Dating a former priest
In 2017, Judas Priest began to work on another studio album with Halford. Halford has performed as the vocalist for Black Sabbath for three shows.He replaced Ronnie James Dio for two nights in November 1992, when Dio elected not to open a show for Ozzy Osbourne.He is famous for his powerful wide-ranging voice and his trademark leather-and-studs image, both of which became iconic in heavy metal.In addition to his work with Judas Priest, he has been involved with several side projects, including Fight, Two, and Halford.Detective Inspector Jon Gross of Sussex Police said: "The past has caught up with Jonathan Graves."The evidence in this case has revealed how he used his position as a reverend to select his victims and befriend them before callously abusing them for his own sexual gratification."His crimes have had a lasting impact upon those he abused.The hurt caused by the sexual abuse itself has undoubtedly been compounded by the psychological scars of the abuser being a trusted and influential figure in each of the victims' lives."I have enormous admiration for the courage the victims have shown in coming forward to the police, and for remaining steadfast in seeing this matter through to conclusion."I hope these verdicts bring some form of closure to them."A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss looked into the case of Jonathan Graves in 2010 as part of a review for the Diocese of Chichester looking at previous concerns about several priests.
He was sentenced at Brighton Crown Court to eight years for two offences of indecent assault on a boy aged 11 to 13 between 19, two offences of indecency with that boy during the same period, and two offences of cruelty against that boy during the same period.
The world tour that accompanied the release marked the band's 30th anniversary.
In 2008, Halford recorded Nostradamus with Judas Priest, and appeared with the band on the Metal Masters Tour.
The song featured music provided by Pantera, although their contribution is uncredited.
After Fight, he collaborated with guitarist John Lowery in an industrial-influenced project called 2wo which was executively produced by Trent Reznor and released on his Nothing Records label.
