News:
Judas Priest Singer Brights Fight Days To Film

Fight was only together for three years (1993-95) and two albums, but it still holds a warm place in frontman Rob Halford’s heart.

“Everything clicked. Everything connected,” recalls Halford, 56, who formed Fight after leaving Judas Priest — which he re-joined four years ago. “I think there was maybe an assumption I was just gonna be Rob Halford, but I really wanted to make a band and give it a band name and let me be the singer of a brand new band.”

And while Halford is preparing for the release of Priest’s next album — a concept piece about the life of Nostradamus — in 2008 — his Metal God Entertainment has rolled out “Fight: War of Words — The Movie,” a documentary about the formation and history of the band. The DVD edition also includes concert footage and promotional videos.

Halford is hoping that even as Priest commands most of his, and his audience’s attention, the film will at least remind fans of Fight’s merits.

“People are saying, ‘Is Fight going to re-form?’ “ Halford notes. “I just never say never. I don’t see any reason to say ‘absolutely not.’ Rock ’n’ roll is full of people saying they’re never gonna get back together again — the Eagles being a perfect example.

“So you just don’t know. From a personal point of view, I think it would be a lot of fun to do another Fight show. So we’ll see.”



“Fight: War of Words — The Film” will be shown at 8 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 28) at the Emagine Canton theater, 39535 Ford Road. Group members Jay Jay and Brian Tilse will attend and sign autographs. Tickets are $15. Call (888) 319-3456 or visit www.emagineentertainment.com.
