Judas Priest frontman, Rob Halford says there are no plans for them to retire after guitarist Glenn Tipton said he was coming off of the road due to his many years battle with Parkinson’s disease. “We know what Glenn has been up against, and he has showed absolute proof that there is no such thing as retirement in the Priest plan” Halford told Maximum Ink.
Despite losing Tipton from the road, things will still progress forward. Halford stated that they feel like there is always another song to sing or another show to play. The band has a new album, ‘Firepower’ that was released on March 9, and the tour promoting it. They still get offers from all over the world to play international venues. Why ruin a good thing? As long as they have the desire and the want to keep Priest fans happy, I say rock on!! JP is STILL badass and relevant!!
