Robert John Arthur Halford was born August 25th, 1951 in Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire, England and raised in Walsall, England. Rob met Ian Hill through Halford’s sister, and eventually teamed up with Hill, K.K. Downing and Glenn Tipton in the band Judas Priest.
He was the lead singer for Judas Priest for 20 years — from 1971 until 1991 — before leaving to form the group Fight. Halford then went on to form the short-lived Two project which disbanded after releasing its debut album. He then created a project called Halford, which released its first CD, “Resurrection,” in 2000.
The singer reunited with his former band Judas Priest in 2003 and released the “Angel Of Retribution” album in 2005, followed by a world tour which marked the band’s 30th anniversary. In 2008, the band recorded “Nostradamus” and took part in the Metal Masters tour.
Judas Priest announced that they were embarking on a massive farewell tour in 2011, including a U.S. run of dates which will also feature opening acts Black Label Society and Thin Lizzy.
From all of us here at Braingell.com we wish you the happiest of birthdays, Rob!!
