Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner once again questioned the credibility of Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
Faulkner told The Vindicator that he would like to see PRIEST get its rightful place in the Hall — even if just for the sake of its fans.
“I don’t speak for the rest of the band,” the guitarist said. “This is my own opinion. But [induction into the Rock Hall] means a lot for some fans. Metal has always been the underdog. For a band like PRIEST to be nominated is great for metal and its fans, and it’s great to see those fans being appreciated. On the other hand, I think after 50 years of creating new music and touring the world, with our fan base, that’s more of an accolade than any award. Our fans are passionate.
“We could get in next year,” Faulkner continued. “If PRIEST is not inducted, what is the credibility of it?”
