JUDAS PRIEST's RICHIE FAULKNER Names One Of His Favorite Songs From TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS Era
Richie Faulkner says that "Hell Is Home" is one of his favorite JUDAS PRIEST songs from the Tim "Ripper" Owens era.
The PRIEST guitarist, who joined the band in 2011 as the replacement for K.K. Downing, offered his opinion during a live video chat on October 13.
He said: "I was listening to the Ripper albums the other day, and 'Hell Is Home' is such a great track. It's really heavy and the vocal melody is really great. I think Ripper sings it really well. It's probably one of my favorite PRIEST songs of the Ripper era. 'Hell Is Home' — I really like that."
"Hell Is Home" was included on PRIEST's 2001 album "Demolition", one of two LPs Owens created with the British heavy metal legends before the band reunited with Rob Halford.
In 2020, PRIEST will celebrate its 50th anniversary by embarking on a special tour.
This past summer, PRIEST completed a North American trek with support from URIAH HEEP.
