 It is an article/review of Turbo tour with dokken, I found it interesting because it mentioned jonathan valen, the other drummer that was reportedly used by priest on the tour but denied asto how much his input was do to Hollands limitations, anyone who has seen the live DVD has watched the part when he pretty much handcuffs himself trying to play fast (IMO as acolyte)

Seriously...this guy WANTS to be called "Jay Jay" and his last name is French. Jay Jay French talks smack about Saxon and Priest! BWHAHAAAHAAAA!!! Oh lawrd. That is too funny. HAD to find the write-up:
www.blabbermouth.net/news/biff-byford-calls-jay-jay-french-a-silly-little-man-over-retirement-comments/

Byford lays some serious smackdown here. Love some of the comments. Yes, Dee DID write all the songs for Twisted Sister! They had a farewell tour? Damn! I missed it! LOL!!!! Ass-clown!

Long live Priest! Long live Saxon!

'Sup JD!

Yeah, I read that article on Jay Jay a couple of weeks ago. I agree with you and Guido. That guy is a nobody. Pure and simple. He can only WISH that he is on the same level as JP, Saxon and the Rolling Stones. He's just a-hatin'. Fucking asshole.

I didn't see Biff's response to it, though. LOVE IT!!!

Guido I know right? What a joke! You can just see the envy and jealousy eating at him when Priest was mentioned.... Firepower #5 on top 200 billboard charts? Fuck...Shitallica Hard Wired crappy album reached #2 and Priest #5? Highest charting album ever even more than British Steel and Screaming for Vengeance... maybe not album sales but to reach #5 is insane for Judas Priest in 2018 when most people don't buy CDs. It just shows how GREAT Firepower actually is.
[guidogodoy] Wednesday, May 02, 2018 8:38:48 AM 
Damn straight! Jay Jay? Seriously?! Who the FUCK is Jay Jay?!? Whoever the no-name is, he is asking for a beatdown.

Sorry, I am with Biff. Dude talks smack about the Rolling Stones, Saxon and Priest? HA! I actually like the company he put them in there. Twisted Sister had what, two songs in a lifetime? I hardly think that gives him any right to speak about ... ANYTHING!

Hey guido,vail... a few weeks ago guitarist Jay Jay French of Twisted Sister was in Orlando and a guy from an organization called "Spooky Empire" interviewed him,so he sits there and bad mouths the Rolling Stones claiming thier too old to even play thier instruments etc...laughing at them AND said Saxon are like 80 years old hinting THEY are too old to play thier instruments AND called Judas Priest a "cover band" because "Glenn is not there" and says how he can always tell when an old band trys to put out new music live cause everyone goes to the bathroom during the new songs...

What a fucking Joke,not only that but when this guy who was interviewing him said "Yeah but Judas Priest has just released a great record that fans are excited about and reached 5th on the billboard 200 chart... and Saxon has released an album too and is opening for Judas Priest... then the few people in the audience gave a cheer for Judas Priest and Saxon really quick THAT'S when Jay Jay French called Saxon 80 year old men and how Priest is just a cover band...blah blah blah FUCK YOU JAY JAY!

Anyways on Blabbermouth.net Biff Byford commented on "Jay Jay" talking shit and gave an interview and this was at the end:

"If a guitarist wants to say, 'I've had enough,' then he's had enough. And he goes home and… I don't know… I don't know what the guy, Jay Jay or whatever they call him… He'll go and sit on the porch in his rocking chair with his pipe and slippers and fade away. We're fucking Vikings. We don't do that shit."
---Biff Byford.

Lofl Biff is THE MAN! You tell that jealous pile of garbage Biff!

[Head banger] Tuesday, April 24, 2018 8:15:36 AM 
Interesting.

Strange line up, playing much bigger buildings, hitting a lot of the same areas

Priest is a much bigger draw than DP I would think, so maybe the success of this tour is driving them

The promo stuff has no mention of Andy. they list Glen as one of the 5 members

not coming near me, so I dont think I am seeing this leg of the tour.

