In this interview (estimated to be from 1986 based on the date of the tape), Blackie is confronted by MuchMusic’s Erica Ehm about W.A.S.P.’s stage show. Lawless is strangely awkward and makes very little eye contact with anyone. It’s the 1980s and so Satanism must be denied. Check it out!

This brief but great clip has MuchMusic’s Terry David Mulligan getting Rob Halford to open up about drugs and Judas Priest’s image. TDM hosted a show called MuchWest, but this was aired on the Power Hour. Summer 1986, (presumably from Expo ’86) and Rob’s got a moustache and slick, long hair! Definitely a look that didn’t stick.
The one VHS tape I’m working on currently spans a period of recordings from about July 1986 to September 1987. This Hear N’ Aid special features a MuchMusic interview conducted by J.D. (John) Roberts. There’s lots of exclusive information in this valuable video, including a tidbit on bands who refused to be in the same project as Spinal Tap!
