JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford was one of guests at a Buckingham Palace party Tuesday (March 1) to honor the British music industry. Regarding the experience of meeting Queen Elizabeth II for the first time, Halford said, "Amazing!!! I shook her hand and chatted with her for five minutes."As previously reported, Queen Elizabeth II met four of Britain's most famous guitarists (QUEEN's Brian May, Jimmy Page of LED ZEPPELIN, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck) at the same party, and for small talk, she asked them: "And what do you do?" Clapton, for one, let the slight slide. "It's great to meet her and it doesn't matter at all that she did not know who we are or what we do. I wouldn't expect her to."