Guido excellent photos from Kent,Wa bro man!! Thanks again to Budred for
trying to post them,I know there is a pic of just Glenn too... look at Rob just
give Glenn a hug and a kiss... these guys ARE brothers from the soul. Rob said
during the recording sessions of Redeemer Of Souls Glenn made him do many
extra takes ... Rob said laughing "Glenn can get away with that cause he's family".

Yeah I'd bet my LIFE that any show Glenn does not attend he is feeling too shitty
to even stand for a half hour...AINT NO WAY he misses 1 show just to get extra
sleep etc... this guy IS a non stop fighter!

Guardians & Rising From Ruins can mean one thing,but when I listen to it automatically
what I think of is how Rob,Glenn,Ian & Scott had to Rise From Ruins from the situation
when K.K. retired: We're standing as one... we're carrying on....."Rising From Ruins"....

And No Surrender I think automatically of Glenn's situation with Parkinson's.... all the lyrics
just SCREAM Glenn is a non stop fighter!!! And it helps me when I complain about something
stupid,I listen to this song and think of Glenn and how he's fighting this... such an inspirational song to me personally as No Surrender is my FAVORITE track on the album.

I don't think I've ever been more excited for Judas Priest than so am right now. Fuck those who say Ritchie doesn't belong in Judas Priest. Fuck those ignorant individuals.
Its ok for Dio to replace Ozzy.... it's ok for Brian Johnson to replace Bon Scott...yet Ritchie is invalid
cause he replaced K.K.?

Bullshit. That's like saying pretty much like The Rolling Stonesare NOT valid and is a COVER BAND because Ron Wood replaced Mick Taylor who replaced Brian Jones on guitar.

Rob Wood has been the Stones guitarist since 1976. So because he's not the original guitarist it's NOT
The Rolling Stones? It's all HORSE SHIT. Ritchie Faulkner IS an important elite guitarist as much as KK.

Budred THANKS for the thought just the same! Man I STILL HAVE GOOSEBUMPS from seeing Glenn walk out from behind that curtain !! But always KNOW it's "Killing him inside missing any show". His heart and soul goes out to all that didn't get to see him...and KNOW he was not feeling well enough to play that night at your shows.

Man Firepower out did British Steel what a record breaking year!! Lightning Strike is a modern day "You've Got Another Thing Coming".

My god man I can't imagine "The Metal God" walking off the bus and taking a picture...your right,what a gentleman totally!! That would be so awesome and so glad to hear that man. Yeah I know you've met him a few times but I'm sure it don't get boring!! Lol.

It's insane how good Rob sounds and sure without Glenn on Studio it wouldn't really be authentic Classic Priest, but since he IS still on the albums makes Ritchie an elite Judas Priest member,especially after 2 studio albums written along with Rob and Glenn...and 3 years left to go,he'll be a member of Judas Priest for "10" years a freakin decade!

Just love Ritchie man,sure Ken is OUR fav Always will be but it doesn't take away the fact of how important Ritchie is to Judas Priest. Anybody who says He's not is delusional. Totally different style than K.K.'s solos and riffs yet so right for this band. I couldn't imagine Priest ever getting rid of him FOR K.K. back.

When K.K. said he was shocked and stunned HE wasn't asked back to "HIS ORIGINAL ROLE" in the band... that really means booting out Ritchie and putting K.K. in.

Would be nice though to have K.K.,Ritchie and GLENN on an album and see K.K. And Ritchie play live with Glenn on the encores when possible. But for now this band is firing on all cylinders!

[guidogodoy] Tuesday, April 17, 2018 1:41:39 AM 
Damn straight, buddy.

Someone not knowing GLENN, though? Damn!!! They were not worthy of being at that show! lol It shoulda been ME!!!

