Ex Judas Priest Frontman Tim "Ripper" Owens will be performing with The Three Tremors this Friday (March 1) at The Chance. Showtime 7:30pm.
Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens went from being a fan, playing in a Judas Priest tribute band to replacing Rob Halford as frontman for Judas Priest in 1996 and recording two studio albums with the band, 1997’s Jugulator and 2007’s Demolition. He also appeared on a couple of live albums. The movie Rock Star starring Mark Wahlberg and Jennifer Aniston was loosely based on Owen’s career. Owens’ other projects include work with Iced Earth, Beyond Fear, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, Charred Walls of the Damned, and Dio Disciples. Owens will be appearing with Three Tremors which also features singers Sean Peck and Harry Conklin. Get out and see this show Friday night at The Chance in Poughkeepsie! I got a chance to hang with "the Ripper" when he played a show with Dio Disciples. A very cool, down to earth dude and one hell of a metal singer. Check out a pic of me with Ripper below.
