Studded leather and the diary of a mad man

Lots of great pieces have been added to the Home of Metal digital archive recently. Including Judas Priest stage costumes, direct from the band themselves. How they manage to perform in those is beyond us. There’s also a handwritten letter to a fan from Rob Halford, where he passionately declares his love for all things METAL, a gig journal from the most devoted Sabbath fan the Home of Metal team have met yet and handwritten lyrics from Ozzy’s ‘Diary of a Madman’ loaned by the album cover artist Krusher.

It’s so exiting to see these pieces from music history alongside precious fan memorabilia. And we want more! Upload images of your ticket stubs, photographs, prized records or tell us about your Heavy Metal memories and be part of this global music archive. To find out more, go here .
