Judas Priest fans were shocked in 2011 when guitarist K.K. Downing left the band he founded in 1969. In a new interview, he spoke in depth about his reasons for leaving, and the differences in the industry between now and when he started.
Ever wanted to hang out with Judas Priest? If you have at least five grand and some vacation time coming up, you'll get the chance early next year at Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp. Frontman Rob Halford, bassist Ian Hill, drummer Scott Travis and new guitarist Richie Faulkner will all be part of 'Hell Bent for Vegas,' taking place Feb. 27 through Mar. 2, 2014, at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Sin City.
Almost as soon as they announced their 2011 farewell tour, the members of Judas Priest started clarifying that what they meant was that it would be their final major world tour. So if you missed them on that run, don't worry: It sounds like the band has had a change of heart.
If Judas Priest had scheduled a film premiere 30 years ago, Rob Halford would have showed up on a Harley. But time stands still for no one -- not even a Metal God -- and Halford was rocking a decidedly different set of wheels at the New York screening of the band's 'Epitaph' DVD on May 14.
The departure of founding guitarist K.K. Downing obviously left a major hole in Judas Priest's lineup, but according to frontman Rob Halford, Downing's replacement, Richie Faulkner, is doing just fine.
When Judas Priest released their 11th album, ‘Ram It Down,’ 25 years ago today, few people outside of the band’s inner circle had an inkling that the storied British heavy-metal institution was standing at a crossroads.
'Revolver' magazine's fifth-annual Golden Gods Awards, held last night, featured Metallica as the night's headliners. They were joined onstage by special guest Rob Halford, who led the metal giants through a surprise performance of Judas Priest's 'Rapid Fire'.
