Originally formed in 1969, the orginal band split in 1970, before being re-born through original vocalist Al Atkins. He eventually left before the band recorded their first album in 1974 with new vocalist Rob Halford. But it was band's 2nd album 'Sad Wings of Destiny' that brought them to the attention of most of rock world. They have since become one the UK's biggest hard rock bands, even surviving Rob Halford's departure in the 90's.
