On Friday Iron Maiden Would Have Recruited Judas Priest's Richie Faulkner was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner might have become a member of Iron Maiden if things had worked out differently, he's revealed. He'd been working with Lauren Harris, daughter of Maiden mainman Steve, before joining Rob Halford's band in 2011, after the departure of KK Downing.

Faulkner tells GigsAndFestivals: "Steve was one of the first ones I told when I got the Priest gig.He's a great guy, and, like the guys in Priest, he's an idol and he's a teacher. He's one of these guys who's really supportive.

"I said, 'I've been approached by another band,' and he was over the moon when I told him it was Priest. He said, 'I would have had you in my band. If anything had happened to any of my guys, you were the guy that was going to do it." Read more - here.
