Rob Halford says he can't look at the footage of Richie Faulkner performing as his aorta ruptured during Judas Priest's last song at the Louder Than Life festival.
Halford tells Consequence, "I can't look at that yet. I'm still shook up, emotionally. Eventually I'll try to watch the footage, but [Richie] says in his own words when he looked at that footage he sees a dying man, which is basically what it was."
Faulker underwent a 10-hour surgery to repair his aorta, and Halford says that his bandmate is probably itching to play his guitar again. "I've had a couple of conversations with him, and he sounds great. I'm waiting to hear that he's picked up the guitar -- he's probably picked up the guitar already and his doctors are saying, 'Put that guitar down!'"
