Play My Game S'V/STEAVHAV 1ER Ex-Judas Priest screamer's all-star solo debut.
Tim Owens is still thc metal fan who's living a dream. First plucked from a Judas Priest tribute act to join the real thing, then he fronted Iced Earth before hooking up with guitar god Yngwie Malmsteen.
And now comes a solo album so packed with major players it's as if he was playing Fantasy Metal League. Cue Bob Kulick (Meat Loaf), Vinny Appice (Heaven And Hell), Simon Wright (AC/DC/Dio), Billy Sheehan (Mr Big), Steve Stevens (Billy Idol), Dave Ellefson (Mcgadeth) and many more.
But Ripper is the star of the show, doing a mean Rob Halford on It Is Me and evoking another hero, Sir Ronnie of Dio, on Starting Over. True metal believers, rejoice!
