Judas Priest’s Rob Halford Celebrates 67th Birthday In Michigan!
Since 1969, Judas Priest has been rocking in one form or another. When bassist and founding member Ian Hill was dating Rob Halford's sister in the 70's, Halford was welcomed to the group. The Godfather of screaming heavy metal was born!
Sp many years and a few lineup changes later, Halford and Hill still maintain the Judas Priest name and thundering sound. Absent were drummer Dave Holland and guitarists KK Downing and Glenn Tipton, who suffers from Parkinson's disease and left earlier this year.
Even with the newer members in place, Judas Priest still put on an amazing show! Pounding out favorites like "Breaking the Law," "Hell Bent For Leather," and "Painkiller'," they drove their driving sound into the ears of fans at the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort under a full, red moon.
Deep Purple headlined later in the evening. That story to follow.
