ROB HALFORD: JUDAS PRIEST Fans Are ‘Furious’ Over Band’s Exclusion From ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME

Rob Halford says that JUDAS PRIEST fans are “furious” that the band has yet to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

Asked in a new interview with The Portland Mercury if he felt “snubbed” by the Rock HallHalford said: “I wouldn’t say snubbed. A little bit disappointed. For us it’s all about getting more metal into the halls there. Our friends from METALLICA are in there. [BLACKSABBATH is in there. You pay your dues.”

He continued: “It’s funny, really. We got more mileage out of not going in than if we would’ve got in. Our fans are furious! They’re still furious. That’s the love that our fans have got. We love our fans dearly. We wouldn’t have gotten anywhere in life without our incredible fans that support us. Fingers crossed. Eventually, I think we’ll get in there.”

Artists are eligible for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 25 years after the release of their first album or single. Criteria for inclusion includes “the influence and significance of the artist’s contributions to the development and perpetuation of rock and roll.”
