"Rob Halford though is one of the few metal musicians who actually has a story worth hearing....Confess, true to its title, doesn't hold back....Confess manages to be both dark and at times endearing. Halford's openness, despite some dark themes, allows for his humor to shine through....It may have taken a while for Halford to tell his story, but it was certainly worth the wait."
"Raw and searingly moving, Confess will delight metal heads and music fans alike."―GQ
"Confess can't be reduced to a collection of salacious gay encounters, cocaine binges or romanticized rock'n'roll horror stories. It's a cautionary tale that offers redemption through courage and the changing of times. It's a treasure-trove of heavy metal nuggets and anecdotes that any rock-blog dork would lose their mind over. But most importantly, it's a beautiful exploration of the human condition and one man's capacity for love and self-love."―Forbes
"Rob Halford led Judas Priest, and heavy metal itself, out of the Midlands and into the bigtime."
"Deliciously readable...Confess is a warts-and-all rock'n'roll confessional."―Esquire
"Confess is no hyperbole: Halford bares his soul."―Revolver Magazine
"Confess is a must-read for Judas Priest fans as it is written from a place of honesty and passion while done with integrity....a page-turner."―Sonic Perspectives

Rob Halford, the Metal God, poured his soul into this autobiography. Spoke about his hardships of being in the closest as a gay man, and with other unfortunate events within the mix. Not all of it is hardship and sorrow, in fact there were a great amount of positive moments in CONFESS that made me laugh enough to have strange looks from my boyfriend.
It is a not safe for work kind of novel (that doesn't bother me in the slightest personally,) so there are a very fair amount moments where he does talk about various sexual encounters.
As a long-time Judas Priest fan, this book was one that I have been wanting in my collection for years. It is a well-written document about the life of a true Metal icon who has given the world his wonderful talent...and he is still going at it!
One of my favorite things about his writing is how he describes he and his band members backgrounds, coming from working class families and growing up right next to big metal foundries, where bands such as Judas Priest and Black Sabbath got inspired to write about Heavy Metal. I love how Halford also gets to meet Jimmy Paige at various times throughout his career (opening for the mighty Led Zeppelin as well as most recently!)
I've been a Priest fan for a few decades and could not pass up this autobiography.
There are a lot of personal details about Rob from his youngest days through more recent years, allowing me to learn many things I had never known before.
It is mostly about Rob and Rob's life, not so much about Judas Priest the band, so be aware that this is what you'll get. It's his story, so that is what you're going to get. You'll see it more like how Rob and his life were able to fit into his life with Priest. I hope that makes sense.
After Rob "came out", I didn't care at all, nor did anybody I know who were Priest/metal fans. He's a great singer for a great band and that is all that has mattered to me.
I had never known about his personal pain and heartbreak involving his sexuality and not feeling safe to come out and live his life for who he really is. I can honestly say I feel sad for what he's had to endure throughout many of his early years, both before Priest and throughout their early years.
I'd recommend this to any fan of music, especially metal fans, but also for anyone who enjoys a very good read and learning about the life of a very talented individual who has overcome many personal emotional and social hurdles throughout his life.
A great autobiography, easy read, and great addition to my collection.
