Separated At Birth?

We have cable TV, and I like to watch VH1 Classics channel. Since the original MTV and VH1 have all but stopped showing music videos, I end up watching VH1 Classics.

I like 80's videos better than the stuff that's played on the radio these days anyway, so if MTV did actually show a music video, it would probably be by someone I don't like.

They show lots of 80's metal on VH1 classics, which I like better now than when it was new. Go figure.

And you can't have 80's metal without Rob Halford of Judas Priest showing up sooner or later.

One day, Number One Daughter and I were watching VH1 Classics, and they interviewed Rob Halford.

Number One Daughter: "Dad? Know who he reminds me of?"

Me: "No, who?"

Number One Daughter: "That GUY on the Goonies movie!"

I almost choked I was laughing so hard, because, although I would have never made the connection myself, she was absolutely correct.

Their heads are shaped the same and everything.


Rob Halford and "Sloth" Fratelli,
separated at birth?

Scary, ain't it? And ever since then, whenever I see Rob Halford, I "think" Sloth Fratelli.

That is all. Carry on.

Priest was my favorite back in the 80's.

I do see the resemblance with halford's new look though.

I wonder how Rob got rid of all those tattoos on his head.

I can kinda see it. Goonies is a good movie, even today.
