A statement has been released from Judas Priest, addressing rumors that have popped up online about possible issues they’ve been having with their management, which was probably responsible for this embarrassment.
“There has recently been some nonsense and propaganda posted on the Internet, including on Rob [Halford]‘s Web site, regarding the band and management. (Rob currently is not controlling his web site and absolutely does not agree with the comments).
“We refuse to get drawn into any public arguments — it is below us and will be dealt with legally. The band have always jointly made any major decisions and have been with the same management team for over 25 years. Everyone knows and respects them in the music business and we have ultimate faith and trust in the way they have always guided us.”
Judas Priest say they’re trying to concentrate on their tour, “and the reactions every night have been incredible. The shows have been amazing and we’re having the time of our lives! Our intention now is to travel the world one last time and perform Judas Priest-style heavy metal for all the fans out there. The mood and atmosphere in the band has never been better!”
According to Blabbermouth, the “nonsense and propaganda” referred to in Priest’s statement allegedly involves a bunch of online posts that have since been removed. One claims that Halford’s personal manager, John Baxter, was having issues with the band’s management.
