|Guys, you all refined metal to a class act. You don't need make-up or gimmics, just great passionate rock and roll. I broke into the metal scene on Sabbath and Bachman Turner Overdrive in the early 70's but when I heard the "Hell Bent for Leather" album, I was hooked. It was the first JP album I bought. Then I expanded onto the other albums that came before. I have been a devoted fan (all excepting the Ripper years...sorry guys) but when Rob came back from his Halford days (which Rob, I actually loved that live album you all did), I knew the old sound was back. |
I sincerely hope you all are not breaking up, but if so I have a short thanks for gratitude for each of you. Thank you for coming to Dallas, Texas last year and playing the whole British Steel album. My favorite song is Steeler and I never new I'd get to see it live. Thank you.
To Rob: Man, you are the voice of rock and roll. No one is like you. There will never be another Rob Halford, I hope you stick around because man, I think you refine JP to the super band that you are.
To Glenn: You are my hero guitar player dude. I think you are incredible, always seem so cordial to the audience and when you motion to the crowd you love us, that is total class. As a fan, thank you for doing that.
To KK: What riffs man. You are such a class act and just are a fantastic guitar player. Your hair and V are just like a fucking iconic statue. I really appreciate your musical talent and dedication to us fans.
To Ian: You make it all flow together man. I don't even have the words to express what a wonderful bassest you are dude. Thank you for all your dedication and efforts. Who doesn't love your work on Metal Gods?
To Scott: Just incredible drumming man. It was awesome to see you perform in Dallas. You make it all the heavier man. There is no other style and you are unique and one of a kind. I always know you from anyone else. Thank you for you.
I hope you all can make it back to Dallas on your tour because guys I'll be there cheering you on for the fourth or fifth time.
You all are my favorite band of all time and I will sincerely miss you. Just this year I had a custom license plate made in dedication to the band. I ride a 1800cc bike black with red flames and custom license plate that is a dedication to one of my favorite songs. It reads HLRIDR. My wife looked at me like I was fuckin nuts. If I knew how to send you a photo of it, I would be honored. Thanks again for blessing my life with JP.

|Priest! Please say it ain't so!!!! Please don't go! "Don't go! Please don't leave me. Don't go in the morning! Don't go! Please don't deceive me. Don't take it away!" I'd do I'd do anything for you!|

Never turn your back, on the Ripper! T.O. !

|I too second what J.D is asking of you. I know it must be a monumental task, but please, please give us just one more album. Judas Priest the band, the music, everything it stands for means the world to me.|
I have been a fan for about 8 years now and you're the only band I have truly supported and loved my whole life. If you can find it in your hearts to write us another classic heavy metal album, we in the metal community will be eternally grateful.
I don't think I've ever wanted something more than what I am asking you as a band right now and I know there are people everywhere now clinging on to a glimmer of hope that you will produce this last metal masterpiece for us.
Please Priest give us one more metal monster of an album. We can wait just please create it.
Your loyal and devoted fan, JT

| HI to Rob/Scott/Glen/KK & Ian. I don't know if you guys will see this post due to the fact you're on a really busy schedule but none the less.I want to say thanks for all the great music you made and how much you touched my life and made me love the Genre known as Heavy Metal.If it wasn't for you all I don't know if I would have picked up a guitar.Glen & KK were such an inspiration to me along with the rest of you. I'm sure you hear this from alot of fans all around the world.The happiest Day of my life was when I saw you Live in Calgary Alberta Canada 2008 for the first time in my life.Your music made me happy and for a fleeting moment could take me away and forget all the rotten things that happen in this world.Thank you so much for the memories and great music. I have to admit I'm a little sad and perhaps teary eyed this is your last tour. Thank you so much for bringing your music into my life and all the other Priest fans around the world..Warmest Regards..Palmer Griffiths..|

|While the band might or might not read these messages, I'm still posting this message as if I was writing for them.|
So, it seems that the career of the Metal Gods, at least as a band (you probably will still continue with some solo projects), is going to end. I've been a fan for a mere four years - which is an extremely short time given the length of your career - but during that time I've become more and more assured that you've been the No.1 metal band of all time, and, quite frankly, the only band I've really been a fan of (and to have purchased the complete discography!). Without you, there probably wouldn't be Iron Maiden, Metallica or any of the other world-famous metal bands. Metal would probably be a marginal style of music. Instead, it's now generally accepted as one of the main genres, which is undoubtedly a result of your relentless effort and influence on the music style. It's a shame that you never quite reached the top, although when looking at your 80's performances on DVD, I find no reason why you shouldn't have! But, all good things must come to an end, and I fully understand that you want do do something different for a change - especially for Ian and K.K., who have been in the band for 40 years straight (not forgetting Glenn and Rob, of course)! It's a shame that you didn't get to work with Scott Travis for a much longer time, he's proved himself to be more than a good drummer!
I fell in love with your music because you could change it so much between different albums, but still keeping that certain sound that separated you from the other popular metal bands. For example, when I first heard "Nostradamus", I could instantly tell that it was still the old Priest back there, somewhat modernized but still keeping in line with the traditional style of metal. No other band with such a long career has so succesfully managed to adapt to the modern times. That is not to say that I don't like your older records, oh no: I like them even more than the newer ones!
Because of my rather young age (having been born a year after Painkiller was released), and not being a fan of the band before late '06, I have seen you perform live just once, at the 2008 Helsinki concert, something I won't ever forget! I'll definitely do everything in my power (and perhaps a little more) to be at Tampere this year, when you will perform your ninth (unless I've done a serious miscalculation) and, most likely, final concert in Finland. You will undoubtedly deliver the goods, ride on the wind and rock to the dawn.
If possible, as a final effort, you could collect any unreleased songs you still have in your possession (which you undoubtedly do have), and release them in connection with the last world tour or after it. The bonus tracks featured on the remasters were so good that I was only left wondering if there was more of them!
While you might stop touring and releasing new material, your music will rock forever. Farewell, Metal Gods.

|I've been a fan since the early 80's. Just want to say thank-you for a life time of Heavy Metal. You deserve to retire, just don't disappear. I appreciate the videos that you put online, more specifically, Glen Tipton... Merry Christmas to you all and rock on! Hope to catch a show on your final tour, but if I can't, hopefully you will record it and sell the videos. Yours Truely, Terri|

Hi Rob, Glenn, KK, Ian and Scott!! I would really love to see just one more studio album before you head off into the sunset one more time. Everyone here would love to hear some more amazing work from the greatest metal masterminds on the face of the Earth. We need some more material to go with us to sing on to help alleviate the sorrow brought on from this last hurrah.So please with all of fans on your minds: Unleash something that will shake all of the lands and seas with the massive power of Judas Priest heavy metal!!
