(Classic Rock) Metal God Rob Halford says he is pleased that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is becoming more diverse and adds that it would be "a real treat" if Judas Priest were inducted.

Priest have been eligible for the Rock Hall since 1999 - 25 years after the release of their debut album Rocka Rolla. NWA, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Steve Miller and Chicago were inducted at this year's ceremony and Halford believes the "controversial" Rock Hall has become more diverse in recent years.

Halford tells KBAD 94.5FM: "We got a Grammy a few years ago, which was highly unexpected and a tremendous thrill. And the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, you know, is a controversial entity.

"It's not like the Baseball Hall Of Fame or the NFL Hall Of Fame. Those incredible institutions have very little discourse going on in them. Music - much like sports - is very passionate, and I think the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame has been getting more diverse now, which I think it should.

"Because a musician is a musician is a musician, and, again, if you've been able to make an indelible mark with what you do, to be recognized for that, I think, is a great honor. And if and when that day comes, I think that will be a real treat." Read more here.
