#74: Judas Priest Guitarist Richie Faulkner

#74: Judas Priest Guitarist Richie Faulkner

Richie Faulkner, guitarist for the almighty Judas Priest, is our guest this week. We talk to him about his relatively new gig with JP (seeing as their history dates back to before he was even born), which band member’s daughter he might be dating, what it’s like filling the shoes of the great K.K. Downing and breaking the news to Glenn Tipton that he’s playing a song incorrectly.

Chuck and Godless offer some words about our friend Corey Mitchell’s passing last week, they discuss Miss Fortune’s dismall from the Sumerian roster due to the lead singer’s run-in with the law, and they take a listener-suggested topic on whether a band’s live performance is any better than watching a recorded performance of theirs online (after all, over five million people streamed Knotfest last week).
