Yay, it's another list! This one was put together by Rob Halford, "The Metal God" of Judas Priest. He said that when he was growing up there were few, if any heavy rock bands, and certainly no heavy metal. Halford says there were 10 albums the "changed his life" and chief among them is The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Electric Ladyland. He is also a fan of Led Zeppelin II, saying it contains the "roots of heavy metal. When I heard the riffs that Jimmy Page was doing, I got a real sense of where things were going. Even though Led Zeppelin never expressed, 'We've got some heavy metal in us,' it's quite apparent that it was there all along."
Here is the rest of Rob's list of faves:
Cream - Disraeli Gears
The Beatles - Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars
King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King
The Rolling Stones - Get Yer Ya-Ya's Out
John Mayall - Blues From Laurel Canyon
Alice Cooper - Billion Dollar Babies
Queen - Queen
