    I've always wondered why the kid testified against the band. I guess he was made to feel ashamed of his feelings and needed a scapegoat. Halford always expressed a great sadness about the kids themselves when asked about it, I think it really shook him up.
    The kid didn't testify. He successfully killed himself a couple years before the trial took place. It was the kids' parents. They probably noticed that the kids listened to Judas Priest a lot and thought they could blame them, sue them, then get a bunch of money from them...:(

    And yeah, suicide is always a bad/sad thing, and those kids were Priest's fans. It would be tough to go through someone falsely accusing you for being responsible for the deaths of people

    Whoops, you're right, the kids were dead. Five years after the event, two after the second kids death.

    He OD'd on painkillers (coincidence that JP has a song entitled Painkiller) 3 years after the incident.

    And the wheelchair comment made me lol, yup, I'm a horrible person.

    Blaming someone for influencing a suicide is a horrible thing to do. They didn't sue the medical companies for making painkillers, or the gun companies... Urgh.

    Seriously, no one's seen Bill Hick's bit on the Judas Priest thing? Shame.

    Not a Hicks fan personally, too many dumb weed jokes.

    It basically went along the lines of "What musician wants his audience dead?"
    An then he did a mock British vocal impression of a Judas Priest member, acting sick of their fame, power, and money, and coming up with the solution to their problems (the subliminal message). Funny stuff.

    He has a few funny sketches, so I'll find that one maybe.

    On Pandora I just created channels for ELP, King Crimson, and Yes to get some prg in my selection. And I have to say, i'm really digging ELP ad Yes. King Crimson, not so much.

    I'll look up those on youtube since I can't search them on Pandora. From Yes I've heard Starship Trooper and We Agree and from ELP I've heard Black Moon.

    You said progressive rock wasn't your thing before? Kudos to finding some you like.

    I never said I hated it, I'm just not a prog fanatic like a lot of people here.

    Black Moon is ELP on the end of their career, like the lil hill of accomplishment between two cruddy albums

    wait til you hear stuff off of Trilogy and their self-titled

    Starship Trooper is great. I also have Yes and ELP channels on Pandora :D. I have King Crimson under Progressive Rock along with a bunch of other bands. I was lucky enough for Lizard to come up. That is epic. I'll help with the search: (WMG is a b*tch so YouTube doesn't have anymore studio versions up)

    Yes:
    Go to last.fm or hope you get lucky on Pandora with Yours is No Disgrace, Roundabout, Close to the Edge, and Sound Chaser just to name a few...
    Emerson, Lake, & Palmer:
    Lucky Man, Tarkus, Trilogy, Hoedown, and Karn Evil 9 (specifically First Impression Part 2 to really get you more into ELP)
    King Crimson:
    21st Century Schizoid Man, The Court of the Crimson King, Larks' Tongues in Aspic parts 1 and 2, Red, and Starless

    Also check out more of Jethro Tull, early Genesis, and The Moody Blues

    Of any female vocalist I've heard to date, Annie Haslam of Renaissance is probably the best.
