[HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS] Friday, February 18, 2011 7:45:52 PM 
You are absolutely right about why Rob left, he saw traditional metal was no longer the in thing. He even said metal was dead, didn't he? I was so pissed at him that I didn't even follow him back then and stuck with Priest. I think the POE album and some of the other things are management and record companies telling Priest to go that way, not necessarily what they wanted to do if you know what I mean. As for the reissues and remasters, it's the only way to keep your stuff on the shelves of the CD stores these days because they only carry the current stuff. I remember when you could go into a record store and buy any album the band had, current or 10 years old but it just isn't that way anymore. Other bands do the same thing, trying to attract new fans. Is it the bands decision to put out those or is it the record company's? I don't know. And yeah, Rob wasn't making it big with Fight, Two or Halford and then he reunited with Priest. But money isn't everything and if you hate the people you are with, it just isn't worth it. When I saw Priest in 1990, I'm not even kidding about this - they HATED each other that night! It was beyond obvious to anyone that had ever seen them before. I have the bootleg video of that show too. They aren't very good at hiding their emotions on stage, lets put it that way. Of course it's about making money too, but they wouldn't be able to write or tour if they really didn't want to be together. So I'd say it's likely half and half, 50% for $ and 50% because of the magic they found together.
