The Traveling Priest
The original Judas Priest band was called Power Trio, which included K.K. Downing, Ian Hill, and John Ellis. Al Atkins approached them about joining the band and once in, he suggested the name Judas Priest. If the name was kept as Power Trio, would the band have as much success as they did with Judas Priest?
Their rehearsals took place at Atkin's mother in law's house. Luckily, there was a good relationship between Atkin's and his mother in law or where were they going to rehearse? There first gig was performed at St. John's Hall, Essington, South Staffordshire.
In 1974, the debut album Rocka Roller was released, which did not get any recognition by anyone. The next album was Sad Wings of Destiny, which did a little better. As they released more and more albums, they became more and more popular.
They finally reached their high point in the 1980s with many hit albums and radio and MTV success. Over the years, members have come and go, but Judas Priest has been able to keep producing great albums.
Judas Priest has been known for playing at a faster pace than most rock bands and has brought a more metallic sound to their music. Few bands have ever been able to play at their speed and ferocity. MTV.com has named Judas Priest as the second most influential band in heavy metal.
Judas Priest was reunited in 2003 and was very successful with their concert tours. Now they will be coming to Las Vegas at the The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel in October. With a successful reunion thrusting them forward, Las Vegas should be ready to host a great heavy metal band that few bands could match.
