Earlier during a recent conversation with Ultimate Classic Rock, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford talked about the band’s upcoming induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
The singer mentioned that Priest has been in touch with K. K. Downing and Les Binks about the upcoming induction.
K.K. Downing has confirmed to Ultimate Classic Rock that he will perform with JUDAS PRIEST at the band’s upcoming Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony.
“I think we’ve probably got eight or nine minutes.”
“I’m not even going to be able to break a sweat. The main thing is to represent the attitude and hopefully the legend of what JUDAS PRIEST is and has become and what it means to everybody who’s been on that very long journey through the decades with the band. And hopefully, it will just kind of remind people and bring back some cherished memories of the heavy metal parking lots all around the world.”
“It’s almost like cracking a beer, let alone riding a bike. It’s embedded in me. It’s what I do. So it’ll be quite something to look forward to, just to get up there and crank the amps up and just do it once again, for that short moment in time.”
Earlier, Rob said:[…] “Everybody’s been very cool and agreeing. There’s just been [an attitude of], ‘Let’s just relish this opportunity and jam and put everything on 11.'”
“We are gonna play live because there is all this roar: How are we gonna do it? Because we want to try and make the best things happen. So the best things to happen are to bring in all of the people that are included in the induction, which includes, obviously, K.K. and Les, and Dave [Holland]. So, we’ve been able to work things out, so we will be playing live. We’ve got, like, eight minutes and 24 seconds and a half-second to play live.”
