JUDAS PRIEST: Upcoming Book Is 'Not True Story' Of Band

JUDAS PRIEST management representative Jayne Andrews has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

"We would like to make it clear to everyone that a book which is due out soon, entitled 'Defenders Of The Faith - The True Story Of Judas Priest' by Neil Daniels, is not an official book and is not approved by the band. We had absolutely no involvement with this book at all and therefore it is most definitely not the true story of JUDAS PRIEST!!"

JUDAS PRIEST is currently recording a concept album about the 16th Century French prophet Nostradamus. In a recent interview with Sweden's Metalshrine, conducted on January 30, 2007, Rob Halford stated about the upcoming CD, "Like any band you go through the difficult stage, which is sitting down, like Glenn [Tipton] and Ken [K.K. Downing] and myself did with guitars and keyboards and go, 'OK, let's start!', but 'Where should we start?' (laughs) 'What part of his life do we do first?' and I think, what we tried to do is actually go on a timeline from when he first discovered these abilities to prophecize and all the other things that he went through in his life. And so, that's the initial challenge and the three of us put together very rudimentary demos fully in every aspect that we want to cover instruments and arrangements and construction and then really the joy that is to replicate those very rough demos to the fully, finished and final and musical pieces. And that's what the guys are doing in England, doing all of that right now and I'll be going over there shortly to lay all my vocal tracks down."
