Former HALFORD/RIOT drummer Bobby Jarzombek has posted the following message on his web site:
"What's up? I know, I know, the time between my updates keeps getting....um... longer. -) Anyway, the last few months have been quite eventful in more ways than one so let me catch you all up on everything.
"The most exciting news — to me, anyway — is that my drum video, 'Performance & Technique', is in the process of being converted to DVD and has been accepted by one of the largest instructional video distributors, which should make it more convenient for some of you to pick up a copy if you haven't done so yet. The DVD will include a few bonus segments - 1) live footage from behind the drumkit, 2) drum (sound) check footage, 3) picking out cymbals at Paiste, and maybe even a photo gallery. For those of you who have bought the VHS version of 'Performance & Technique' — I will work out a program where you can purchase the DVD at a very good discount if you would like to upgrade. Watch this space for further details.
"On a sadder note — as most of you undoubtedly know by know, the HALFORD band has come to a halt and Rob is once again fronting the mighty JUDAS PRIEST, which is where a lot of fans have been wanting to see him. Rob has not totally closed the door on the HALFORD band but the best you can hope for at this point is for one or both of the proposed live DVD's from various shows to surface sometime in the near future. Needless to say, I wish Rob only the best, and as much as I was looking forward to creating a third HALFORD studio album with him, Metal Mike, Roy Z, and Mike D., this recent turn of events affords me the opportunity to pursue new projects and collaborate with other musicians, which I am very excited about.
"Playing in HALFORD for the last 3+ years was an awesome experience, and the time that the band spent together in rehearsal, recording, and touring were some of the best times of my (musical) life. I'll always be proud of what we accomplished on 'Resurrection', 'Live Insurrection', and 'Crucible', and as a leader, Rob has been the greatest to work with. He respected each band member's musicianship and always encouraged us to play what we felt was right for the song. That's all you can ask for when you're playing with a legend like Rob who has done and seen it all."
