It's a real laugh. The journalists that have asked me about this in America are all bent out of shape; they were expecting something real and substantial; and like a lot of things out of Hollywood, it's just fantasy. I think the reaction to the movie is quite affectionate because it shows just how much they think about the whole incident - me leaving this incredible metal band, then somebody replacing me. People were expecting more of a reality based movie."

 

Being called a 'metal god' is nice — Elvis was only the King! When I look back at what I've been part of, it's very satisfying. But life's a continuing process.

 

Rob formed two bands in Phoenix, the hardcore Fight in the mid '90s and the experimental Two in the later half of the decade. But in 1999, Rob had a "resurrection", returning to his metal roots with his namesake Halford. To get back to the street level connection with the fans and the music, Rob moved his U.S. residency from his mansion in Phoenix to an apartment on 6th Avenue in the Hillcrest suburb of San Diego, California's Balboa Park district (actually about two blocks from the Park Manor Hotel where the band worked on writing Crucible in Room 303 - hence the title of the opening track.

 

One night in 1981, Rob made a guest appearance with Surgical Steel for a couple of Priest numbers and laid a special announcement on those in attendance: not only did he love the people of Phoenix, he loved the city so much that he was going to make it his home! It wasn't until six years later in1987 that Rob officially made the Arizona desert his new home, purchasing a large house in the hills of the Lincoln Heights subdivision of Paradise Valley, an upscale suburb of the Greater Phoenix area.
