Is September too early for Christmas music? What about if it’s METAL? JUDAS PRIEST singer ROB HALFORD has a new Christmas album coming out next month called “Celestial”. And the music video for an original track called “Donner and Blitzen” is already up on YouTube.
This isn’t Halford’s first solo Christmas album. He did one called “Halford 3: Winter Songs” back in 2009. And he recorded a song called “Christmas Ride” with his short-lived band Flight when Judas Priest split up for a while in the ’90s.
Speaking of that split, Whitfield Crane from Ugly Kid Joe recently revealed HE could’ve replaced Halford. The band told him the gig was his if he wanted it, but he said no. So Tim Owens held down the fort for Judas Priest from 1996 to 2003.
