tQ's chief metal correspondent Louise Brown talks to Rob Halford about God Damn Heavy Metal

"Every day is a heavy metal day!" Golden God Rob Halford joins Louise Brown to talk about Judas Priest's 18th album, Firepower. Subjects for discussion include Glenn Tipton - "a real hero for us" and his ten year battle with Parkinson's Disease and what his future role in the group will be. The pair also talk about their near five decade history, the persistence of the riff, the nature of fandom, the spectre of retirement, the outsider uniform and much more.

Thanks as always to Mighty Seb White the producer, Todd The Dog, Epic and everyone at We Care A Lot PR.
