Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford is marking a whopping 37 years of sobriety with a heartfelt and thankful video message.
Halford took to Instagram this week to celebrate the milestone and discuss how much it means to him to be clean for so long. Watch the video message below.
“Hello everyone. Today marks my 37th year of my sober life, one day at a time,” he says in the video message. “When I look at this commemorative coin, I’m full of love for my higher power and grateful to you because having you in my life helps me maintain my focus making the best I can in all areas of metal as well as trying to be a better person by taking a daily inventory.”
He adds, “I believe we never stop growing and searching to find ways to do anything that improves not only our lives but also for all those we love. None of this is easy and it wasn’t meant to be. We constantly have to work and dig deep into every aspect of ourselves to stay clean and sober.”
“To those of you on this same journey, I send my unconditional love. And to those of you who are about to begin, please take that first step into your new life. I love you.”
