Judas Priest’s Rob Halford rocks Chicago TV

Currently on tour with Ozzy Osbourne, Judas Priest lead throat Rob Halford stopped by WGN-TV in Chicago Wednesday morning for some chat and live performance.

Rob’s band – Halford - is touring in support of its latest album, "Halford IV - Made Of Metal."

The appearance comes a day after Priest announced its final world tour will kick off in 2011.

"Well, they do say that all good things come to an end and that's probably the case in this case,” said Halford. “But I'm delighted that, of course, the Halford band is gonna be storming forward in the metal future, and that's gotta be good news."

"I've been doing this now for close to 40 years and it's a real thrill to think that I'm part of the roots of it all,” he continued. “Not just myself — many, many other people have been responsible for putting the whole heavy metal scene onto the map. It's as strong now as it's ever been."