Still, lucky indeed. Glad to read all of your stories. People meeting band members and such. Funny with Rob as I had brought a copy of Firepower with me and carried the damn thing in a bag with all my tech through the entire show. When he just popped out of the darkness in hat and glasses dressed in black in the dark by the busses, though? I didn't even think to bother the man for more than a picture. As you said, I had met him once before with Guitardude at the Meet and Greet in Texas and again in Detroit. I have his autograph a bunch of times. That pic is priceless!

guido... hell yeah man...I read your post too about you getting your pics with Rob off the tour bus...totally awsome!! What a RUSH even though you've met him before and all... still it's THE METAL GOD! When Glenn walked out the place ERUPTED man...I too started celebrating high fivin some fans around me and I looked behind me was a 21 yr old kid that looked puzzled like "what's the big deal and who is the old guy with the guitar"?? Lofl. 99% of the place went nuts though...

Saxon was awesome too man,Biff and Co. Kick ass don't they? Thunderbolt is a very kick butt album,the nod to Lemmy and Motorhead "They Played Rock and Roll" off the new album is an instant Saxon Classic.... such an underrated heavy metal band.

We are very lucky to have Glenn on the Firepower album man that is HUGE and really how good Firepower really is... I have said Redeemer is the 4th best Priest favorite and Firepower top It.

Sad Wings of Destiny, British Steel,Screaming for Vengeance,Defenders of the Faith,Painkiller.... If Firepower isn't equal to these records it's so DAMN CLOSE it's uncanny,so close.... so good of classic Judas Priest GEMS all 14 tracks that it' seriously doesn't get any better especially how each album is different... dude we are lucky to have THIS quality this late in the game. Pretty impressive more than ANY BAND EVER.

Absolutely insane! Your concert sounded great too, man. Very happy for you! A Glenn concert to boot? NICE! I would have written a response when I read your posts the first time but I didn't want to stomp all over the vid but you KNOW I read every word!

My show? Great but the best was that me and my buddy step out back to the tour busses...only to find Rob! Took a quick picture with each of us and off he went. Was snowing and all. What a gentleman! SOOO glad the picture turned out as well. Would likely have whipped my phone into a wall if it didn't capture it!! Once in a lifetime, buddy! \m/

Not sure why he can' reach the very FIRST scream in the song,I mean it' still killer and all man but it must be pretty difficult and usually at the end he almost reaches this octave but very rarely...

And yes this video is how the END of Painkiller sounded...almost album perfect! Just great!!

@vail... also I was referring to the both screams at the end of Painkiller,the first signature SCREAM at the beginning of the song he didnt hit like the album and can't hit often,he did in 2014 at the Tacoma Dome,last night his first scream wasn't as high( BUT STILL KILLER) as the last 2 screams at the end and idk why he can hit the 2 screams at the end in that octave as shown in the Prudential theatre clip but he can't seem to reach it that FIRST scream....

Well im sure it's a bitch to do in the first place lol. The Last 2 screams were spot on album like.... even that is rare...and it was kick buttocks!!

Yeah seeing Glenn walk out from behind the curtains was magical,and he kicked ass ... signaling the crowd fist to chest a couple times and back out at the crowd. Yeah it was awsome.

I'm not sure how to post videos from my phone but if you go to YOUTUBE and type in "Rob Halford leaving it all on stage" its live at the Prudential theatre 3/20/18

(guido if you can post this clip I would highly appreciate it when ya have time)

it'll show the end of Painkiller where he sings "Pain...Pain...Killa...killa...Pain...Pain...Killa...Killerrrrr"...listen to how HIGH his range is on that very note... And watch how out of breath Rob is right after he belts it out gasping for breaths of air ..... fucking A man his heart and soul are into this...

I know he can't hit the octave like this at every show but this little clip PROVES he "sometimes does hit the very same high octave range SCREAM in Painkiller".

