The 5 albums that Rob Halford would take to a desert island

The legendary Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford revealed in an interview with AXS TV (Transcribed by Blabbermouth) the 5 albums that he would pick to take to a desert island. The musician showed that he would prefer to take albums from heavier groups, including Black Sabbath and Slayer, for example.


He first joined Judas Priest in 1973 and left the group in 1992 returning in 2003. They are currently working on a new album, the follow-up of “Firepower” released in 2018.

The 5 albums that Rob Halford would take to a desert island

Black Sabbath “Black Sabbath”

“My number one choices of albums… I would have to go with Black Sabbath, the original ‘Black Sabbath’ album that I think is the motivator for all great things in heavy metal,” Rob Halford said.

Jimi Hendrix “Electric Ladyland”

“Some Jimi Hendrix — definitely a Jimi Hendrix album, because I’m a frustrated guitar player and I love what electric guitars can do. So ‘Electric Ladyland’ from Jimi Hendrix, most definitely,” Rob Halford said.

The Rolling Stones “Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!”

“The Rolling Stones’ ‘Get Yer Ya-Ya’s Out!’, I think from Madison Square Garden, a live record, which really shows the energy and power of that band. One of the greatest rock and roll bands that that ever lived. Let’s bump up into more recent times,” Rob Halford said.

Slayer “Reign In Blood”

“Let’s go really fierce and aggressive with something from Slayer and really burn things off on the island; that palm tree’s gonna fall over. And so I would go with ‘Reign In Blood’ by Slayer because of its fierceness, its relentless intensity,” Rob Halford said.

Any Tool album

“For number five, I’m gonna jump out a little bit into something a little bit more cerebral, if that’s the right word to call Maynard’s (James Keenan) band Tool. But Tool, for me, has always been a great adventure, because they go to some remarkable places and it really, really is great music to put your headphones on, which I have here on this island to get lost in some Tool,” Rob Halford said.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
