JUDAS PRIEST's RICHIE FAULKNER Plays IRON MAIDEN's 'To Tame A Land' While In Quarantine

JUDAS PRIEST   guitarist   Richie Faulkner   recently teamed up with session/touring drummer   Joe Lazarus   to record a quarantine version of the   IRON MAIDEN   classic   "To Tame A Land" . You can now check it out below.

Faulkner   tweeted out the clip earlier today and included the following message: "Myself and my bro @joelazdrums took it back to the   piece of mind   album for some quarantine fun and laid down   To take a land   [sic]. Wicked song, wicked drumming by joe and lots of fun to do. Check out the full vid on the   you tubes . Shall we do another one?"

Back in 2015,   Faulkner , who was once the guitarist in the backing group for   Lauren Harris , daughter of   IRON MAIDEN   bassist   Steve Harris , was asked in an interview with   GigsAndFestivals.com   if he was "on the subs bench for   IRON MAIDEN " prior to joining   JUDAS PRIEST   as the replacement for   K.K. Downing . He responded: "Yeah, you never know! I worked with   Steve   and   Lauren , and [ Steve ] was one of the first ones that I told when I got the   PRIEST   gig. I said I've been approached by another band, and he was over the moon when I told him it was   PRIEST . He's one of these guys who's really supportive, and he said: 'I would have had you in my band. If anything would have happened to any of my guys, you were the guy that was going to do it.'"

Faulkner   continued: "[ Steve   is] a great guy, and like the guys in   PRIEST , he's an idol and he's a teacher. He wished me all the best and sent me on my way. We saw him at   Download   [festival] a couple of months ago. He loves the music; he loves the vibe, and he's a genuine fan of all things heavy. So, it was great to get his endorsement right from the beginning."

Earlier this year,   Faulkner   said that he had "a ton of ideas" for   JUDAS PRIEST 's follow-up to   "Firepower"   album. Released in March 2018,   "Firepower"   was the second   PRIEST   LP to feature the 40-year-old guitarist.

JUDAS PRIEST   is scheduled to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year with a world tour coming to the U.S. in the fall. Via Blabbermouth
