TIM 'RIPPER' OWENS Teams Up With NEIL TURBIN On ANTHRAX Classic

The following update has been posted on singer Neil Turbin's (ex-ANTHRAX) official web site:

"Neil Turbin's DEATHRIDERS were joined onstage Friday, May 27th, 2005 at Monterrey Metal Fest II 2005 official pre-party event held at Cafe Iguana, Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico by noneother than Tim 'Ripper' Owens [ICED EARTH, BEYOND FEAR, ex-JUDAS PRIEST]. Tim and Neil were both trading high notes for a rousing rendition of Neil's anthem 'Metal Thrashing Mad'. Tim 'Ripper' Owens and his band BEYOND FEAR headlined the sold-out concert.

"On a side note the departure flight from LAX to Monterrey was nothing short of a near death experience, the airplane actually lost control for a period of time where there was heavy rattling, wings were stressed to their limit and bolts were missing or loosened. Tommy and I stood up and were watching out the window as the wings bent up above the plane and were flapping up and down like a bird. On the flight were Lemmy Kilmister, Glenn Danzig, Johnny Kelly, Tommy Victor, Jerry Montano, Neil Turbin, Kurt James, Beau Simpson, Mike Giordano, Mikey Niel and a couple of screaming flight attendants, crying infants and a few people wet their seats. When the plane landed everyone applauded and as we were walking towards customs Lemmy said to us, 'I thought we were going to hit the ground a bit sooner than expected.'

"Monterrey shows kicked major ass, the city is clean and beautiful, the people were friendly and excited for all of us to be there, all the bands sounded great and were extremely cool people to hang with (METAL CHURCH, BEYOND FEAR, W.A.S.P., DANZIG, MOTÖRHEAD, AZRAEL'S BANE, IGNITOR, INTO ETERNITY, JAG PANZER, SHADOWKEEP, ANTON) and Lemmy fucking rules!"
