Just got permission from Judas Priest’s management to use three lines of ‘Breaking the Law’ as character dialogue in my fourth heavy metal fairy tale (The Robotic Badger of Doom – part one)
How awesome is that! ROCK!
Previously I got permission to use a few lines of Metal Gods as character dialogue in Book 2 (Return to Planet Metal) Initially did it for Ian ‘Nestor’ Reason as he is a massive Priest fan (as indeed I am) so thought it would be fun to try and get a few heavy metal references in, then see if people spot them!
“Oh come now Wizard, all this mayhem over a flying codpiece? Why don’t you just go and find another one, or better still why don’t you just create one, after all you are a Wizard aren’t you? which raised a chuckle from his heavy metal companions.
But the Wizard found it far from amusing. “This is no laughing matter you beard fool, I’ve had every promise broken, there’s anger in my heart” he continued “You don’t know what its like, you don’t have a clue, If you did you’d find yourself doing the same thing too! Now hand it over, my patience wears thin.”
Many thanks to Jayne Andrews from Judas Priest’s management team for being so obliging.
