Halford is 'Up For' singing Owens-era Priest songs

Rob Halford says that he is "up for" performing songs written and recorded during the years when JUDAS PRIEST was fronted by his replacement, Tim "Ripper" Owens.

Owens recorded two studio albums with the legends — 1997's "Jugulator" and 2001's "Demolition" — before the band reunited with Halford.

Asked in the January 2020 issue of U.K.'s Metal Hammer magazine if PRIEST will ever play songs from the Owens era, Halford replied: "Why not? Those records, 'Jugulator' and 'Demolition', are both part of the great history of JUDAS PRIEST. And Tim is a good friend of mine. I've never done any of the songs that he sang on, but I'd definitely have a crack at them. I'm up for that. When? It could happen at any time; it wouldn't need to be an anniversary. Before we go onstage, we have a jam, and that's time when ideas from leftfield are thrown around. That's probably how we'll do it. It'll just happen and it'll be brilliant."
