Priest and Maiden became rivals during the ‘80s as Bruce Dickinson’s band rose through the ranks – but Halford said it was all in good faith.
"My dream had always been to have, like, ‘The Big 4 of the U.K.,'” he told Consequence of Sound, referring to the Metallica,Slayer,Megadeth and Anthrax shows of 2010 and 2011. “I’d always dreamed of Black Sabbath and Motorhead and Priest and Maiden as ‘The Big 4’ doing something in the U.K. Sadly, two-fourths of that has gone, but the music lives forever. That’s the main thing.”
