I'll say it again., I am so proud and honored to have had this opprotunity to work with these guys on this CD.

Thanks guys and thanks to all the JP family that have inspired these fine men to put the time and effort to make this happen.

I do believe that is the most touching and nicest thing I've heard all day DF.  However, you, MM, Thumper and the rest have EARNED that respect and encouragement from us.  We are a giant family and therefore, you guys are treated as such...mi casa, su casa so to speak. I've been to a bunch of other band sites in the past, but there is absolutely no better place for me to commune with others who share my love for JP and Metal in general than right here.  You guys f***ing rock!!!!!!!!!!!

A Tale of Two Albums

It was the the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness
... HA!!!!!!!  And so begins my thoughts on the place wherein we now find ourselves, almost three years and almost two albums later.  Such remarkable, unforgettable times. Such moments men dare not actually believe they could live! The epoch of belief I believe Dickens said. In any event, memories that will last a lifetime and all courtesy of a group of men that, sometime in the late 60's or ealry 70's decided to create a band called Judas Priest. My life certainly changed as a result, how about yours?

When MM and I decided to actually do Raw Steel, we found ourselves long on ideas but short on reality. I mean, there we were, ready and willing to do the deed but, could we? Was there really a chance that the stars would align and the fates allow? Could two people, at opposite ends of the United States, really pull this off?? Well, not alone we sure couldn't! It was all about YOU guys. The support. The encouragement. The suggestions. The reminders that this was bigger than just us. Then came Eric (maiden/priest) and Mick and Thumper (Jim) and, in what seemed like a brief blink of an eye, we had a real, live band!

I will never forget the day I met Phil ( Metal Meltdown.) I am sure there are many here that can relate to what I felt. A kinship. A brotherhood. We both knew that we weregoing to be friends. We just knew it. But there is so much more. There is a bond, forged in music, that we share. Something that NOT everyone experiences. And, three years later, the bond grows stronger.

When Raw Steel was released, the response here was overwhelming. I have never been a "rockstar". I have played live in front of crowds. I have known the joy of performing on stage and all the "perks" that one might expect from that, but I was never a real star. For a brief time back in 2006, I felt like a star. YOU made that happen for me. Your words of kindness. Your support and exuberance. For a short while, I was Rob. I was Glenn. I was a real rockstar. I know Phil felt it, too.

When Forged Steel makes it debut, we may not have the same response but, I do not expect it. this is not a novelty any longer. This is real. At last, we have something more than just some guys that get together and play. We have a bond. And....We have YOU. this album has happened because of you and your love for Judas Priest. And through that love, we have created once again. We have taken the clay of passion and we have sculpted a new and wonderful treasure that all of us can take pride in and share.  Thank you all for being here and being so caring. Our gift to you is the music. It is our way of paying tribute to the Band that made all of what we live daily possible. Each and every friendship on this site is possible because of Judas Priest and so, we thank them as well. The gift of music is a timeless and ever-giving moment of life. It rewards with no need to say "thank you" because we all are friends.

THUMPER!??!?!!!!!!   My Dear Friends of JP.com, I give you THE man with the Golden Sticks who has ALL the kicks and stompin licks!!! Our remarkable drummer, JIM GLEASON!!!!! Thumper, to us all!!!!!!  I truly cannot say enough good things about this man. He is, BY FAR, the most talented percussionist I have EVER had the pleasure of working with, and you can trust me when I say I have met a few VERY good drummers! None of them come close to this man. If we cannot get Scott himself to do the album, this is the next best thing!!! We are so incredibly lucky to have him on our new album as we were on the first one!!! As Jim mentioned, it has been a long, LONG time coming!

Nice and warm here in Vegas today! A very nice end to a rather memorable week, indeed.

HELLO to one and all !!!!! I have returned to the glorious sun (and warmth) of the beautiful southwest. Never have two people been more pleased to see the sight of the Las Vegas strip from an airplane window! HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO much to talk about! So many new and wonderful memories for the Princess and I. As expected, MM was the consummate host. And for all those that are interested, just look up the word "quaint" in the dictionary and there will be a picture of MM's house! We were truly taken with his beautiful home and lovely neighborhood.

I am sure there will be pics to review soon. As mentioned, the recording went surprisingly well. VERY smooth. I would like to think it is the result of having done this before, but there is clearly an element of luck in play!!! I will chat more on the trip shortly!!!

I spoke with Freeze this morning before he left for the airport.  He said to tell everyone hello and that he will speak to you all very soon....

Hm... Well, for some reason I am getting the feeling that you have him chained to a wall with only a giant picture fof Obama to keep him company.


In any case, you guys were very busy, I see! Btw. what does BTHATA stand for?

The southern tier, south of Buffalo got hammered.  Lake effect off of Lake Erie.  I awoke to about an inch of grainy snow this morning and about another inch fell during the early morning.  The area here in Western NY that gets it hard is the southern tier......
