RICHIE FAULKNER Performs With JUDAS PRIEST Tribute Band In Nashville (Video)

Richie Faulkner joined the Tennessee JUDAS PRIEST tribute band SAD WINGS on stage on August 18 at the Hard Rock Cafe in Nashville to perform three PRIEST classics: "Metal Gods", "Breaking The Law" and "Hell Bent For Leather". Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.

Earlier today, SAD WINGS wrote on Facebook: "So....we were playing a show at Hard Rock Cafe Nashville when Richie Faulkner, guitarist from JUDAS PRIEST walked in. Richie just moved to Nashville and wanted to check out the local PRIEST tribute band. He watched us play 7 songs then asked to join in! He played Metal Gods, Breakin' the Law and Hellbent for Leather. Richie complimented us on specific things in songs and especially front Man Tim McDonald's vocals on Down in Flames and Victim of Changes. We are honored, humbled and grateful that Richie gave us the most epic band memory of our life. Richie was gracious, funny and humble. What a great guy! Thank you to everyone who was a part of this incredible evening."

Faulkner joined PRIEST in 2011 as the replacement for original guitarist K.K. Downing.

Richie was once the guitarist in the backing group for Lauren Harris, daughter of IRON MAIDEN bassist Steve Harris.

In a 2016 interview with 103GBF, JUDAS PRIEST singer Rob Halford stated about Faulkner: "We can't say enough about Richie. I mean, you know, it's hard to condense it, but if you [see PRIEST in concert] and just look at Richie's charisma and energy and all of the great stuff that's coming out of his hands, it's wonderful; it really is. And, yeah, I mean, he's infectious; the fans will tell you that. Once the show kicks off, he's at the edge of the stage connecting, and that's a really cool thing to be having happen with PRIEST."

PRIEST recently completed a North American tour with support from URIAH HEEP.
