ROB HALFORD On The End Of The CD, The New Album, & Never Wanted To Leave JUDAS PRIEST

Metal Temple has a GREAT interview with Rob Halford. This is a must-read. READ IT NOW, DAMN IT. :mad:

On the cd...[i]This is gonna happen to everybody before they know it - I tell you. Itís not going to come along creeping and slowly, itís just gonna be within the next few years all the record companies are going to go "weíre no longer doing retail manufacturing of CDs". Youíre going to have to get everything that you want directly from Sony Music Online, Rob Halford Music Online, IRON MAIDEN Online... Maiden just released their record on Apple ITunes but admittedly they provided a CD format as well...[/i]

On leaving Priest.. [i]The only reason why I stepped away from PRIEST, as you know the story goes... It was never my intention. I never wanted to leave PRIEST. It was the ugly contractual almost litigation condition that I was involved with, on purely words on paper. That forced me to step aside from the Sony contract and thatís when the shit hit the fan, so to speak.[/i]

Rob also talks a lot about the new album too. Kudo's to Metal Temple for this one. :party:

Fuck CD's anyways. LP's, however, will never die.

What? I thought it was because Glenn and KK wouldn't allow Rob to do a solo career?

halford always sounds like a cool dude in interviews :cool:

i can't wait for the Nostrodamus . . . i think a concept album will give it the unity that AoR lacked.

That was a good interview. He's a sharp dude. I wouldn't be surprised if G.T. popped up somewhere on a Halford album or Haflord on a G.T. album. Slater (the producer of M:C II) has been saying for sometime now that Tate is working on a solo album and multiple vocalists are involved.

He's definitely on the money in regards to CDs and the Internet. I'm really looking forward to some of his Metal God releases. Personally, I think his solo stuff is a lot more interesting than Priest. I'm also glad to hear that's not doing "Painkiller" style screams on his new stuff. "Forgotten Generation" was a step in the right direction, if you ask me... I'm pretty motivated about his stuff new stuff now :horns:

I fear for the new Priest album though...

If Priest don't put their new album on CD I won't be hearing it. :hmm:

Indeed. The CD has a couple more years to milk out of it.

CDs are still the best form of media out there, I don't think they'll be replaced by mp3's any time soon.
