Rob Halford's Ex-Manager Goes After Judas Priest

(Rock News Desk) Rob Halford's ex-manager is suing his former client and the rest of Judas Priest for $50m just months after he caused controversy by calling them "leaches".

John Baxter had worked with the singer since 1982 until being dismissed a day after he posted comments on Halford's website in August, calling into question the behaviour of Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton, and connecting discontent with the departure of axeman KK Downing at the end of 2010.

Baxter was sacked in a lawyer's letter which accused him of trying to prevent Halford from touring the US by withdrawing his sponsorship of the singer's work visa. Now the former manager says he's owed millions as a result of breached contracts. A lot more details and a music lawyer's view on the validity of the case
