Pain Forces Rob Halford to Use Wheelchair
Rob Halford has had to quit riding his beloved Harley Davidson motorcycle and swap it for a wheelchair. The ageing Judas Priest frontman was forced to make the change because of a back problem, but he insists it's only a temporary problem and he'll be fit to rock the stage as normal soon. "It's not as evil well, it is evil. I'm in agony right now. But it's just a back injury; it's going to be fixed. The Metal God will be bouncing back and everything will be great," he told Eddie Trunk in a recent interview (via Classic Rock). Halford's back problems may be the reason behind the last-minute cancellation of the premiere for their live concert movie "Epitaph" in London this Friday, documents the show from their last ever world tour. Instead, an alternative screening has been arranged to satisfy fans who have already received tickets. "We'll be holding a screening at the Soho Hotel, London, at 8pm on Friday. Tickets already issued will be honoured and those attending will also receive an advance copy of the DVD," says a statement from the band. "Alternatively, a full refund will be offered by Ticketmaster. We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause." Meanwhile, Priest are busy working on a brand new studio album with new guitarist Richie Faulkner who says "it's shaping up really well." Watch the "Epitaph" concert trailer here:
