Rob Halford admits to an unsuccessful attempt at seduction aimed at onetime Iron Maiden singer Paul Di'Anno in the Metal God and Judas Priest frontman's upcoming book, Confess: The Autobiography.
It happened back in 1980 when Priest were on tour supporting their British Steel album. During the U.K. leg, the band was supported by a Di'Anno-fronted Maiden, who had just issued their eponymous debut.
And even though tensions were high between the camps — at the time, Di'Anno sneered that Maiden would "blow Judas Priest off stage every night" and Priest's K.K. Downing threatened to have them kicked off the trek — Halford still tried to take a shot at the Iron Maiden vocalist, as Classic Rock reported.
