Rob Halford is revealing that he fought prostate cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic

The Judas Priest singer shared the news during a new interview and says he is now in remission. 

Halford explained, “I had my little cancer battle a year ago, which I got through and that’s in remission now, thank God. That happened while we were all locked down, so things happen for a reason as far as time sequence of events. I have nothing but gratitude to be at this point in my life, still doing what I love the most.” 

Halford underwent a prostatectomy and had radiation treatments in April and May of this year.
