Judas Priest: “We Love Fluffy Bunnies”
PETA, People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals, sent the Priest a letter, um… ages ago, asking if they wouldn’t mind awfully changing ‘Leather’ for it’s synthetic, and less harmful to fluffy bunny wabbits, substitute ‘Pleather’.
An official statement from the band’s management states: “The members of Judas Priest are all animal lovers, and none of them condone any kind of cruelty to animals. Their stage clothes are not made from real leather – they are made from synthetic material.”
And Metal Hammer can reveal that singer Tim ‘The Ripper’ Owens may even have a pet hamster called Hammy.
