Rob Halford Has Mixed Feelings About Judas Priest Getting the Rock Hall's "Musical Excellence Award"
Rob Halford still has mixed feelings about Judas Priest getting the Rock Hall's "Musical Excellence Award". He says it feels like the band is "one step away" from a proper induction.
Judas Priest gets into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year, but not the way most other acts do. They're getting the "Musical Excellence Award". And Rob Halford still isn't sure how to feel about it.
At first, he admits he was, quote, "pissed". But now he goes back and forth. He says, quote, "Some days, I go, 'No, it doesn't matter. We're in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Be grateful. Shut the hell up.'
"And then there are other days where I'm like, '[Gosh] damn, why did they give us the Musical Excellence Award?'"
Halford says it's frustrating, because he feels like Priest is still, quote, "one step away" from a proper Hall of Fame induction.
