Rob Halford of Judas Priest is the latest artist to do Spin's 5 Albums I Can't Live Without. Here's what he chose:
Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath. " Everything we love about Sabbath, and everything we love about metal is in the first Black Sabbath album."
Queen - Queen II. "The Queen II album is a real adventure because it’s the second one in what would become an expansive landscape of their ability as musicians. They refused to be put in a box and they showed they could do anything and everything that they wanted with music."
Pantera - Cowboys From Hell. "Pantera had dropped Cowboys From Hell which, again, was a definitive game changer. Dime [Dimebag Darrell] became as important to guitar players as Iommi, as Hendrix, and as Randy Rhodes."
Tool - Undertow. "I love Tool because I love to put my headphones on and get lost in their imagination."
Dio - Holy Diver. "My mate, Ronnie James Dio, will always be an inspiration to me every single day of my life."
