During a performance at The Animal House Radio Show, Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford was asked about his departure from the band in 1992.

Rob replied:

“I think I did what many people do in the music world. It’s something funny that happens to the singers. We have a tendency to get out of ourselves and do things that in the end end up taking us back to the places where we should always be.

It’s very ironic that ‘Resurrection’ [Halford’s debut album in 2000] was a kind of bridge that took me back to Judas Priest. I was with Halford, a second project with John 5 and the album with Fight, in all of them I felt very happy to perform.

This is one of the things that, if you are a creative person, will always be looking for new opportunities. And I looked for them and still look for them, I’m very curious about what we can do with other musicians.

But yes, thanks for remembering the ‘Resurrection’. I love that album, it’s wonderful. We all played him a lot. Everyone has done a great job. ”
