ROB HALFORD On PRIEST Reunion: 'We Want To Go Out There And Slay People'July 12, 2003
Rob Halford has spoken to the Associated Press about his decision to reteam with the pioneering heavy-metal band JUDAS PRIEST for a world tour and a new album next year.
"All the grace, majesty and power you experienced with JUDAS PRIEST is about to happen again," Halford said Friday (July 11). "We want to go out there and slay people, and have them walking out of the building going, 'Oh my God!"'
Tim "Ripper" Owens, the vocalist plucked from a JUDAS PRIEST tribute band to replace Halford, approved of Rob's return. "He's been very understanding and very cool with the whole thing," Halford said.
Halford, who is gay, said speculation that he's HIV-positive is "a very distasteful rumor."
"I have lost close friends to HIV and it's a disservice to them," the 51-year-old singer said. "I want everyone to know that I am 100 percent healthy and I've never felt better."
