I can't imagine the Rob Halford thing surprising anyone!

As awesome as Rob was/is, he was dressed like one of the village people, LOL.
He basically had a neon sign strapped to his back that said: GAY.

Plus, check out some of the lyrics to things like Jawbreaker & Desert Plains....

Fuck, GRINDER!

GRINDER....
Looking for meat.
GRINDER...
Wants you to eat.

Awesome riff & tune, btw.
