What's yours is mine and what's mine is mine too
Read the quote from that same article about Dio. She has no notes for him and praises his technique. Her comments about Halford are actually saying that she wishes she could teach him how to sing better. Point Dio, as always.
Initial reaction to Rob Halford: "Last guy is super talented and the only one I really wish I could get my hands on. He demonstrates several mad skills, but they aren't well-integrated. It doesn't matter so much because he is so committed, expressive, and musical, but I could have helped him do it easier and better"
Yes, she is saying she could make him better, also in the sense that he has the most potential of the five. Halford was always a bit raw and just pushes and pushes himself, out of his comfort zone. What I read into her comments, is that Halford has towering technical potential he doesn't quite reach - Not that he's the least skillfull of the bunch. Dio is one of my favorite vocalists ever, but I can't quite say I've ever heard him outside of his (vast) comfort zone. His mid range singing is ridiculously powerful though, and if that alone was being compared, I'd take him every day.Read the quote from that same article about Dio.

That's a completely different style of singing though, than what he applied in the 70's. Which is also what I love about Halford. He has reinvented himself countless of times.The song she heard was from Priest’s second album, though, and I think he got better as the years went by, culminating with Painkiller.
