelle haastattelun, jossa on paljastanut omaksi isoimmaksi esikuvakseen The Beatlesin John Lennonin. Rob Halford on kertonut olevan iso The Beatlesin fani, ja tapa, jolla John Lennon sai välitettyä voimakkaasti omia maailmanrauhaa edistäviä ajatuksiaan on jäänyt ikuisiksi ajoiksi metallijumalan mieleen. Halford kertoi John Lennonin vaikutuksesta itseensä seuraavaa:

”John Lennon. I’ve always been a big Beatles fan and always will be and I just feel that what he was offering about striving for world peace was an incredibly moving and powerful thing to do. He was an ambassador for world peace. He wasn’t Gandhi – he had a different take on it – but, as far as what he was trying to achieve, and add to that the incredible music he wrote with Paul McCartney, for me, musically and personally, in the way he conducted himself and the way he had that incredible indestructible self belief, he is a big one. He always had this great gift, this great oratory gift to engage people and explain his feelings. I’m sure he’d still be doing great music and making a difference today if he’d been able to.”