He didn't hit that note early the first time in the song THAT HIGH in octave range in this clip at the Prudential theatre but at the Showare Center last night he hit it like THE STUDIO ALBUM damn near close enough...both screams in Painkiller and it was even better than the clip at the Prudential theatre too.

It was amazing! I saw the clip from the Kent show last night on YouTube Metal Gods ....at the end Rob hugs Glenn and gives him a kiss on the cheek as he did a few weeks ago...I missed it really quick cause I was high fivin' people around me!!

The energy from this sold out show was amazing,you couldn't fit one more person in the place and even Ian looked stoked...ha ha he didn't move much from his spot at my show either lol however his bass neck was swinging all over the place as he was INTO IT...Scott too.... just a superb show all the way around!  Edited at: Monday, April 16, 2018 4:18:14 PM

Holy Shit we just got out of the Showare Center in Kent,Wa here....SOLD OUT SHOW GUYS!!!! And to top it off....GLENN WAS HERE!!! FUCK YEAH!!

When Glenn walked out on Stage during encore the place UTTERLY ERUPTED and went totally BALLISTIC and fucking LOUD MAN what a RUSH to see him,I know in his heart he wants to do every show I'm sure,but how lucky we were to see him jam on stage and play Metal Gods and solo flawlessly, Breaking the Law and Living After Midnight and solo flawlessly....never WAS so happy to hear those tracks again that I used to tire of... WOW!

And again here in Washington State he nailed PAINKILLER and the SCREAM was so damn near PERFECT or it actually was perfect lol. I never thought he'd hit those notes but god damn it was fuckin killer! Andy was great had great stage presence and guitar parts and solos were excellent!

Saxon blew the roof off prior,Biff and the boys were in top form and there isn't a band in the WORLD better to open for Judas Priest! Saxon blew a lot of minds here and gained some fans with this performance.... a big thank you to Saxon!!!

Rob's vocals at 66 years old is fucking incredible... I know Budred's  show and Head Bangers show he may of been sick,etc... And he won't be perfect every night but god damn guys like in 2014 Redeemer Of Souls tour in the Tacoma Dome he hit that signature Painkiller SCREAM...i thought he wouldnt be able to either but he fuckin did man...hopefully there is a youtube clip of it even with crappy quality you'll hear he hits it. Maybe its the wet moist air up here idk?

I talked to a few meatheads after the show and even they said they can't believe how excellent he sang Painkiller yet other youtube concerts he doesnt nail it like he can  up here..idk I know it sounds like bullshit but by god damn on my mother's grave he hit the Painkiller notes the entire song!!!  I've got nothing bad to say here.

It was absolutely excellent man fucking A!!! And hails to Glenn Tipton for making it out here on a rainy Sunday night in the state where it rains the most ....

And what an emotional feeling for me having posters of this guy plastered all over my bedroom walls as a kid growing up in the early 80's and with his condition walking out on Stage and rocking out with the guys like he just refuses to give in to that ugly disease he's battling....

Glenn thank you we love you man!!!!

 KEWL, man!!! My show was tops as well. I chuckled at the "Ian didn't move" comment as he sure as HELL didn't at my show either! On the other hand, I parked right in front of Richie and literally took hundreds of shots of him! Rob came over and....to top it all? My buddy and I caught him at the bus! Nobody but Rob came out as it was snowing. Great moment. Quick picture and...HE'S GOOOONE!!! lol

I'd go again in a HEARTBEAT!!!!

 Concert review finally.  Did not have time while in Denver.  To busy hiking.

Did not think I would like BSR, but they were good.  Crowd was half there (Thin Lizzy in Calgary for Epitath played to maybe 500 by the end of their set)  more energy

Saxon was good also.  Sound quality where I was could have been better, but they were good, first time seeing them

Priest was great.  They figured out the sound quality issues.  Richie seemed to spend a lot of time very far left on the stage.  made photos hard.  I think Ian wants to play behind the curtain.  He hardly moved from his spot.  came out and headbanged with andy a couple of times.  Andy, Richie and Rob got headbanging together a few times.  Scott was very into it all.

