there are drummers who could do those. not Dave, but he is busy for a while anyway. I dont think the reaction would be the same as when rob left. yeah, having scott with the band on defenders would have been sweet
DF, sorry, dont have the energy to change threads. and hell I dont care about how many threads there are anyway. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by Cobras-Aura from Thursday, May 28, 2009 9:36:39 AM)
I think a lot of fans would be shocked and disappointed if Scott left. We'd have to say goodbye to future incarnations of Painkiller, Hell Patrol, Judas Rising, Hellrider etc and that wouldn't be pretty. Undoubtedly Scott is here to stay until the band retires. My only thought on him is he should have been in the band since 1984 not 1989.

I dont get how rob is 1 out of 5 members, yes he is a great singer, but he is 20% of the band. they changed drummers all the time. if KK left, no where near as many people would react as when rob left. if ian left, I bet 1% of fans would care.
I agree hellrider. Also, I doubt any of us would even know who Ripper Owens is if it wasn't for Priest. I think many people here would say Priest is not Priest without Rob, therefore, although the Ripper years kept KK, Glenn, Ian and Scott playing music, they are almost transition years (for lack of a better term), moving forward to Rob returning and completing the band once more. It would be the same situation if any of the current members left, it just would not be Priest.
On the subject of the live album, I think it's awesome, end of story really. For them to still be going, releasing any albums at their ages is fantastic.
