Glenn Tipton has Parkinsons

Posted: February 13, 2018 in Classic Rock, General

Very sad to hear that Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton has Parkinsons. He will not be able to tour with Judas Priest for the upcoming “Firepower” trek and he has picked Andy Sneap to take his place. Glenn still consider himself a part of Judas Priest, it is just that he can not tour anymore. In my opinion, Glenn has been the motor behind this band for decades. I interviewed him in 1986 on the “Turbo” tour and it was a very pleasant chat (a very good memory for me for sure). Read the interview on this blog here.

Listen to the outstanding title track of the “Firepower” album here.
