    Not exactly.

    Halford has been there since 1973. Ian Hill on Bass since 1969. Scott Travis on Drums since 1989.

    Unfortunate situation that many bands from the 60s and 70s are now finding themselves in. With age and retirements, do they continue on with the band members that still want to be active.

    It really is, I just listened to Trunk talk about that very thing this morning. Both about Priest and just in general.

    The ACDC thing the past couple years was the most extreme example of attrition for a major band.

    I mean, early 2014 we knew they'd have a new album coming soon and Angus, Malcolm, Brian, Phil, and Cliff were all in the band. Then Malcolm, Phil, Brian, and Cliff all are gone for one reason or another just during one album/tour cycle, one at a time. It's crazy!

    KK was my favorite member of JP, and although I was depressed when he left I'm surprised at how much I like Richie in the band as a player and a person. But now with Glenn and KK gone, and for Priest to be such an iconic twin guitar band, I just feel like they should just stop. I'll support them if they continue, and I'd certainly be happy for Rob to continue his solo career, but if I could choose I'd have them release this new album and retire the band.

    It was so hard watching Rush end, but it was time to do it and I'm at peace with it. And I don't want JP to grind slowly to a halt as a shadow of itself.


    Then you have some bands like Journey, where many people have considered them a tribute band for ages even though three of the long time members including the two primary songwriters are still there, only because they don't have their famous front man who himself was a replacement member!

    It all just depends on the band I guess.

    From what I've heard of the new record so far, this is going to be their best one in 30 years, easily. And, by some stroke of luck, with Halford's voice being in INSANELY good condition for 67 years old, I'd like to see them complete this tour & then go out on top.

    I saw Rob Halford tour with his band Fight in 1993. It wasn't anywhere near as good as Judas Priest.

    Threw on Defenders of the Faith last night driving home.

    Great songs, and man, what a HUGE sound they had on that album. Only way I can describe it. The kick, the snares, the bass, the leads, the all sounded huge AND I could easily pick them out and listen to each part if I wanted to.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    A man's rights rests in three boxes: the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box

    Judas Priest isn't my thing, but I am certainly aware of them and what they mean to metal fans everywhere and why that goofy Rock + Roll Hall Of Fame hasn't put these guys in but the band that probably launched a thousand hair bands is getting in is a mystery to me.

    Defenders of the Faith is a underrated album (hard to top the 3 that came right before it) and yes, it does have a huge sound! I saw them on that tour, and many others. I have not listened to that album in awhile and now I am going to have to crank it up today!

    SRC, looks like you lived in the Va Beach area in the 80s. I used to see Scott Travis play in the bars in Newport News and I am trying to remember the name of the band he was in. Was it "White Heat"?

    I didn't like Fight as much either, but I love a ton of his solo stuff. And he's played JP stuff on solo tours that JP hasn't played in ages (Tyrant, Genocide, Stained Class, etc). Live Insurrection is incredibly good, even though they openly acknowledge some things on it are not really live. Regardless, Rob sounds incredible. Into the Pit by Fight is on it and it's crazy good. But my favorite is Light Comes Out of Black.



    Freaking love this song, too. It's mostly slow and dramatic but great and then it ramps up around 3:40.

    Been listening to Desert Plains A LOT lately. Just a good grove. Then KK and Glenn trade back and forth a few times on the solo.

    Yeah, Defenders didn't have any big "HITS" with the pop or rock radio crowd, but it is a great all around album.

    The Sentinel is probably the favorite for most Priest fans. JP has played that song LIVE more then any other off of Defenders. They haven't played Heads are gonna roll since 1991. Very cool that they brought back Love Bites and Jawbreaker in 2015.
