TIM ‘RIPPER’ OWENS Complains About Being ‘Erased’ From JUDAS PRIEST’S History

Yeah, okay. He wasn’t either my dream vocalist to the mighty Judas Priest. The two albums he recorded aren’t my fave either. But wiping his image out? No, not really fair.

All this because a fan reminded Tim “Ripper” Owens that 1997’s “Jugulator” and 2001’s “Demolition” have been out of print on vinyl for “quite a number of years now” to which he replied:

“Yep. Great to see my time in JP has erased and my CDs and me from their past! Well, I haven’t forgot my past and I will be working on re-recording the studio CDs and releasing them myself! Why not?”

After another fan said record labels are to blame and no the band, Tim replied:

“Well, you can’t buy them or stream them and they aren’t on iTunes. So he said I’ve been erased and I have. Blame whomever you want, but they have never played one of my songs live after I left and you can’t blame the label on that. [three laughing emojis]”

To end all controversies, a fan wrote, “In fairness, Rob can’t hit Tim’s notes,” to which Owens replied:

“He actually can. Rob is singing amazing.”
