Judas Priest

An Evening With Judas Priest’s Tim “Ripper” Owens…

This edition of The Five Count featured an exclusive interview with singer Tim “Ripper” Owens. Tim is best known as the former singer for the bands Judas Priest and Iced Earth. He’s currently a member of the band The Three Tremors. During the show he discussed how The Three Tremors came to be, his thoughts on Judas Priest not being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the new album The Three Tremors: The Solo Versions. See The Three Tremors on April 11 at Whiskey Junction in Minneapolis!

During the rest of the show we explained the possibility of a Five Count curse, discussed why people don’t appreciate the TV show Night Court more, and helped the listeners get through the recent hysteria over COVID-19. Coronavirus couldn’t stop us from entertaining the masses!

A Chat With Judas Priest’s K.K. Downing…

The Five Count recently had another opportunity to speak with legendary guitarist K.K. Downing. K.K. is best known as the former lead guitarist for the band Judas Priest. Trading riffs with guitarist Glen Tipton, K.K. played on every Judas Priest album from 1974’s Rocka Rolla to 2009’s A Touch Of Evil: Live. His new book “Heavy Duty: Days and Nights in Judas Priest” is available now!

Heaven Bent For Leather…

This was another beloved Easter edition of The Five Count. During the show we shared our favorite bible stories, discussed the origins of anchovies on pizza, received a call from “Granny” from the Looney Tunes cartoons, and gave away tickets to see Judas Priest at The Armory in Minneapolis on April 2. Happy Easter, gentle listeners!
