Judas Priest did not make the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame 2018 inductions as we learned last week. They were edged out by bands like Bon Jovi and The Cars...

Judas Priest vocalist Rob Halford did an interview with Mark & NeanderPaul on 100.7 KSLX Phoenix right after their denial and read the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame CEO Greg Harris' email to Judas Priest concerning the denial.

"Thank you for embracing your nomination for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. While you didn't garner enough votes for induction this year, you were part of a very select group of Hall Of Fame nominees.

Artists are frequently on the ballot multiple times before they are inducted. For example, Black Sabbath were nominated eight times before their induction, Patti Smith seven times, Solomon Burke nine times, and both the Beastie Boys and The Yardbirds were on the ballot three times before their respective inductions.

If you are touring or simply traveling nearby, please visit our museum in Cleveland, Ohio. Our six floors of exhibitions tell the remarkable history of rock and roll and how it changed the world. You're part of that story and we'd love to share it with you.

Again, congratulations on your nomination.

My best, Greg Harris, president and CEO of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame."

Maybe the new Judas Priest album "Firepower" will convince them next year? We'll see...
