Metal legends Judas Priest were recently recognised by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with the Musical Excellence Award.
In a recent interview with Metal Pilgrim, lead singer Rob Halford was asked how he felt about Priest’s recognition.
Halford had this to say:
“It’s wonderful…. And as we’ve said many, many times, this is just a wonderful moment for not only Priest but for heavy metal in general in that building, in that Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame… And we need to get some more metal in as soon as possible. But for Priest, a British heavy metal band in an American institution is a very sweet time.
“Whether you’re a Priest fan or not, we’re all in this together. We’re all supporting, loving, fighting for metal, keeping the heavy metal flag and fire burning. That’s what we’ve done since we started, that’s what we’re doing now. And that’s what we will do forever.”
The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony will take place on 5th of November.
