Maybe they just realised that the were never as good apart as they were together, and the fact that before all the crap post Painkiller happened, they were best friends. Maybe I'm just an optimist, but that's how I see it. As for money, yeah that plays some role, it has to, they make music for a living for goodness sakes. I guess I'm just not so easily convinced of Priest being so hollow. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by jimmyjames from Friday, February 18, 2011 3:08:10 PM)
I can't think of any other reason why a band who don't get along would suddenly decide to reform after 14 years.
Honestly, I have never felt that for a second.
Everyone knows it's true deep down.
Better watch out man, you're not supposed to "rip" on Priest and then praise Maiden around here ..lol
Yes it was, the band had been broken up for 14 years. Obviously bad blood there as well. Priest were a joke with Ripper, The Fight and Halford bands were going nowhere. Suddenly classic metal starts to make a comeback in the early 2000s. Oh well, lets put our differences aside and try and make some money out of it. That's exactly what happened.

AMOLAD kicked ass on Final frontier. and priest a cash grab? AOR wasnt a cash grab. glad maiden won, but Final Frontier sucks balls
Final Frontier is actually really good. The best Maiden have done in a while. And a much more deserved grammy than Priests for Dissident Aggressor. There seems to be a lot of anti Maiden feeling on this thread sometimes. It looks like a case of sour grapes from Priest fans who can't admit that Maiden have just done it better than Priest throughout their career. Priests career since 1990 has pretty much been a joke and it's been a cash grab since 04.
