Ram It Down Leather Waistcoat. This history of this waistcoat is not as clear. Rob can’t recall who exactly made this for him, although once again, it will probably have been Ray Brown. The ‘Ram it Down’ album release was followed by the ‘Mercenaries Of Metal 88’ tour. Ray Brown is credited on his site as being the clothing designer for this, and other, Priest Tours. It could have been worn at the Powerhouse, Birmingham 12.06.88, when Priest played there.
These were made by Ray Brown – www.raybrownfashion.com Ray Brown specialises in making bespoke items of clothing, mainly used on stage to perform in. In the 80’s, Ray made clothes for many bands including Motley Crue and Bon Jovi. Rob wore these 2 jackets during the ‘Turbo’ album era. This will have been 1985/86 These 2 were also worn for the ‘Locked In’ and ‘Turbo Lover’ promo videos. The tour for this album was the ‘Fuel For Life’ tour.
