Old School of Metal

Home of Metal recently visited Walsall Local History Centre. Walsall is a few miles north of Birmingham. Rob Halford grew up there and still owns a house in the town that he uses when visiting The Black Country. It was great to get back into the archives after a little while away. Whether or not we use some of the oral histories or photographs held at the centre remains to be seen.

Here is a picture of the school Rob Halford (and Noddy Holder) attended. No. 7828/A in a collection of 10,000+ images.

And we picked up a hardback copy of Mark E Smith’s autobiography for 20p so it was a very worthwhile visit.
