Judas Priest’s Rob Halford Open To Performing With K.K. Downing And Les Binks At Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction

During an interview with Rolling Stone, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford said he would be open to performing with ex-members K.K. Downing and Les Binks at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony. That event will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 5.

Halford said the following when asked if the Hall Of Fame made the right decision by including Les Binks, K.K. Downing, Ian Hill, Dave Holland, Glenn Tipton, and Scott Travis as part of the band’s induction:

“Absolutely, yes. Absolutely. In terms of ticking the boxes of how long you’ve got to be in, and this, that, and the other, yes. Whoever has been attached and related to Judas Priest has had a role to play. I think the significance of the way they’ve chosen these particular musicians is correct.”

He also added the following when asked if he would be open to performing with Downing and Binks:

“Absolutely. As I said before, you’ve got to push aside anything that gets in the way. You’ve got to remove the emotional clutter and just reference this great celebration. Otherwise, if you don’t do that, and you leave the building, a couple of years later you’ll go, “What the hell? Why didn’t we do that?” It’s a few hours, but those few hours last forever.

We’ve seen it time and time again with the Rock Hall. “She’s coming, he’s not coming, why isn’t he coming? He said this, and he said that.” All this drama. The music matters. It’s all about the music. It’s all about the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction.”
