JUDAS PRIEST WINS THEIR FIRST GRAMMY
Tonight, Judas Priest won their first Grammy ever, for their live version of "Dissident Aggressor," from A Touch Of Evil Live. Singer Rob Halford and drummer Scott Travis were two of the only rock and rollers to show up to the pre-telecast. Rob was definitely happy to win. He said, "Judas Priest has been making heavy metal around the world for 35 years. We love what we do."
I didn't vote for the song, because it is a live version of a song that was originally on 1977's Sin After Sin. Great song, but I hate when they nominate old songs. I voted for Megadeth's "Headcrusher." But I'm not mad, I'm glad to see Rob and the guys win. I'm not a huge fan, but I've had the privilege of interviewing Rob, and he's a great guy who I have a lot of respect for.
