TOPIC: Discuss Judas Priest Tours
[HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS] Friday, July 03, 2009 5:40:49 PM 
I know EXACTLY what you are saying. I have to agree with you about the distance thing, but not the reason for it. I have said it many times to people that I really MISS the happy Rob of old, where he smiled and joked with the audience. During the Painkiller tour, he seemed really pissed off.... I wasn't surprised when he left the band. Then when he came back, he seemed to have adopted this stage persona that I don't care for. I never had the feeling that he didn't care, I have the feeling that he was ACTING some sort of role. When we saw Priest in a small venue in Mount Pleasant, Michigan (September 2005), there were times where he completely dropped the act and was the Rob of old. I have to tell you, those moments were AWESOME! He shook hands with people in the audience (there were no barriers), someone came up on stage because you could just walk right up on to it, Rob turned around and smiled at the guy and shook his hand before he was taken back to his seat. He made jokes and smiled a lot. So I think it has all been an act on stage rather than disinterest. 

I know that Rob LOVES his fans and keeps everything they give him. Maybe he had something he had to do and couldn't talk after the show? He is probably one of the busiest guys in the business. I'm not making excuses, just my opinion.
