The first metal edition...
In an interview with Billboard , Judas Priest's Rob Halford talked about the band's upcoming Rock Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas, as well as a new album. Halford will be joined by guitarist Richie Faulkner, bassist Ian Hill and drummer Scott Travis. The camp runs from February 27 to March 2 at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Here are highlights:
On the band's Rock Fantasy Camp: "I'm sure some of those Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Campers will be full-on. I will be interested to see if there's some Metal God, Rob Halford lookalikes wandering around Vegas in metal and studs and whatnot -- although. I'm sure you can find that in Vegas on any given day, right?"
On what he could teach: "I think they're just looking for some professional tips and want to hear from the voice of experience. It's one thing to sing in the shower and it's another thing to sing on stage. They're two totally different worlds. So it'll be an opportunity for me to do the best I can to answer questions -- How do you sing this note? How do you manage to scream like that? How do you breathe? How are you able to keep up that type of intensity? I'll try to explain myself as best as possible and give some insight into what it's like to be a metal singer."
On the band's new album: "The writing process is complete. Now it's the painstaking work of making sure that you get every single note, every single nuance of the vocal, every tiny aspect...right. We're still tracking (instruments). It's just a very laborious but enjoyable part of making the record."
