In a recent interview by NME, JUDAS PRIEST ‘s Rob Halford said that he had a “diva moment” when he heard that Metallica would be headlining this year’s Glastonbury festival.
Halford says: “I think it’s great, but I did have a bit of a diva moment when I heard. I rang Michael [Eavis] and said I loved it. I love that he’s bringing metal to Glastonbury, but I did say next time he wants to bring metal to Glastonbury, can you make sure it’s British?
“Metallica are our best mates, and I’m thrilled for them. I think when Michael Eavis sees how mad the crowd go he’ll realise metal can work there, and hopefully he’ll book Priest in a couple of years.“
Halford also promises that his band will tour the UK and Europe next year, having started their latest tour in the USA. “We’re doing a bunch of dates there, then having a Christmas break then we’ll play all over the UK and Europe,” he says. “We love coming home. We never forget this is who we are, and Britain is very important to us.“

JUDAS PRIEST are set to unleash their newest album, ‘Redeemer of Souls,’ on July 15, and have already shared the title track with their fans. Loudwire brings you an exclusive preview of the disc’s first official single, ‘March of the Damned’ (watch and listen on Loudwire or below).
We recently had the opportunity to listen to the entire ‘Redeemer of Souls’ album prior to interviewing the band, and let’s just say fans are in for a treat from the Metal Gods. The word “epic” is thrown around too often in the world of music, but Judas Priest’s new album ‘Redeemer of Souls’ is, in fact, truly epic. From Rob Halford’s powerful vocals to Glenn Tipton and Richie Faulkner’s monster riffs and soaring guitar solos, ‘Redeemer of Souls’ takes listeners on a fantastical metal journey from beginning to end.
As for the song ‘March of the Damned,’ Halford tells us, “I’m a huge fan of ‘The Walking Dead’ — I can’t get enough of the show. [While the song is] not about zombies, it’s a bit of a twist on that. When I heard Richie’s riff, it’s rhythmic and it invokes marching.” He adds that the track “has some of the elements we had with ‘British Steel.’”

Loudwire.com reports that Early JUDAS PRIEST guitarist Ernie Chataway has reportedly passed away at the age of 62. The sad news was announced by original Judas Priest vocalist Al Atkins.
Ernie Chataway was part of the very first Judas Priest lineup, which formed in 1969 and also consisted of Al Atkins on vocals, bassist Bruno Stapenhill and drummer John Partridge. After that incarnation of the band broke up, Atkins formed a new version of the band with classic members Ian Hill and K.K. Downing in 1970.
Chataway spent nearly a year in the original incarnation of Judas Priest before going on to play with Earth, Bullion and Ricky Cool and the Icebergs. He was reportedly battling lung cancer in recent years.
According to Blabbermouth, Al Atkins posted the following tribute to Chataway:
Just heard the very sad news that Ernie passed away last night. He was a lovely bloke and a great guitarist and will be sadly missed.
I remember the first time we met at the auditions for a new guitarist for JUDAS PRIEST in 1969 — his looks reminded me of Marc Bolan. When he plugged in his guitar, he totally blew us away, and made [later JUDAS PRIEST guitarist] KK Downing look a complete amateur (who we’d auditioned earlier).
I’m completely in shock and will sadly miss you, my old buddy.
Atkins also tweeted about Chataway’s passing:
Metal Shock Finland’s condolences to the family and friends of Ernie Chataway. R.I.P. Ernie!
