METALFILTER - Priest and Halford to Reunite
July 14, 2003 4:48 PM   Subscribe

METALFILTER: Rob Halford reunites with Judas Priest. "Ripper" Owens, the fan who replaced Halford (inspiring the movie Rock Star), has been a "complete gentleman" about the decision, though opinion of the fans is mixed. Still no hope for a Osbourne/Black Sabbath Reunion, but (on the plus side) also no plans for a Halford reality series.

1987Filter. Judas Priest, Duran Duran, maybe the Pixies, and Garbage Pail Kids. Who'da thunk it?

Rock is dead. Let it rest in peace already. MOVE ON!

The first live show I ever saw was Judas Priest, with Dokken as the opening act. I was 15.

Halford's gay. I still find this amusing when I reminisce about certain metalheads from high school.

Rob Halford is GAY?!?!?! But...but...he wore all of that bitchin' leather, and the chains, and the...oh, wait.

Never mind.

Suddenly I have a mental image of Beavis and Butthead headbanging and singing "Breakin' the law, breakin' the law!" Not a big fan of Priest but hey, rock on.

If you live in San Francisco and you read the Sunday Chronicle, then you've probably played "Pink Section Time Machine" with your friends. This weeks entrants included John Cougar, Eddie Money and "The Doors of the 21st Century."

Then there's always Konocti Harbor, where melted stars turn to liquid.

Wacky site, I'm gonna link it up
I ain't too bright, but I'll never double up
Lookie here, I'm hittin post and kinda proud
It'll be on top until it's time for the Euro crowd
If you think I'll sit around as the world goes by
You're thinking like a fool, cause it's a case of post or die
Another Iraqfilter post simply can't be bad
If you think I'll let it go, you're mad
You've got another thread coming
You've got another thread coming

That's right, take it to Metatalk
Listen mister next there'll be some grammar mocked
Drive hard, calling all the shots
We've got ace cameras and you don't
If you think I'll sit around while they chat in #mefi
Listen, I ain't fooling, and you'd better listen why
Another Bushbash thread simply can't be bad
You think I'll let it go, you're mad
You've got another thread coming

*Reads Stavros' Song*

*Starts Banging Head*

*Slips Disk and is Rushed to Hospital*

Man, being into metal was lots easier twenty years ago. Anyhow, very funny lyrics, STWC.

"Still no hope for a Osbourne/Black Sabbath Reunion"

Uhhh ... they did re-unite, as is noted in the link. I saw them at Shoreline a couple years ago at Ozzfest. Incredible. Sounded even better than they did way back when.
