Dolly Parton is class personified. Just had to throw that out there.

Also, if you didn't join Priest until after Painkiller, you had no business being inducted, so while the "newer" members have all done their jobs well to varying degrees, none of them had anything to do with Priest getting to the HOF.

That's a class of two:  the guy who replaced Halford for a couple albums that weren't well-received and Richie Faulkner, who joined only a decade ago and has played on only two albums.  Both are no-brainers for not being part of the inducted group.  And, frankly, the inclusion of Les Binks is a bit puzzling (especially when you think about certain glaring exclusions with other artists).

Les Binks is in, and yet:

Eric Carr is out.
Bruce Kulick is out.
Ronnie James Dio is out.
Vinnie Appice is out.

Wow, now I wanna see Dolly do Painkiller :P

She was certainly dressed for it!



When I woke up this morning I think I came to in the wrong parallel universe...

Just to check, these are the lineups of the two biggest bands on the planet, right?

I can't really speak intelligently about the two KISS guys, but Dio not making it is indefensible, and Binks's inclusion renders Appice's exclusion inexplicable (EXCEPT that Priest was inducted under the "musical excellence" (formerly "sidemen") category, where as Sabbath was "officially" inducted).

Carr and Kulick not getting inducted is simply a case of the RARHOF not giving a f*ck about KISS.  KISS was voted in, so they had to put them in.  But, they weren't gonna do any more than the bare minimum, which is a crying shame.  Eric was there for the tail end of the makeup and virtually the entire non-makeup run of the band.  And, Bruce was in the band for 12 years, which is longer than Ace's original run in the band.  But, KISS wasn't gonna be given any more time than absolutely necessary.  Meanwhile, that same year, the E Street Band had 10 people inducted and each one was allowed to speak.  The speeches lasted like a half hour.  Patty Fucking Scialfa is in the RARHOF.  And, Eric Carr and Bruce Kulick are not.  What a joke!

How is his health?
How is Glenn?
How far away is the new album and was Glenn able to contribute any guitar work on it?

EXCELLENT question!!! I second that!

What's it like playing Glenn's solos since he's stopped touring?  I haven't seen a lot of live stuff but he plays everything pretty true to the record but changes things here and there too.  Does he feel a duty to Glenn to play the solos in a certain way and as true to form as possible or has Glenn given his blessing to kind of do what he wants with them?

 What are some of his personal favorite Priest songs that he would like to play live that he hasn't gotten to play yet?

I assume the interview is based around Elegant Weapons.

My question would be..Ronnie Romero..why?

I'm not sure how to tactfully ask, but Romero turns up on so many projects..

I guess I'd ask, how did Romero get involved?
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

I forgot that was a thing actually to be honest.  Yeah, you're right though, the interview would be about that band.

The issue is that he's on every fucking album being released. To me, using the "vocalist du jour" takes away from the specialness of a project.
He's a good vocalist, but not so pleasurable to warrant his participation in all of the albums he's on, at least in my opinions.

This is me.  It doesn't help that I wasn't 100% thrilled that he was the guy for the Rainbow shows - though he did a good enough job - but he didn't blow me away.  His voice just doesn't quite have the character that Ronnie's or JLT's did, so he was always sort of a "second best" option for me from the get go.  Now he's on MSG records and a hundred others and I'm like, ENOUGH.

Seems to me there aren't a ton of them to choose from. Singers with good pipes, experience doing this sort of thing, and with just enough notoriety to show up on people's radar. And singers have a relatively short shelf-life. When guys like him come around they get a lot of work. People like Schenker have always looked for these guys (including Romero). It doesn't seem odd that he's finding a lot of work right now.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

I'm with Kev on Ronnie Romeo. Even though I have heard the name he is a total non-event to me. I'm really not sure why he would be considered to be everywhere.

I did listen to the Elegant Weapons song Do or Die and thought it was great. Really old school metal done well and I enjoyed the vocals.

When you get into the Frontiers roster, chances are you'll be in MANY albums in a short period of time, and Ronnie surely suffers from that. Look at what happened with Jeff Scott Soto, Jeff Pilson, Alessandro Del Vecchio, Reb Beach...all of them are in at least five releases per year, if not more.
