Just say how many years it been since you've become a Judas Priest fan.

About 27 years I think. I have not been a hard core fan tho, but been one of my TOP 3 metal band of all time between Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osboune. It changes frequently. hahaha

I believe it was 1979, my sister seen them as a warm up band for who know who, she came home and was all like, I just seen the most awesome band, from then on I was a full blown priest fan. Rob has the most amazing voice ever.

My go to song?............That might be near impossible to just pick one. I love so many songs for different reasons. My go to album?  Tough to call, but overall I think I would pick Hell Bent for Leather.  What about you? What would you pick?

Very similar to "winged singer" in that I first heard "Take On The World" either on the radio or on Top Of The Pops back in 1979, at the age of thirteen.

Didn't know who the band was, but knew that this was the music I had to follow.

It wasn't until a couple of years later that I truly decovered the Priest though in 1981, and my first album purchased on it's day of release was the magnificent "Screaming For Vengeance" in 1982.

My first concert was at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1983, and I've been to every UK tour since, including 4 Ripper shows.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by winged singer from Thursday, August 04, 2011 4:44:21 PM)

I've been a Priest fan for 33 and a half years. I was 8 and a half when I heard Take On The World on the radio and just knew it was a brilliant tune.

I have been a fan ever since they were in Allentown PA in 1980 for the Festival 80.  I helped with the festival and before that time didn't listen to alot of music. 

After hearing them I started listening to all the music I could get.

As of yet I haven't found any I like as much.

I love that Nazareth album. I still put it on sometimes. A timeless classic.

I bought Screaming for Vengeance on cassette from a Wal-Mart in rural Missouri in the early '80s.  Wore it and Nazareth Hair of the Dog slick.

I have been a 'Priest fan for a very long time.  Not as long as some.  Much longer than others.  Since I cannot post in the main threads, yet, I will echo HRMG's sentiments ... again.  The feeling I felt when I noticed the new artwork and lineup photos was the kick in the gut and then it was sinking, empty.

At this point, I don't see the new guitarist filling the void.  Nor do I see him contributing at any length with regard to composition, etc.  He will serve a purpose and that is all.  I will be at the shows, if for no other reason than to support Ian, the JP legacy, and to meet those of you I've yet to meet.

It is with a low heart I can sincerely say I am very disappointed.

Ever since 1978 on the "Killing Machine" tour,i went to see them with some friends and we were totally blown away by them.Ive been a huge fan ever since that night,they truly are the metal gods!!!!!

Every since I heard You've Got Another Thing Comin' on the radio.  I went out and bought the album Screaming For Vengence, which was the very first album I have ever bought in my life.  I believe that I was 12 or 13 at the time.
