It’s been 50 years and Judas Priest is still making new music.
According to Rob Halford, “”I’m old school. We had one great big writing session last March for this new record that we’re still working on. And what I mean by that is Glenn [Tipton, guitar] and Richie [Faulkner, guitar] and myself at Glenn‘s beautiful studio. And that’s the way I personally write. I’m very spontaneous in my writing. Even before the lyrics and the melodies start, I’m there with Glenn and Richie, and I’m inspired and motivated by what they’re doing…. What I’m saying is as far as the place that all musicians enjoy — being creative, being in a room with your bandmates and making a song and going, ‘Oh, man. I can’t wait for the fans to hear this.’ ”
