Mastered: Rock musician, singer/songwriter
Rob Halford is a pioneering singer of Heavy Metal band Judas Priest. There have been few vocalists in the history of heavy metal whose singing style has been as influential or recognisable as the lead singer is this Grammy award-winning band.
He told the Guardian recently; "Us being on Top of the Pops was great for heavy metal. We were the first band to go out with that particular look. Once it was there on stage and was being photographed, it just shot around the world. It just looked right – it looked like the music sounded."
It's been 30 years since the release of their definitive album, British Steel, which has been reissued.
