B Rock Note: Rob Halford Says Metal Fans are Furious Judas Priest Isn’t in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Here’s a question rock fans: Metallica is in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Black Sabbath is in. Kiss and AC/DC have also been inducted. Why hasn't Judas Priest? We believe it’s time for them to get the nod to the Hall of Fame in Cleveland.
Frequently ranked as one of the best metal bands of all time and has an amazing 50 million albums sold, it's time.
Rob Halford, frontman for Judas Priest, has said in a recent interview that their metal fans are “furious” that Priest has not yet been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They’ve been eligible since 1999 and we’re finally on the ballot for the first time this year but did not make the final list of inductees who went into the hall this past Saturday, April 14.
Halford didn’t use the word "snubbed" but he did say he was a bit disappointed and despite not getting in this year, he says the fans are the reason for their incredible run of success.
