Rob Halford says that JUDAS PRIEST finally getting inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is “a wonderful moment for heavy metal.”

PRIEST will receive the Musical Excellence Award at the fall 2022 event, which will honor EminemDolly PartonDURAN DURANLionel RichiePat BenatarEURYTHMICS and Carly Simon in the Performers category.

In a new interview with Metal PilgrimHalford stated about the honor (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “It’s wonderful. Great things happen in time. Time is a healer. Time is also a moment of growth and memories. And you receive these types of recognitions for the work that you created. And as we’ve said many, many times, this is just a wonderful moment for not only PRIEST but for heavy metal in general in that building, in that Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame experience. And we need to get some more metal in as soon as possible. But for PRIEST, a British heavy metal band, [to get] in an American institution is a very sweet time. I can’t wait to get out there into L.A. in November and be a part of that special night.”

The award for Musical Excellence — which was originally titled the “Sidemen” category when it debuted — is given to artists, musicians, songwriters and producers whose originality and influence creating music have had a dramatic impact on music.
