Guitar legend GLENN TIPTON Diagnosed With Parkinson’s Disease

Sad news to here…

Legendary Judas Priest has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.

The band has posted…

True to the metal spirit of “the show must go on,” Glenn has requested PRIEST producer and HELL guitarist Andy Sneap to fly the flag on stage for him.

Glenn said: “I want everyone to know that it’s vital that the JUDAS PRIEST tour go ahead and that I am not leaving the band — it’s simply that my role has changed. I don’t rule out the chance to go on stage as and when I feel able to blast out some PRIEST! So at some point in the not-too-distant future, I’m really looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful metal maniacs once again.”

Tipton‘s PRIEST bandmates had this to say: “We have been privileged to witness Glenn‘s determination and steadfast commitment over the years, showing his passion and self belief through the writing, recording and performing sessions with PRIEST. He is a true metal hero!

  1. Glenn, as with KK. Thanks for the journey and your place in history/future. Now it’s time to take care of you. Regretabbly I have never had the privilege of seeing Priest in concert (always something, military service, work, etc…and moving back to Newfoundland – where great acts rarely visit)

    But at least I’ve indulged in your albums, tapes, CDs and videos over the many decades.

    I bid you best wishes and despite the diagnosis, a long happy and healthy life. Prayers for your healing.
