JUDAS PRIEST’s IAN HILL – “I Don’t Agree With The Idea That Rock Is Dead”

In a new interview with The Korea Times, Judas Priest bassist Ian Hill disagreed with the notion that “rock is dead.”

"I don't agree with the idea that rock is dead or anywhere near. In my experience, the festivals that we play at are better attended than ever and there are more young faces in the audience than old ones, so there is a great future for rock and heavy metal," he responded.

Judas Priest is promoting their Firepower World Tour and will perform in Seoul, South Korea on December 1st at Blue Square.

Greece's Rockpages has released a new interview conducted recently with Judas Priest bassist, Ian Hill. In the following excerpt, Ian discusses Glenn Tipton - who has taken a step back due to his battle with Parkinson's disease - and the band continuing without him as a full member of the band.

"That remains to be seen. But, there is no reason why we shouldn’t. Glenn is still mentally fine. All his mental powers are in place. So, there is no reason why the song writing team at least shouldn’t carry on. There is no reason why it shouldn’t. Glenn’s problem for the most part is the stamina part of things. He only gets up for three or four songs and for those 10-15 minutes he is fine. His playing is fine. So, there is no reason we shouldn’t continue. There is no reason why we shouldn’t make another album. And there is no reason why Glenn shouldn’t be at least on the writing team and play its part. That’s all possible. At the moment of course."
