Rob Halford: God Of Metal

In 2008, Rob Halford talked to Classic Rock about his return to Judas Priest and plans for Fight reissues

Rob Halford resigned from Judas Priest to form Fight in July 1992.

The ensuing album, War Of Words, was well named. Halford’s ex-bandmates taunted him for a “disastrous tour and album” when the debut comparatively flopped; the singer dismissed Priest as “tyrannical”. Fight made one further album, 1995’s A Small Deadly Space, before Halford collaborated with Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails on the industrial project Two, re-embracing his metallic roots in the group Halford, then finally reuniting with Priest in mid-2003.
