Yep in Argent, especially as Rod Argent and Jim we’re cousins.

Didn't Rodford also play in Argent and Charlie too?

Jim Rodford, bass player, The Kinks, Phoenix (I think?), but I remember him with The Zombies, saw live a while back. RIP

In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Background
With a blood curdling scream Rob Halford resurrects himself with an album that is unadulterated pure heavy metal, the title track rips in to it in true Judas Priest fashion with a fast riff laden simple statement - Rob is back. Great fast punchy riffs from two guitars along with Robs great vocals creates a clean sharp sound, no demonic growling vocals here, you can hear what the lyrics are! With his usual massive range that stays in tune and adds that melodic element to what is without a doubt a vicious sounding voice.


The Songs
Highlights include 'Silent Screams', a great power track starting with a mellow acoustic intro that builds steadily to full power, great time changes as well. Also a 'duet' with Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden fame 'The one You Love To Hate' complete with interesting lyrics. Rob's obviously had a bit of hard time lately since the end of Priest and opening up to his sexuality amongst other things and many of the lyrics reflect this with some pretty strong comments. This just adds to the depth of the songs because it catches a lot of the true emotions.


In Summary
A well-balanced album and a great return to form, doing what he does best with a great support crew. This is not just a Judas Priest rehash but a good modern piece of metal in a classic and well executed method. The only thing missing is the anthem like track towards the end of the album like Priest used to do a la 'Heavy Duty' but then again it's not a JP album and we're all well past the anthem tracks now anyway. If you love real metal, specifically eighties metal then this is for you young boys, enjoy this.

This album is maybe the final chapter of a huge singer's career...Pretty good metal tunes particularly well sung.
