Original Judas Priest Singer Al Atkins Talks About Band's Early Days In "Untold Stories"

Birmingham Music Heritage's heritage film called "Untold Stories"looks at the Birmingham, England music scene between 1965 and 1985, the heyday of Brummie pop and rock.

Lots of interviews and clips make this film a unique story told by the people who were there and made the music.

In part 3 of "Untold Stories", which can be seen below, original Judas Priest vocalist Al Atkins, the band's former manager Dave Corke and others discuss Priest's early days.

Atkins is the co-writer of several Priest songs which are included on the band's first two albums, "Rocka Rolla" and "Sad Wings of Destiny", both of which eventually went gold. Atkins co-penned the heavy metal classic "Victim of Changes", which was a combination ofRob Halford's song "Red Light Lady" and Atkins' own "Whiskey Woman". He also co-wrote "Winter", "Never Satisfied", "Dreamer Deceiver" and "Caviar and Meths".
