You can already see him leaning forwards in the Priest...Live! DVD from 1986 (particularly during Love Bites), so I guess it helps him reach high notes better, especially nowadays when his voice isn't that strong anymore.

Rob's vocal peak was relatively short, he was doing well in the late 70s but then the heavy drinking took the best edge out of his voice by the mid-80s (although he was still extremely good). But after he went sober in early 1986, he seemed pretty much from another planet on the Turbo and especially Ram It Down tour. However, by then he was nearing his forties so he started to lose a bit of his voice because of age from then on, you can already hear him struggle a bit in the Painkiller shows.

 I was watching the Judas Priest DVD Live vengeance 82 and if you're reading this you already know it's a good, high energy level performance, BUT... watching it made me think about Rob Halford's current singing style. His voice is still the same, but his singing posture isn't. On Live vengeance DVD you can see Rob singing chin up and shoulders back, chest held high, and nowadays it seems he likes to sing in a leaning forwards posture. I'm not a singer myself and was wondering is there any "secret" in that. Rob of course is an unusual singer, so, an unusual singing posture kind of makes sense, but... could somebody who knows more about singing tell me a bit more about this...?
