Hi. Figured I'd join in on this one as my first post also. Back in my younger days, I also played in a band. At that time the heaviest stuff I had heard other than Black Sabbath was some Scorpions and Iron Maiden. Then Priest released the British Steel album which received some airplay here in Montreal, I was hooked! I saw them that summer for the first time and told myself, that's what a metal band should be like. I have bought every single album since then. Judas Priest and Black Sabbath (Tony Iomi) have always been my top bands. I gave up on all the others over the years but those 2 have always been my all time favorites... in that order. Cheers!
