Rob Halford is a heavy metal icon and his influence on the genre is immeasurable. Bands such as Anthrax, Pantera, Slayer and Metallica have cited Rob Halford and Judas Priest as a major inspiration on their own music. This book isn't about Judas Priest as such, though it inevitably touches on the subject, but rather Halford's varied solo music.
Made Of Metal explores the solo music of one of the greatest singers of all time. From Halford's first post-Judas Priest project Fight through to his controversial collaboration with Trent Reznor with the album Voyeurs right up to his metal rebirth with his self-titled band, Halford, this handy guide celebrates Halford's creativity and love of all things heavy metal.
From the author of the acclaimed The Story Of Judas Priest – Defenders Of The Faith, Rock Landmarks – Judas Priest's British Steel and Dawn Of The Metal Gods – My Life In Judas Priest And Heavy Metal (with Al Atkins), Made Of Metal is the first book to exclusively explore the solo music of the Metal God himself, Mr. Rob Halford. Made Of Metal celebrates Halford's musical legacy and offers titbits of information and trivia about his career as well as a biography, discographies, a timeline, reviews and tributes from leading musicians and music writers. There are also many previously unpublished live photographs of the heavy metal icon.
Made Of Metal is essential reading for Rob Halford fans.
"Made Of Metal is a excellent guide to the long, sometimes magnificent, sometimes frustrating, sometimes downright horrible solo career of the Metal God."
Joshua Wood – Metal-Rules (www.metal-rules.com)
"Very much something of an expert on all things Priest-related this marks (by my reckoning) Neil Daniels' fourth book concentrating on either the band itself or its individual members. Whilst not by any means a biography like his excellent Defenders of the Faith from a few years back, this handy guide focuses on the solo work of the Metal God, Rob Halford."
Dean Pedley – Sea Of Tranquility (www.seaoftranquility.org)
"an interesting subject, as the path chosen by Halford and his musical output in between his Judas Priest commitments is a mysterious one to many fans, maybe aside from the JP hardcore."
