Frontman Rob Halford told us a while back that Priest wouldn't have sustained such a lengthy career without the support of their fans: ["It's an ongoing metal love affair that's been solid and kept us going and motivated, quite frankly. Bands don't exist without the people that support them, and so it is with Priest, y'know? Without our fans we're nothing, so we love our fans dearly, and we do as much as we can to keep that bond strong and solid."] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . . strong and solid)

Rob Halford Thanks Fans For Keeping Judas Priest Going :
