Halford

As the incomparable voice of thrashing beast Judas Priest, Rob Halford defined the role of the metal frontman. After his unamiable departure from the British juggernaut, Halford formed Fight with Priest drummer-come-lately Scott Travis. Fight released three powerful records, Halford straining to remain the masthead of the heavy rock movement he created. Two, a trendy electro-exercise with Trent Reznor, took two steps back on the misguided Voyeurs. Halford returned to his roots and formed a new unit, simply dubbed Halford, with guitarists Patrick Lachman and Mike Chlasciak, bassist Ray Riendeau, and drummer Bobby Jarzombek. Halford rebounded with his band at the turn of the century, releasing the aptly titled Resurrection, a no-nonsense manifesto from a true metal legend. Halford hit the road opening for disciples Queensrÿche and Iron Maiden before beginning a headlining tour, documented on Live Insurrection. In 2002, Crucible arrived quickly after their tour ended, even featuring two bonus tracks that were originally not going to be included. The following year, to the delight of Judas Priest fans, the band reunited with Halford on vocals, and the reinvigorated legends of metal released Angel of Retribution in 2005 and Nostradamus in 2008. During this time, Halford's solo project lay dormant. However, after nearly seven years, Rob Halford returned to recording under his surname in 2009, only to surprise fans by releasing a Christmas album titled Halford III: Winter Songs. Halford and company followed up the next year with Halford IV: Made of Metal, followed by the live recording/concert film Live at Saitama Super Arena in 2011. ~ Doug Stone, Rovi

I've seen JP 6 times starting back in 1982 and saw FIGHT on their debut album. This is by far the best front man of all time!

Halford's gay? Never knew that.

*goes back to listening to song and not caring even a tiny bit what the man's private preferences are*
Report as inappropriate
While Halford is a great vocalist - I would not consider him a top front man at all. He just stands there wailing and has little stage presence. And when you consider his preferences - to me it doesn;t add up to a top lead man. David Lee Roth is the all time best. In the metal genre - Bruce Dickinson is the best hands down.

Whoa! That's where Bobby Jarzombek comes from. He drums on an amazing CD, Arch/Matheos ' "sympathetic resonance" (2011). If you like Fates Warning, check that out. Amazing drumming to amazingly good music.

When Rob came out the reaction was we already knew but we don't care you rock . He is the Metal God and Priest was the first band to claim to be Heavy Metal . Zepplin , Sabbath and Deep Purple consider themselves more or less as hard blues rock bands

All you homophobs are really brave. Sitting behind that keyboard of yours calling out names. Your nobody to mess with I tell you. Bad asses! Except for Ronald. He wants to bang him. Hell, I'm a homophob too. Doesn't change the fact the man is one of the best singers in metal, and rock today.

@Jesus, I went to the concert yesterday at Houston and I can tell you there were at least some 15,000 Priest die hard fans that don't give a friggin damn about Rob's orientation, all they care is that this guy is THE METAL GOD and he came back to say thank you... I don't think you can beat that...

"Heavy rock movement he created"??? Maybe re-create if there could be such a thing. But the Gods of Metal Creation can be traced to none other than Black Sabbath. And Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin surely had their feet firmly planted in heavy rock well before the advent of Priest. (I know EXACTLY what Kraven Gore meant by "too catchy." )

"...Halford straining to remain the masthead of the heavy rock movement he created..." Huh? There was no strain Mr. Stone. Fight was great because Halford was in it! And Kraven Gore's comment about Priest being..."too catchy"? WTF kind of dulled-down post-grunge, slop Metal bullshit statement is that?

Halford is the indisputable Metal God. Period. Anything he does is worth listening to and if you can see him in concert, do it. His voice will remain with you forever. He is that good. F**k, dont tell anybody, but i'd blow him. He earned it. 4 decades of vicious metal. It's Halford for god's sake! Anyone remember Maiden opening up for Priest in 84'? Historical show.

Rob Halford is awesome! Saw him (Judas Priest) in 91 w/ megadeth and testament, and just saw him (Judas Priest) again last year, Nostradamus tour w/ Heaven and Hell, Motorhead, and testament. Havent heard much of the solo stuff, but what I have heard ROCKS.
All you small minded homo-phobes need to STFU! and go somewhere else.

Freddie Mercury was bisexual, not gay. That's beside the point, Rob just rocks period!
