Rob Halford Ram It Down Leather Waistcoat

Ram It Down Leather Waistcoat. This history of this waistcoat is not as clear. Rob can’t recall who exactly made this for him, although once again, it will probably have been Ray Brown. The ‘Ram it Down’ album release was followed by the ‘Mercenaries Of Metal 88’ tour. Ray Brown is credited on his site as being the clothing designer for this, and other, Priest Tours. It could have been worn at the Powerhouse, Birmingham 12.06.88, when Priest played there.

Levi’s 501s with patches

These were the jeans I'd always wear to gigs in Manchester in the mid/late 80s, and over time I added patches, bleach, safety pins, etc. Eventually, my mum complained about "the state of them!" and insisted I threw them out. I would go out wearing other jean,s with these jeans in a plastic bag, and would change into them on the train. There are four Black Sabbath patches, one Led Zeppelin, and one Kerrang. I added the beer towel to cover a massive hole I accidenally created with the over-enthusiastic use of bleach.
