.....still, nothin' like the moment I played for the first time "Sin After Sin" vinyl LP on my turntable back in 1977. No one sounded like JP. Kept the faith since. The new tour will be epic.

I think it would be a lot cooler to name the record Negrodamus. But hey, that's just me ;)

^Lol Nostradamus is a cooler title but Negrodamus would be a hillarious tribute to Chapelle. Thats what the next SOD album should be titled.

If Judas Priest ever did anything in tribute to a has-been like Dave Chappelle, I'd shxt a green Honda Civic. And then I'd quit listening to Priest.

Broken Face, you are a jacka$$! Priest is legendary, and phenomenal. What the fukk do you call good musik? Judas Priest is mandatory metal listening. I have respect for Rob Halford, and think he is the BEST metal vocalist alive today. You seem to be homophobic, it simply means that you possible have homosexual desires, that are hidden..haha

Post 24.... best post ever! hahahah. No idea what you said, but woo, Judas Priest! mad! hahah. Rock on.

Broken Face had a point. At least, about the ex-vocalist, anyway. He is a homosexual, after all. But at the same time, Halford is basically the most amazing singer I've ever heard. You can train yourself to do death growls, but a voice like Halfords, that's a gift, man.

Yeah - I did get fukkin' emotional...sorry about that. I am just tired off people baggin on Halford because he is gay. It doesn't change the fact, at least in my mind, that the man is a legend, and arguably the best vocalist I have ever heard. He also seems to be a great guy. Who gives a fukk what his sexual preference is.....Rob is still the METAL GOD...to me. Judas Priest happens to be my favorite metal band..so I get a little steamed when imbeciles make stupid comments specifically directed at Halford. I had my say...thanks again. Enjoy the fukkin' weekend!
