hell bent for leather
This is one of my favorite songs by Judas Priest (http://www.judaspriest.com/), which I loved listening to growing up. To my surprise, it’s a song about sex sang by gay man — Rob Halford (http://www.robhalford.com/). It seemed to be that big rumor that everyone knew, but no one talked about.
Halford was considered the Metal God (god as in master, top of the bunch, etc). His homosexuality didn’t take his credibility, musicmanship, charisma on and off stage or anything that he represented in the 1980’s and 1990’s. Said this, Halford’s still the Metal God.
Sometimes homosexuality doesn’t make those who admire you lose respect in you.
