During the late 70's and early 80's, Judas Priest visited Corpus Christi on a yearly basis.  I think they really loved the high energy, hard rocking fans there.  My first Priest show was during the "Stained Class" tour.  Seeing Rob Halford start the show by belting out "Exciter" was amazing.  These guys never put on a bad show.  They kicked our butts every time they visited our city.  Over the years I photographed shows during the "Hell Bent for Leather" tour, the "British Steel" tour and the "Screaming for Vengeance" tour.  After the "Screaming for Vengeance" show I got invited backstage by some radio friends where I met the band.  They were all really cool dudes.  Contrary to rock star legend, Rob Halford wasn't boozing it up with alcohol.  He was having an after show glass of milk.  To this day the Priest remain my favorite heavy metal band.
