Halford swaps Harley for wheelchair
Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford has swapped his Harley motorbike for a wheelchair as a result of a back problem.
But he says it’s a temporary issue and he’ll be fighting fit very soon.
Halford tells Eddie Trunk: “It’s not as evil – well, it is evil. I’m in agony right now. But it’s just a back injury; it’s going to be fixed. The Metal God will be bouncing back and everything will be great.”
The band have just released Epitaph, the live movie shot during the world tour of the same name, which was planned as their last large-scale world trek. It features new guitarist Richie Faulkner, who replaced KK Downing, and who’ll also appear on the band’s next studio album. View a new clip from the DVD below.
Priest have been forced to cancel the movie premiere which was planned for London’s Forum on Friday. They explain: “We’ll be holding a screening at the Soho Hotel, London, at 8pm on Friday. Tickets already issued will be honoured and those attending will also receive an advance copy of the DVD. Alternatively, a full refund will be offered by Ticketmaster. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.”
