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

I think my record is next to yours: I am following the band since 1985, when I was almost a child to the present, good metal heads we are, the Judas fans

Well, I'm a fan of Priest, since I was 8 years old (1979), when I listen the "Unleashed In The East" LP. So I have 32 years following the Metal Gods.

Hi, this is my first post and my answer, guys and girls, since I can remember I have been a Judas Priest fan, let´s say 1984, guess it was love at first glance ;)

Heard them for the first time in GTA Vice City back in 2003. At the time I had just gotten into hard rock with Uriah Heep and Deep Purple, so it was an obvious choice for me to listen to V-Rock in that game. Although the song featured in the game (You've Got Another Thing Comin') didn't yet make a huge impact on me back then.

Anyway, three years later I was looking for new bands as Heep & Purple started to sound a little too "soft". Because I knew fairly little about traditional heavy metal (modern metal bands sound like s**t if you ask me), I decided to use the playlist of V-Rock as a base on finding new bands. I admit that I resorted to pirating songs (back then I didn't think about the negative effects of it much). So I downloaded a couple of songs from each of the bands featured in Vice City, and Judas Priest really stood out of the rest. The first songs I heard from them (besides YGATC) were Painkiller, Jawbreaker, Hellrider, Revolution and I think Turbo Lover was there as well. And the more songs I heard from Priest, the more I started to think that "this is it, this is the band I want to start following". In a couple of months later I bought my first Priest CD - Killing Machine - and I consider having been a real fan ever since.

So, around four and a half years of defending the faith. And did I already say that I was born in 1991?

Well, I've been a Priest fan over ten years.
But still my first Priest album was Nostradamus.
I just loved it and started to buy more, now I have them all. :)

I'd heard a handful of Priest songs before and liked them a bit, so I ordered British Steel from one of the mail order CD catalogs in the early 90's. Of course I immediately ordered every other Priest album they had after that. It was mostly their 80's stuff and Painkiller, so I kind of got into Priest through that era, which is still my favorite era to this day. :) I remember not liking Painkiller that much at first because I thought it was too heavy, LOL. It's my favorite album of all time now.

I listened to Fight a lot back then too, right around when they put out their first album.

Way, way back in th day, I joined a mail order cassette club.  I really new nothing about metal, let alone Priest.  I had grown up with deep purple, led zeppelin albums from my older brother, and his crew of friends.

I went out on a limb, and chose Sad Wings of Destiny as one of my 12 introductory "free" cassettes...... It was leather, studs, and rock star hair after that!  and to this day, I still absolutely love "Sad Wings of Destiny"

About 5 years, my friend played Painkiller for me, and I was stunned. about a year later I got my hands on the entire collection, and had it all copied into my computer, and I listen to it every day ^^

I became a fan of Priest in '87. I had just gotten my drivers' license, had an AMC Hornet that I bought for a mere 350 bucks. The factory AM/FM stereo was awesome (or so I thought at the time, LOL!!), and I was discovering my local hard rock/metal station, the mighty DC 101   Those who grew up in the Maryland burbs of D.C. in the eighties remember this station well. THey had a morning DJ named The Grease Man. This was where I heard my first Priest song, "Turbo"!! I'll never forget the first time I heard that song. It was a sunny fall day, and I was driving home from school. I misheard the lyrics, hearing this dude belting out "I'm your terrible lover!!" "Damn!!!", I thought, "This singer must be a real bad ass dude!!" There was something magical about this song. I had to know who it was by. When I asked a couple of classmates about the song, this one dude, who drove a very nice Monte Carlo with Cragars and a nice aftermarket stereo, starts laughing, telling me that the words are "Turbo Lover", not "Terrible Lover", that this is Priest, and what other songs are Priest. I already knew "Livin' After Midnight" and "Breakin' the Law", just didn't know who they were by. Pretty soon, I had cassette copies from K-Mart of Turbo and British Steel for my Walkman, and looked forward to hearing Priest on DC 101.

Rocka Rolla came out the year I was born, 1974. Have been a Priest fan all my life.... but really got into them when I was about 14, 22 years ago!!! Wow, I AM old!!

I've been a full fledged Priest fan since 1982. I heard Living After Midnight on the radio and liked it but when my buddy down the street got the Screaming For Vengance  tape (yes cassette tape folks!), my life changed forever. I got a Walkman and listened to that tape constantly. It wasn't long after that my brother and I got the whole back catalog. The first Priest show we went to was Defenders in 1984 at the St. Paul Civic Center. We were on the main floor in about row 20. Me, my brother and 2 of my friends drank a gallon of Jim Beam before the show. Great White opened. Those were the days...

I heard "Diamonds and Rust" on the radio in 1977-78, picked up "Sin After Sin" shortly thereafter.

If you will look down of Judas Priest page,you will see that the page was designed by Francis Murray,and if you click on his name,this will bring you directly on his site,and there you will see all details about his birth,and also about all his work,and even his contact details.
I notice you are born on 19 february,which means you are on the cusp between aquarius and pisces,because the aquarius sign end on 18 february in old horoscopes but 19 february in new horoscopes,so you can be a aquarian too,and the pisces start in 19 february in old horocopes and even 20 february in new ones,so you can be a pisces too,so definetly you are on the cusp between these two signs,and in that case you have the both character and personality,some from one,some from other,but the better way to enstablish also which is your sign exactly is to know your year of birth,and special the hour and the location of your birth,cause just with these details,you can find your ascendante which is the most important point of your chart and from where practicaly start the building of your own astrology natal chart,and togeter with the positions of planets in the others signs,and houses,and with the aspects between planets,etc ,all will determinate your true character and personality and your destiny and your life in all domains,from health,love,work,and to karma,etc...

So better check for these details first,untill then you can look over the pisces and aquarian personality too,and when you will have all that details about you,and you will give your details to an astrologer todo your chart,then maybe you will be surprised that you are in fact more like other sign,other than pisces or aquarian.

A cusp? Does that mean that I'm in between both? Damnit, where's Walter Mercado when you need him?

And yes, we are odd, indeed.
