|Cool. Enjoy, man! I'm sure you saw KK's write up:|
I just thought I would share this photo with you!
Last night I went up to Manchester to see the Dio Disciples. I had been promising myself that I would not miss this show at any cost.
It is not only totally packed with great songs but also I know all of the guys in the band and how good they are, including of course the great Ripper Owens, so I was guaranteed a night to remember. I was not disappointed; the guys excelled themselves as the crowd chanted "Dio! Dio! Dio!" over and over again.
If you get a chance do not miss out, it is a must see performance and a fitting tribute to the great Ronnie James Dio, the man who loved everyone and the man that everyone loved, his voice must and will live on forever!

|My wife surprised me last night with tickets to see Dio Desciples.|
Sept. 27, Altar Bar Pittsburgh Pa.
Tim "Ripper" Owens
I can't wait. No, Ripper can't replace Dio, but he has a vocal style that should make this a good show.

|Yeah Bud', saw JP with Ripper 4 times myself too. The first time in London in 1998 was like a freakin' religeous experience - "THE PRIEST IS BAAAAACK!!!" indeed.|
The other three times in 2001 (including the "Live In London" recording) were all excellent shows as well.
I have only the utmost respect & gratitude to Tim Owens for stepping up (to fill near impossible shoes) & helping to keep the Priest flag flying (same goes to Richie Faulkner too).

|Dude, I love you!!!|
OK..., maybe not,
... but finally.
I think there are two of us (maybe three on a good day) that agree.
I saw them 4 times on Demolition and I think they kicked ass everytime.
The only thing I didn't like about Jugulator was the overall sound quality.
To me it seemed like poor production.The concert was the same and I
really didn't care for them, actually thought they were done but then Demolition.
I Loved it.

|It's a shame to hear people write off the "Ripper" period albums, just because, or so it would appear, Rob wasn't involved with the band at this time.|
Personally speaking, I'm not a great fan of "Jugulator", although the three songs that I really do like are "Blood Stained", "Burn In Hell" & "Abductors" - the first of which certainly seemed to have become a live favourite when I saw them playing with Mr. Owens.
"Demolition", for me, is a much more interesting release, but suffers from perhaps having too many songs, but the ones that catch my interest most are "One On One" (another that worked well live, at the time), "Hell Is Home", "Devil Digger", "Bloodsuckers", "In Between", "Feed On Me", "Subterfuge" & "Lost & Found". However, "Jekyll & Hyde" is ludicrous (IMO)!!!
Whether you like it or not, these albums are still Judas Priest records, and deserve the support, consideration & time of anyone who might regard themselves to be a proper fan of the band (rather than just of Mr. Halford).
Anyway, back on subject - for me it's probably a tie for worst album as both "Jugulator" & "Turbo" only have three songs that I would actually choose to listen to (the "Turbo" ones being "Turbo Lover", "Out In The Cold" & "Reckless").

| I've never listened to the Ripper albums so wouldn't know how bad/good they are. Out of all the Halford albums I'd have to say Nostrodamus is the least good but, like Angel of Retribution it may grow on me with time.|

|Demolition, and Jugulator (I'll admit that I only like one song from it, Cathedral Spires)|
|[Metal Goddess] Tuesday, May 03, 2011 8:10:36 PM|| |
|Demolition and Jugulator. Other than that they have none.|

|both ripper albums then Nostradamus. MpleSyrp|

|I disliked tubo lover back in the day-(i felt it was akin to KISS dynasty ) but now I'm wiser. Nostradomus must be something that Priest just needed to get out there.But It is a very hard pill to swallow.|

Some would say that Nostradamus sucked. I originally found that such only had one good song. However, the more that I listened to such, the more that I began to love it. Such is like Sad Wings of Destiny 32 years later. Sad Wings was very popular for years, due to the psychedillic effect it has. I now love Nostradamus where I originally did not like such.

Firsty, Turbo was off of Turbo, Dissedent Leather. Point of Entry was an incredible album, especially if you like marijuana. Secondly, Rocka Rolla was Judas Priest's very first album, from 1974. I, for one, love it. I was very dissappointed with Ram it Down, and wasn't impressed at all with Turbo. I found that both reflected the dark, hard times of that era of the 80's.
|[Dissident_Leather_Rebel] Wednesday, March 30, 2011 4:35:08 PM|| |
|I'd have to say point of entry as the worst as in not many good songs. weakest would be Turbo as they kinda lost their regular feel. As u culd maybe tell, i don't really consider the Ripper era "Judas Priest". As for my favorite albums, I would have to say either Painkiller or Stained Class.|
|[The Controller of Planet X] Wednesday, March 30, 2011 1:08:16 AM|| |
|For the most part, I liked "Turbo" and "Ram It Down", but yes both due have some corny crap thrown on (Seriously, "Parental Guidance"? Jeesh!). Never listened to either Ripper albums and I still don't care to. I guess my least favorite "real" Priest is Rocka Rolla; way to plain and unmemorable. |

|Rock-a-Rolla did nothing for me!|
|[nick2584] Tuesday, March 22, 2011 3:35:30 PM|| |
|I think Demolition was alittle weak but Machine man Feed On Me Hell Is Home are great songs the rest of the album not so much |
