Rob Halford Says Judas Priest Have Been In Contact With K.K. Downing And Les Binks Regarding Upcoming Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction

During an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford revealed that the band have been in contact with former members K.K. Downing and Les Binks regarding their upcoming induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. It is still unclear if the duo will perform with the band, but they will be involved in some shape or form.

Halford said the following:

“Everybody’s been very cool and agreeing. There’s just been [an attitude of], ‘Let’s just relish this opportunity and jam and put everything on 11.'”

He also added:

“We are gonna play live because there is all this roar: How are we gonna do it? Because we want to try and make the best things happen. So the best things to happen are to bring in all of the people that are included in the induction — which includes, obviously, K.K. and Les, and Dave. So, we’ve been able to work things out, so we will be playing live. We’ve got, like, eight minutes and 24 seconds and a half-second to play live.

We’ve got a couple of cool things that are gonna take place on the night that will be held under wraps like most people do because you don’t want to give everything away. But yeah, look: A bunch of guys from the U.K., from the West Midlands, a Birmingham band of heavy metal, is being inducted into this great institution. So we’re gonna make the most of it and have a great night out and live a lot of metal memories.”

The induction ceremony will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 5.
