Rob Halford of Judas Priest explains to Yahoo Entertainment how he struggled with coming out as gay, if any of his song titles were coy signals about his sexual orientation, and the terror (and humor) of his own George Michael-esque incident.
The Judas Priest frontman recalls when he got caught by police for "cruising" in a bathroom.
"It's kind of sad that I had to go to such extreme, dangerous measures to get some kind of intimate physical contact," he said.
He also shared advice to other people who are thinking of coming out later in their lives.
"Once you've burst out of the closet and made peace with yourself ... and you find out who the people that really love you are," he said.
