Speaking in a press conference in Indonesia, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford has shared his opinion on Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
He’s very comfortable about it and said ‘ we will get in there eventually’. Here’s the statement:
“Everybody has different opinions on this Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. It’s kind of a controversial issue for some musicians. And I think everybody in the band has a slightly different observation on it.
But I think on the whole, it’s no different to the other institutions of the same experience in America, like the Basketball Hall Of Fame and the Football Hall Of Fame. If you are included in that kind of place, it’s something of an honor, because you’re surrounded by your peers, you’re surrounded by the people who enjoyed the same life and experience in that kind of endeavor.
So if that does happen for Judas Priest, I think it will be a wonderful moment, because we’re a British heavy metal band and the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is an American institution, but it still carries weight around the world. So we’ll wait and see. I think we will get in there eventually, hopefully.”
