I’ve been rawking to this quite a bit lately … and I will stop at nothing to find Judas Priest’s Rocka Rolla on vinyl. The album was released in 1974, back when Rob Halford and the crew were more hippie-dippy than motorcycle gang-bangy.
This clip comes from the band’s 1975 appearance on the BBC’s The Old Grey Whistle Test—sure to make you forget Halford ever sported spikes, yet realize what a huge influence Priest had on rocka and rolla.

Bob Dylan just released a … how can I put this … creepy Christmas album, so why not … Rob fucking Halford?! Yes, that Rob Halford—Judas Priest Rob Halford—is releasing Winter Songs on Metal God Records, a tender homage to the holidays … it’s actually about as tender as an overcooked turkey leg.
Listen and watch “Into the Spirit” here. So bad it’s … no, it’s really bad.
