Robert Williams of Metal-Rules.com conducted an interview with Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing of Judas Priest in San Antonio, Texas. August 2008
I want only that you accept me, my enthusiasm to Nostradamus and my deep feelings to Judas Priest, then I will also accept you and only your polite meanings about this!
Your friend, Trixie
My topic is only a suggestion and idea of Rob and Glenn! I thought to myself what a fantastic plan of these guys.
I think a real fan should promote this Opera, of course only if the fan likes this album, otherwise it´s never ever be possible to bring this extravagant Opera on stage!
The last word is not spoken, the management will have the last word and they will know already, what is good for their business or not, you can´t determine this decision, it´s up to the band.
I respect all the plans of Rob and Glenn and I want that they do and realize what they want to do!
You must not love this album, but I hate fans when they say it´s shit or something like that!!!!!!!!!!! Only the band decides, not you. I wanted only to reopen the plan and the idea of Rob and Glenn, only they are licensed for their productions, nobody else!
We need many sponsors, a big promotion and of course fans, for this show!
Many great musicals were produced in the past, but the problem is, for the classic fans is Heavy Metal to hard and for the Heavy Metal fans is Nostradamus to soft!
I respect all the songs, meanings and decisions of Judas Priest and Rob Halford, because I have absolutely their meanings, the will decide the right things, in the right time. I´m sure!
I would like to realize this Opera on stage, but if they don´t want to realize it, it doesn´t matter, I´m absolutely sure, they have reasons for it!
I´m so enthusiastic and I love this band very much!
I would like to convince every fan to achieve this plan!
You don´t have to go to this show and you don´t have to hear this album, if you don´t like it!
BUT NOBODY CAN´T STIR ME FROM MY RESOLVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah I know....truth
Glenn Tipton said: Each album have a different character, it is really a kind of stretched over the potential of Heavy Metal music. Every album has a separate identify and have a lot of impressions, it is successful.
The band wants to give on every album their best. It is an advanced music and it makes him feel free. Glenn always tries to expand the music.
Glenn said: “We are always expanding, we use to try anything, some was scared about to experiment and many use the formal work, maybe they afraid for their career, we try to do and we attempt anything, to give metal more possibilities, we have open the door for a lot of other bands, we creating more room to working. “ The kids accepted the band plays in every tour the same guitar solos, that´s not right, Glenn said they have in every show other guitar solos, so he has fun on tour to improvise something.
Reporters ask all the time the same silly questions about the other styles. Rob can´t hear this anymore, that´s why he gives the microphone to Glenn. Glenn replies most of the questions. I don´t understand that some fans don´t respect the very hard work of Nostradamus! They didn´t understand what really good music is. It should be more supported! The interviewers talking all the time about the differences between the albums, instead of the high quality! I like the differences; it would be boring, if one song is like the other songs.
Glenn and Rob open the doors for more sophisticated, unadulterated and very British music with much creativity, in this worldwide spectrum of music.
Metal becomes more intellectually, if the lyrics and the music are written and composed on a higher level. Nostradamus is the greatest and the most fabulous work ever.
If we have only short versions of this album, the music would lose the strong intense and the powerful, mystery might which the album have. Rob choose for every album the best songs and lyrics, Rob and Glenn needs much time to realize an album like Nostradamus, otherwise it wouldn´t be so fantastic.
Rob Halford has the best sound of his voice now, he can´t reach anymore the highest parts of his songs, but he has a full-blown voice now! He has the best voice of all time now.
I can help, it's simple just toilet and you...
it printed on your forehead

how about idiotic idiot? is that redundant? I can think of examples
Just my two pence, Trix, but do you realize that "fan" is just short for "fanatic?" A fanatic fan is about as redundant as being in close proximity or giving someone a free gift.
I write only down my feelings and all my impressions, you must not read this, if you don´t like it. I can´t also listen your videos at you tube, if you are a fanatic fan, you should understand this.
I defence also the meaning and the productions of the band, Judas Priest is my purpose in life!
Yes, my friends are my soulmates!
Wtf are you saying Trixi? are you on some kind of weeds? i read all of your nonsense about jp and Nostra,wow,i got to say you and Miss Tania are one pair of looneys loose...are you sure youre not related?
Nostradamus might turn Rob Halford on! He sings, at the last video I have sent, I see you, I feel you, I hear you… Rob is fascinated of Nostradamus!
It´s amazing two powerful and strong souls united on one album,it is unique, it´s too much for me, every time I hear this powerful work, it blows me away!
It is full of enthusiasm, sacrifice, commitment, endurance and love to him; you can feel it in every single tone and sigh of Rob. I get so awesome when I hear this mightful album Nostradamus. On the end he talks in French, it´s great. His creativity flows, it´s so amazing!
well if this topic is aboutba nostradamus tour id go cos i like the album
