At just 12 years-old, Jack Ripper has shredded his way to acclaim (literally), formerly playing with local metal band Kraized and opening solo for national acts. Ripper is heavily influenced by old school metal, and he plays the solo for "Crazy Train" better than anybody except, perhaps, the late Randy Rhoads. (Famous six-strong kindred spirit: Tommy Iommi of Black Sabbath).
