I have a great interview that is a "panel" discussion of the 5 band members from 1986 during Fuel Foe Life Tour.
They answer 20 questions from an audience.
If I can upload it from the VHS tape I will email you.
Glenn mentions if he was not in a band he would be a gynecologist.
(Wonder if he took that idea from Alex Van Halen at the end of the Hot For Teacher Video?)

|Halford interviews you've never heard before! |
I've been digging through some really old cassettes and found some of my old Rob Halford-interviews
One of them is from Swedish national radio 1984, a rock-show called Rockdepartementet
, where Rob begins with "I'm 32 years old...".
Talk about stepping into a time-machine...!
The next interview is an "as-is" interview from the Painkiller
tour back in 1991. It's about 45 minutes and not even I have heard the whole thing
since it was done!
I used to record everything so that I wouldn't forget what had been said when it was time to write my article. This particular interview was also aired on a small Swedish radio station, Radio MCB once - but only about 50% of the whole interview.
It's as exclusive as it gets for those who are collecting Halford-stuff. I can guarantee
that you've never ever heard this one.
I posted "Part 1" today. There will be part 2 and 3 as I dig out more...
You'll find the blog and the audio-files in an embedded player HERE

|[JT_Small_Deadly_Space] Thursday, September 10, 2009 3:30:47 AM|| |
|Oh bugger, here's me thinking they are going to announce going back into the studio after Japan. Oh Well!|

|Ian Hill spoke with The Hippo (NH newspaper) on August 13th:|
Judas Priest to celebrate British Steel at Meadowbrook show
By Michael Witthaus
A 1990 lawsuit accused the band of inserting subliminal messages into their songs, and driving two disturbed young men to suicide. Bollocks, was Halford’s retort. Urging fans to kill themselves is counterproductive. Better to secretly urge them, he said, to “buy more of our records."
On Sunday, Aug. 23, at 6:30 p.m. ’Priest hits Meadowbrook U.S. Cellular Pavilion in Gilford for the final night of their American tour (though without Whitesnake, who exited when lead singer David Coverdale’s voice blew out last week). The show will feature a complete performance of the band’s most successful album, British Steel, released in 1980. Bass player and founding member Ian Hill spoke on Aug. 13 about the tour.
Any favorite moments on the tour?
We’ve done so many places; the main thing is the show, which we always enjoy. Days off are few and far between.
You’re ending in Gilford.
Beautiful part of the country, New Hampshire. It’s our first time playing in Gilford. We’re looking forward to somewhere with a bit of scenery. Last time around, we went to Lake Champlain in Vermont. We rented speedboats and motored from one end of the lake to the other, peered through people’s back windows.
How has the response been to the nightly performances of British Steel?
Fans know what to expect, which is great. Though really, it’s something we’ve never done. Someone pointed out it was the 30-year anniversary; when you play the songs every night, you tend to forget which album it came from. British Steel was the first one we had a U.S. tour with where we were the headliner.
When did you first come to America?
In 1977. In 1980 we opened for REO Speedwagon. Then we were special guests with Foghat and Journey. We began British Steel as special guests with KISS — damn good start that — and then went on our own. We must have done something right.
How did you start the band?
We were both about 17 when we started playing together in 1969. Kenneth [guitarist “K.K.” Downing] and I weren’t really close friends until we realized our common interest in music. We formed what was really a school band, with a chum called John Ellis. Judas Priest was another band. Their lead vocalist, Alan Atkins, came round and asked to sing. Family commitments caused him to leave, but we kept the name.
What were your influences?
Honestly, I listened to white boy blues — Eric Clapton, John Mayall. But my big influence was Jack Bruce, and Cream. I thought their live recordings were stand up. I still listen to Wheels of Fire today.
You moved away from finger picking your bass in recent years. Why?
Clarity, really — it’s a cleaner, sharper sound. When you have a couple of distorted guitars, you need that clean sound to put it through.
How has the second time around with Rob Halford been?
All was well when Rob came back. Everything clicked into place like an old jigsaw puzzle. We did some good material with Tim [“Ripper” Owens, who replaced Halford from 1996 to 2003]. He’s a great vocalist, great bloke. But being a fan of the band, he could see the sense of it. In every interview, we were asked if Rob was coming back.
