Ripper Owens Talks About Priest And Iced Earth
Band Photo: Iced Earth (?)
ex-JUDAS PRIEST throat TIM "RIPPER" OWENS explained the differences between working in Priest and now ICED EARTH, "Well, I had a great time in Priest. The only difference may be that now I can hop in my car for four and a half hours and actually see Jon. I have a great relationship with him, and I've always had a great relationship with the guys in Judas Priest. I didn't get to write, and that was a downfall. Basically though, the biggest problem for me was we weren't busy enough in Judas Priest." The lack of work was financially challenging for Owens, "...You had to figure that I was under a contract where I wasn't supposed to do anything else. Even if I was able to, I never knew when Priest was gonna start working again. If I had decided at some point that I wanted to do a solo record, I never knew when Priest was gonna get back together and start working. It was just a hard thing to do. I was fine with it though because it was just such a great time. We were such good friends, and we all got along so well that it never really bothered me until maybe this past year. That's probably when I first started trying to figure out just what in the hell was going on with that, but it never did hurt our friendship."
