JUDAS PRIEST FRONTMAN ROB HALFORD ON BRUCE DICKINSON’S TELEPROMPTER CRITICISM: “[IT IS] A STORM IN A METAL TEACUP”

Posted by Dana Category: LATEST NEWS

robhalfordleathersuit Judas Priest frontman, AKA The Metal God, Rob Halford has laughed off Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson’s critcism about him using an teleprompter on stage.

Halford was responding to the Iron Maiden singer’s comments that artists should not have to read their own lyrics from a screen. Dickinson was particularly annoyed by Halford apparently using a teleprompter while singing Priest’s classic Breaking The Law.

But Halford insists the pair are friends and has described the controversy as a “storm in a metal teacup.”

He tells 107.7 The Bone: “What we British say is it was just a storm in a teacup. I love Bruce. He’s a great friend of mine. And he’s very outspoken. He’s a great frontman, a great singer from a great band. And, you know, these things are said in many ways, and I’m sure he didn’t mean it in any other way than Bruce sometimes goes off in one of his rants. You know, it’s just the way it goes. But, yes, storm in a teacup. Storm in a metal teacup.”

Judas Priest release their 17th album Redeemer Of Souls on July 8th.

  1. Halford is in his 60’s , he can’t remember everyword of everysong no matter how classic, just as many of our favorite guitar gods must go back and relearn songs they havent played in a while. The teleprompter is just a safety net. It’s not like he needs to read it word for word. Piss off haters, New Priest album sounds awesome. Support your metal and buy all the new stuff from our classic guys, Priest,Accept,Lillian Axe, Stryper, Death Angel, Def Leppard,Fastway, Metal Church,

  2. So Bruce, I suppose you never had a brain-fart & forgot a lyric here & there? If it makes Rob or anybody else feel comfortable having a teleprompter on stage, so what?! At least Judas Priest don’t use a “Mascot” on stage! 😉
