|Hey Accolyte. I am sort of torn between going to Lethbridge and Edmonton. Lethbridge is a smaller venue, but Edmonton I think will be easier work wise, and maybe I can expense the hotel!!!|
WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK is up with Uriah Heap as the opener? when did they last play live? Ok, I googled that, and they toured in 2018 and actually looks like they played in Alberta.
still, way to stay relevant

|Actually, looking at the tour dates, it looks like some of them will have the band at the same venue for two days! Hmmm...|

|As Acolyte- Woke up to some fantastic News, The mighty Priest is going to play in Kelowna which is 30 minutes away instead of 5 hours!!! Will save Hundreds$ not having to drive and pay for hotel in Vancouver + the time ,June 16th, I know what I am asking for for Father's day!!!!!! Also on another note, has anyone checked out. "Murder Falcon" graphic novel, the heavy metal cover variants are awesome #1 was Painkiller #2 was somewhere in time, a bit of the story was the guitarist finding his bass players "spirit animal" to channel, it was a wooly mammoth and his name is Halford! Lol good bit of fun, trying to find a 1st printing of the Painkiller one- also HEY actual Headbanger, you get Priest in Edmonton June 11th! I might travel up and see it with a buddy who lives in Camrose, we can hook up for a beer! Or 17 Cheers all! -Acolyte FirePower Baby!|

|Sad but no WAY I could entertain those prices. Plus the VAT plus the % to the auction house, etc.|
Gads. Even when they list that he broke this one and patched it for stage use.... REALLY interesting gems in the readings, though!

|Interesting factoid from Rob:|
“Sea of Red from our Firepower record talks about Remembrance Day 11th November. Lest we forget”
|[Head banger] Thursday, November 01, 2018 8:41:03 PM|| |
|Acolyte- got around to KK's book, one surprise in there that Baxter was an item with Rob, my thoughts are that KK really wanted to let fly but always pulled back from absolutely saying something about a particular subject, there was for me an underlying message that he never fully shares, was it because he felt a true tell all would ruin any chances of a reunion? Or any chance of reconciliation? I don't know. It just seemed to me that he was bursting to tell us exactly. What actually transpired but faced possible ramifications either personally/professionally. The drug and alcohol stories were a bit weird for me, Rob gets a paragraph about his issues approx. And then moves on, yet there is repeated mention of Glenn is actually the one with the issues IMO as a reader. The other thing for me is the lack of pictures, really a dozen pictures after almost 40 years come on the book should have been full of candid pics,also not a lot on his rigs and guitars, I am not a player but I know he has inspired a lot of people to play, so I would gladly have hung around for a chapter or 2 while he made some guitarophile's day! I will look through it again as I think more on it and post, Cheers |

|Whatever the situation was we'll never know but whoever it waswho made|
the decision NOT to tour Nostra-bore-us in it's entirety I'd like to hug and
Kiss them because I fuckin HATE that album.
There are 5 albums that shouldn't of been recorded and shoved off on us
fans: TURBO...RAM IT DOWN...JUGULATOR....DEMOLITION...
...NOSTRADAMOUS. They should have Mr.Yuk stickers on them. HA!
Here is some fun:
Here's my "The Worst Of Judas Priest" double album 21 tracks excluding at least
the Jugulator,Demolition and Nostradamous albums:
1.Here Come The Tears
3.Before The Dawn
6.All The Way
8.Eat Me Alive
11.Private Property (2nd worst Priest track ever)
12.Parental Guidance(THE worst Priest song ever)
13.Hot For Love
15.Im A Rocker
16.Johnny Be Goode
17.Love You To Death
18.Monsters Of Rock
These songs I've always hated and think they shouldn't
of even been recorded. I know some like some of these songs
and to each his own but also I know there are other tracks that
come close but I somehow still like every song not mentioned
here and those 3 shit albums I excluded.

|JANE did, no question. The band would have and SHOULD have exploded without her / Curbishley. MUST have had backing from someone in the band. |
Ain't pointing no fingers, as I have yet to read the book, but we all know without any whistle-blowers what happened. Baxtergate, anyone? All a sad situation there. Still... Make mine PRIEST!

|@Metalman JP... point taken,fair enough 👍|
|[METALMANJP] Friday, October 26, 2018 11:02:57 AM|| |
|I respect your opinion. I'm not talking about keeping the band together and making more albums, I was referring to KK stating that Jane and Glenn would not tour in the summer months and refusing to do interviews or anything else that was presented to the band. I always felt the management did not do a good job of promoting Priest and they suffered from that. Also, Halford has said he wanted to do a full Nos concert which I think would have been great but probably would have cost them more than they would have earned. I have no ill will against Glenn but from different interviews I have heard and things I have read Glenn most certainly had the say so in Priest so again I feel he did hurt the band back in the day.|
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Wednesday, October 24, 2018 8:25:58 PM|| |
|@Metalman JP from the blah thread.... |
I highly disagree with everything you've said. I've never had the impression
Glenn was a "jerk" not to mention I don't believe everything K.K. says.
And not sure how Glenn held the band back supposedly "taking over"?
Had he not the last Judas Priest album would of been 2008's Nostradamous lp.
Downing has BOLDLY made it CLEAR he wanted to PUSH Judas Priest into the
NOSTRADAMOUS direction touring it....and has also said that He wanted Nostradamous
to be the LAST Priest album. Had Glenn not took hold of the wheel this band would be retired long ago.
