JUDAS PRIEST Management Co-Ordinator Jayne Andrews has issued a rather unconvincing statement in response to the interview with Rob Halford that originally appeared in the French edition of Rock Hard in which Halford shot down Tim "Ripper" Owens' alleged accusations of Rob having returned to playing traditional metal for commercial reasons. Says Andrews: "Just a note about a certain article that is doing the rounds - please remember that things can be taken out of context or things can be said but when read come across very differently - Ripper is very respectful of Rob and has always been a great fan of his, so nothing was meant by any comments he may have been quoted as making. Rob is aware of this as much as we are!"
