Rob Halford Guests on ‘The Walking Dead’ Star Norman Reedus’ TV Show
If you didn't know Norman Reedus, the actor who plays Daryl Dixon on The Walking Dead, is a metalhead, well... now you do. His travel series on AMC, Ride With Norman Reedus, debuted in 2016 and is currently in the midst of its third season. The next episode, which airs on March 3, features the Metal God himself, Judas Priest's Rob Halford.
In the clip, seen above, Halford presents Reedus with a floor-length leather jacket that's befitted with cross-stitching, studs, fringe and a pair of wings on the back. "I might be crying a little right now," Reedus admitted upon trying on the jacket. "You just put this on and you feel power," he said.
"Isn't that great? That's the whole thing about these amazing outfits — you'd hear all these really heavy riffs and drums and screaming vocals and then you'd look at yourself in the mirror and you go, 'The look doesn't quite match to the sound.' So that's where the adventure with Priest started," explained Halford.
So far in Season 3 of Ride With Norman Reedus, the actor has met up with other rock legends. He hit the road with Jethro Tull mastermind Ian Anderson in England and caught up with Primus' Les Claypool in California.
