THE ARCHIVE: Rob Halford of Judas Priest letter & signed photo (1980)

Rob Halford sent this photograph and letter to a Judas Priest fan.The photograph shows Rob in full black leather complete with cap, holding a whip. This dramatic look, risqué in its sado-masochistic references, became a staple part of the Judas Priest identity.

The letter, handwritten by Halford states: ” I have one taste in music, it’s simple, “HEAVY METAL”, full stop! “
