As I'm pretty sure you know April, Kk @ Ian Hill, started the band Judas Priest, then they got Rob and Glenn Tipton. I love them all, priest has always been one of my favorites of all time, they are heavy metal Masters. Just like Black Sabbath, agree? Rock on!

Everything after'84 doesn't suck...but like Maiden. ..unfortunat e l y ...there best was then...I do think they wrote more/better songs after '88-'91 than Maiden ...but it's always like that...look @ Metallica... Motley ...Helloween . . . . . . . E v e r y o n e sucks/starts 2 after 5 albums together ...maybe its the relationship s between the band-mates
