JUDAS PRIEST's ROB HALFORD: 'This Is Going To Be The Most Extreme OZZFEST Ever'

On Track Magazine has posted a report from yesterday's Ozzfest 2004 press conference, including photos and questions/answers involving some of the bands that are set to participate, among them OZZY OSBOURNE, JUDAS PRIEST and SLIPKNOT. Check it out here.

When asked what led to the band's decision to tour with Ozzfest as opposed to doing their own headlining tour for the reunion, JUDAS PRIEST frontman Rob Halford answered, "Well it's a really special event. I mean, everybody wants to be there so they have an opportunity. It's a real thrill to be back together as a complete band and I think this is a wonderful way to bring us back to the United States. And then the thing about Ozzfest and the way the show is put together by Sharon and Ozzy — it's a very cool thing to do, y'know? There's always this broad cross-section of intense bands of all different talents from all different generations and I think this is going to be the most extreme Ozzfest ever in terms of crossing the board of all different definitions of metal music. From the intensity of what SLAYER is to the classic metal of PRIEST and OZZY and so on, so this is the best of the best for metal right now."
