As the incomparable voice of thrashing beast Judas Priest, Rob Halford defined the role of the metal front-man. 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, (ex-Juggernaut and Riot). 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 Queensryche and Iron Maiden, before beginning a headlining tour, documented on Live Insurrection.
