This is awesome. No bullshit, I got a little verklempt looking at this.⠀

When I was 16 years old I had a poster hanging in my bedroom of Rob Halford sitting on a Harley Davidson. Amongst that gem I also had other various Judas Priest pictures from Hit Parader magazine adorning my walls, including one of the full band “gettin’ it on” with a girl dressed in semi-bondage clothing in some hotel room. ⠀

The other day my friend Jimmy Duff, who runs Duff’s Brooklyn sent me this photo from the other nights’ NYC Priest show where Halford is wearing a “Machine Fucking Head“ patch on his battle trenchcoat. It was a pretty amazing moment to see my band on his jacket, after his band adorned my walls for so long⠀

Halford was one of my earliest singing influences (not that you would ever know it by how I sing), but I literally spent a year trying to mimic his inflections, his moves in his videos, his style (I can still do damn good "You Got Another Thing Comin'" impersonation). ⠀

About the same time that I had that poster hanging on my wall I decided I wanted to be a singer, and my dad was like “hmmmm…”. Then he said "why don’t you take a couple lessons and see how it goes?" So we took the 25 mile drive from Fremont to the Oakland/ San Leandro border where we took lessons from a man whose name I have long-since-forgotten.⠀

He was a trained opera singer though. He knew his shit! So when I walked in, I busted out my TDK cassette-rip of ‘Stained Class’ and played him “Beyond the Realms of Death” and said, “I want to sing like this!"⠀

I had been obsessing over the song, and couldn’t stop listening to it.⠀

Now the first Judas Priest that I had heard was the “Screaming For Vengeance” album, that plus their “hit” songs that were played on Bay Area radio stations KOME and KSJO back then such as⠀

I got this book from the author @johnjosephcromag the singer of Cro-Mags, about five years ago, while hanging out at a (now-defunct) bar called Idle Hands in Manhattan. At the time I had no interest in eating vegan, but I was grateful to be getting a gift from an artist who I had long admired. I worshiped Cro-Mags album “the age of quarrel”, and was lucky enough to see their reunion show back in 1992 (?) at the Palladium in Hollywood with Biohazard supporting. I spent the entire show in the pit and ended up “bro-ing down”, with some black skinheads, as the white skinheads were being douche bags to any “long-hairs”. Fast forward to earlier this year, and I went vegan for three months, and his book had some great advice. My body had a pretty extreme reaction to Soy, so I stopped eating that way, but continue to eat 1 meal a day vegan or vegetarian. Even if you aren’t vegan, and have no desire to ever eat that way, it’s a truly inspirational book, that’s got way more to do with positive mental attitude. Everyone should read this #meatisforpussies
