Rob Halford: ‘Mickey Rourke Made Me Chicken Soup In A Porno Shop’

Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford spoke in a recent interview with That Jamieson Show and talked about the time when he was not a famous person.

As you might already know, Rob was working for the porn shop before becoming famous, and in the conversation, the interviewer asked Rob about his experience during this period, and Rob’s answer was surprising for everyone.

While Rob was mentioning that it was a life-changing experience to work in such a place, he also pointed out that he saw lots of incredible characters back in those days and revealed a funny story about famous actor Mickey Rourke.

According to Rob’s statement, Mickey was there once and he made Rob chicken soup because the place was pretty messy at that time. In this way, Rob showed how bizarre situations he was in when he was working in a porn shop.

Here is what Rob Halford said:

“You can’t make this up… Yeah, that was a life-changing experience, just to see all these incredible characters coming in at the shop. And you knew as soon as they walked in what he’s going for, ‘He’s going after the big tits mags,’ that kind of thing.

And then, fast forward, I’m standing with Mickey Rourke, Mickey Rourke is there making me chicken soup because – the stuff coming out of both ends, I’ve got the worst food poisoning at that time, and Mickey Rourke is making me chicken soup in a porno shop.

I think we mentioned it in the book. He tells me, ‘Rob, this is crazy because I used to work in this porno shop in Santa Monica before I got my job as an actor. I was doing any kind of work to get some money to pay the rent. I was busing tables and working in there.’”
