JUDAS PRIEST IGNORES VOCALIST TIM RIPPER OWENS FOR UPCOMING ROCK HALL INDUCTION

Ex-Judas Priest vocalist Tim Ripper Owens says that he never got a call from his former bandmates about them finally getting inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

He told Rolling Stone: “It’s a shame that the hall can’t bring in members that were in the band almost 10 years and had a Grammy nomination, two studio records, two live records, and a DVD.

He went on to say “What gets me more than anything is that I haven’t even gotten a call from Judas Priest on it. There’s never been a call saying, ‘You were a big part of this. Here’s the reasons you’re not being inducted, but you were a big part of us and you’re a big part of the family.’ There wasn’t even a phone call.”

Owens joined the band in 1996 to replace Rob Halford, who has since rejoined.

According to the Hall of Fame, the members that will get inducted include current members Halford, Ian Hill (bass),Glenn Tipton (guitar) and Scott Travis (drums),along with former members K.K. Downing (guitar),Les Binks (drums) and late drummer Dave Holland.

The ceremony will be held on November 5, in Los Angeles and will air on HBO.
