Rob Halford Reacts to Bruce Dickinson's Priest Diss: 'It's Just the Way It Goes'
Addressing Bruce Dickinson's recent jab at Judas Priest regarding the band's use of autocue, vocalist Rob Halford opted not to raise any tension, reassuring fans that Bruce's comments were hardly ill-willed.

As reported, Dickinson was on a bit of a ranting spree during a recent Guardian chat, saying, "What the f--k is that all about? People pay good money and you can't even remember the sodding words."

"The daftest one I ever saw was 'Breaking the Law'. It's on the f--king autocue. 'Breaking the law, breaking the law/Breaking the law, breaking the law/Breaking the law, breaking the law/Breaking the law' - guess what? - 'breaking the law.' It's ludicrous."

Asked to comment by 107.7 the Bone, Halford stated, "What we British say is it was just a storm in a teacup. I love Bruce. I love Bruce. He's a great friend of mine. And he's very outspoken."

"[He's a] great frontman, a great singer from a great band," Rob added (via Blabbermouth). "And, you know, these things are said in many ways, and I'm sure he didn't mean it in any other way than Bruce sometimes goes off in one of his rants. You know, it's just the way it goes. But, yes, storm in a teacup. Storm in a metal teacup."

During the rest of the original interview, Bruce also dissed punk as "rubbish" music, as well as Glastonbury performers, calling them "wankers wandering around [onstage] as if they had a mirror attached to themselves."
