‘Ripper’ Owens to Sing For Yngwie. Place Your Bets Now.

Ok, so Blabbermouth.net and a ton of other sites are saying that Yngwie Malmsteen (y’know, THE Yngwie “J” Malmsteen) has announced his new lineup, which will feature none other than Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens on vocals!  Him of ex-Judas Priest and ex-Iced Earth fame.

Now, anyone familiar with Mr. Malmsteen knows that he’s had roughly 2000 lead singers over the course of his career – and it usually doesn’t end well.  Let’s just say Yngwie has a reputation as being a tad bit of a perfectionist.   A screaming, raving perfectionist.  There, I said it as nicely as I could.  

Well, Mr. Owens is not lacking in self confidence himself and despite having been asked to leave the last two bands he was in, I don’t think he’s yet reduced to bootlicking or ‘yes sirring’ anyone.  And he’s not exactly SMALL either.

So, I say call your bookie, put your money down and sit back to watch the show.  It’s gonna be interesting either way. 

If it goes badly, my money’s on the tattooed guy from Ohio, of course!
