As Blabbermouth reports, former Judas Priest vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens told in an interview with Talking Metal where he said that he received an e-mail from Judas Priest’s lawyers telling him to stop using the artwork of his two albums with the group – 1997’s “Jugulator” and 2001’s “Demolition” – for solo shows promotion.

Ripper said:

“Yeah, it did happen. It was basically… Someone released a tour poster for one of my solo tours, hey tell me. I love the whole Judas Priest camp and all the guys and management, so when they ask me to do something, I listen.”
