Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil told Billboard the following:

“I thought this is important, especially for the legacy of Soundgarden, and for Chris‘ legacy. It’s really important now to understand this from the perspective of the fans and to understand Soundgarden as both a current enterprise as well as a posthumous exercise.”

Judas Priest’s Rob Halford also talked to Billboard:

“It’s just another thrill, again, to be nominated, and so quickly because I know sometimes the nominations can get stretched out for quite a long period of time. So to get another one so quickly is wonderful and another great moment for the Priest and for our fans.”

Motörhead‘s Mikkey Dee also chatted with Billboard, despite the fact that him and Phil Campbell were left out of Mötorhead’s nomination:

“In my book, if anyone really deserves to be in that Hall of Fame, it’s Motörhead in so many ways because of the inspiration on thousands of bands.

Even the biggest of the biggest have been so influenced by Motörhead and Lemmy. It’s the real deal. If you talk to Ozzy, he thinks that Motörhead should have been in before Black Sabbath, even.”

He also added the following about him and Campbell getting snubbed:

“That is pure wrong, I would say, and I know Phil will be very disappointed, too. We’ve been carrying the flag for 25 years together, and actually brought Motörhead to what it was. We did 25 years out of the 40. The original band lasted just a few years (Clarke left in 1982, Taylor in 1984 and returned from 1987-92). They started it off, but as Lemmy said himself they wouldn’t have lasted another six months doing that lineup. I don’t think we would’ve been where we are today without the 25 years we spent touring.”
