By Jon Wiederhorn
Last spring, Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford was in the studio working on material for his new album Halford IV — Made of Metal (in stores this week) when things almost went very wrong.
Halford had noticed his guitarist, co-writer and producer Roy Z was chugging coffee like Gatorade to stay awake after a late night. “Two hours later, we’re working on a track and he turns to me and goes, ‘Whoa, I have to stop and take a break. My heart’s racing. I’m really freaking out here,’ ” Halford recalled.
Fearing he was having a heart attack, Roy called 911 and an ambulance screeched into the studio parking lot, lights flashing.
