Onetime Judas Priest singer Tim “Ripper” Owens is responding to the backlash he’s endured after complaining he hasn’t been invited to his former band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
“I knew my comments about the Rock Hall would be turned into a headline,” Owens says. “Listen, I’m not going in, and that’s cool. Like I said before, I feel like I’m going in anyways, ’cause I was in the band for about 10 years and I did two studio records and two live records and a DVD and a Grammy nomination.”
Although Owens goes on to praise his former bandmates, he still appears to bear at least a little resentment over the Rock Hall diss. “I still love the guys, but it’s shocking that my era has just been swept under the rug,” he says. “Like I’ve said, a phone call would have been nice just to say, ‘Listen, you’re not getting in.'”
