For my massive music collection, I try to collect as much albums from my favorite bands as much as I possibly can. I try to collect albums from all of my favorite bands & artists such as Dream Theater, Iron Maiden, Ac/Dc, Black Sabbath, Rush, Kiss, Metallica, Smaching Pumpkins, Al DiMeola, Joe Satriani, David Bowie, Opeth, etc.
One band I’ve been trying to get into lately is Judas Priest. They are one of the greatest bands in metal, no doubt. I freakin’ love ’em; although, I only own three of their albums… I only got “British Steel”, their latest album “Firepower” and another old Priest album “Painkiller”. I heard “Painkiller” is one of their best albums, pretty high in the top 5 they’re all talking about so I decided to get that one. Haven’t heard it yet but gonna get around to it.
I also got Rob Halford’s book” Confess” and KK Downing’s book “Heavy Duty”. Haven’t read them yet but I will get to them, bought them digitally for my Ipad.
I’ve read about Judas Priest a lot over the years like read interviews with them, saw their interviews and stuff on youtube. I’m familiar with their hit songs and now I’m just starting to get into their albums.
I’ve always respected that band. Rob Halford is 69 years old and before the pandemic hit, he still toured heavily with Priest over the years. Halford don’t have the powerful and high range singing voice he used to have but he still sings amazing. He’s definitely one of the best vocalists in rock for sure. I’ve always respected the hell out of Priest and trying to get into their music more.
Yeah, the guys in Priest are all old and aging fast but age is just a number. You’re never too old to rock n’ roll…. if you wanna rock then do it!
