Today we pay tribute to Rob Halford who today turns 60. Happy Birthday Rob!
"Rob" Halford (born 25 August 1951) is an English singer-songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the heavy metal band Judas Priest. He is nicknamed the "Metal God" as a tribute to his influence on metal, and after the Judas Priest song of the same name from 1980's British Steel. He is considered one of the most consistently powerful singers in rock, having possessed a wide vocal range during his prime, and is particularly known for his high-pitched, operatic, soaring screams. In addition to his work with Judas Priest, he has been involved with several side projects, including Fight, 2wo and Halford. He is credited as the first openly gay mainstream heavy metal star, having come out in 1998.
Todays tribute tune "Made of Metal" is the title track from the fourth studio album by the heavy metal band Halford, the solo project of Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford. Produced by Roy Z and recorded during 2009 and 2010. The album was released on September 28, 2010.
