* Tim "Ripper" Owens is known by some of his fans as The Man of a Thousand Bands due to his relatively large number of projects he's worked on (and been fired from.) So far, he's worked with British Steel, a Judas Priest tribute band, Music/JudasPriest themselves (who fired him to make room for his predecessor, Rob Halford,) IcedEarth (who fired him to make room for his predecessor, Matt Barlow,) Brainicide, Winter's Bane (who he left to join Iced Earth,) BeyondFear, Music/YngwieMalmsteen's Rising Force and his solo project. He lampshaded his tendency to get fired from bands to make room for old vocalists in an interview with ''Series/ThatMetalShow'', first by joking that he started his solo project so he could have a band he couldn't be fired from, then by joking that his solo band tried to fire him.
