Since Judas Priest passed Winnipeg in 2011 on their Epitaph tour, five local musicians teamed up and formed a Priest cover band to make up for it.
I had the honor of making stage decorations (which consisted of painted cardboard chains and homemade Judas Priest flags), singing backup vocals, and making the poster for the event.
Using Priest’s cover artwork for Killing Machine, I removed the sunglasses from the model and replaced them with an image of a disco ball. Copyright infringement galore. Oops!
At the show, the band and I covered songs including Turbo Lover, Starbreaker, Diamonds and Rust, and Metal Gods. It was my first time performing with a heavy metal band, and hopefully it won’t be the last!
