During an interview with Rolling Stone, while the 68-year-old singer remembered his leaving from Judas Priest in 1992, Rob Halford said Judas Priest is the band that means ‘everything’ to him.
“I would probably say that my exit was due to probably the similar circumstances as a lot of my friends, lead singers that I know that went on the same self-journey of discovery,” he said.
“I think it was important for me to do that. Because it’s like that song, ‘You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.’
“Internally, as difficult as it was for me to be away from the band that I lived for, it kind of brought things into perspective and led me back to the place where I felt this is where I need to be. This is the band I need to be in. This is the band that means everything to me.”