Rob sounded good, cant do the notes in painkiller, which is not new, and one song (I forget which one) he seemed off key the whole song, but it was a good show.  New stuff sounded spot on to me

Rob didnt introduce anyone in the band, which I thought was odd.  

If this tour gets this way I will go see them again.  Glad I went, Denver is a nice area, got some good hiking in also.

hope you can see photos here.

Acolyte.... what a joke huh? The only GOOD thing is i think when we got screwed with our accounts so did those 2 stupid fucktarded assholes flick my boogers and his fat idiot who worshiped him. Fuck off to those 2 fucking dumb fucks....this place has been NICE without them. I'll bet they are floored they can't log onto the forum .... only can read what us TRUE Judas Priest fans are saying.They were anything BUT fans of our favorite band. Fuck those 2 fucking idiots.No more.

Firepower is so great of an album it's so close to Screaming For Vengeance....maybe not AS GOOD but does it really have to be? No. Not to mention it's almost utterly impossible to match that album even WITH K.K. Just love every track.... Glenn's slide guitar solo in Flame Thrower is absolutely kick ass bad ass and fucking brilliant! It's so Tipton it's great....all his solos...

First main solo in the middle of Evil Never Dies
The entire solo on Never The Heroes
The 2nd trade off solo on Necromancer
The 2nd solo on Children Of The Sun
The 2nd solo in Rising From Ruins
The 2nd slide guitar solo in Flame Thrower
The entire solo in No Surrender
The first main solo in Sea Of Red

All the GREAT GLENN TIPTON.

Plus dual harmonies solos with Ritchie in
Firepower
Lightning Strike
Guardians
Traitors Gate......

A big fuck off to those out there who think he's not on this album!

 I knew it would be different as well. I think he could remain true to their sound though.  He chooses not to. When you're seeing Judas Priest on stage but it's not really sounding like them it's a little weird. I enjoyed it. I drove 5hrs to see it a second time. I might not have the same enthusiasm if they do another tour though.
[J.D. DIAMOND] Wednesday, April 04, 2018 10:37:46 PM 
 @Acolyte... it doesn't appear to be sold out no. 

[J.D. DIAMOND] Wednesday, April 04, 2018 10:03:40 PM 
@acolyte...im not sure if it is or not ... I don't think it is...I'll look and see if I can find out. My girlfriend and I are going we'll be there on the 15th at the Showare Center. We are not seeing BSR... But will be there for Saxon and Judas Priest.

[J.D. DIAMOND] Wednesday, April 04, 2018 3:57:49 PM 
Regarding the metal blah thread (my account has a malfunction that restricts me to the newbie theads...thanks a lot "Murray").

I'm not going to the concert to expect to hear Glenn and K.K.'s signature style and sound. Not at all. I already know it's not going to SOUND like the original sound of Priest...when Glenn said he can't tour anymore that pretty much means the band is retired from touring etc... the tour we are seeing now is in HONOR and is in the SPIRIT and cellebration of Judas Priest.

Album wise...yes Firepower is is so close to elite albums like Screaming for Vengeance and Defenders Of The Faith that it's practically pressed up against one another in excellence. It's as CLOSE in quality as it can be without Mr. Downing in our band.

But again,these shows should be a cellebration of the spirit of Judas Priest and I can't wait for the 15th!!!

@Head Banger ... ya know I think I may of jumped a little too far in saying that Firepower is equal to any classic Priest album only because somehow I forget that one element is missing from the album that might of pushed it into equality and changed it a little too for the better ...... "K.K.Downing".

(Caught up in the moment perhaps?)

Maybe so BUT the album IS right behind Classics though,so damn close to albums like British Steel,Screaming for Vengeance,Defenders of the Faith and Painkiller... A.O.R. ..... it's so close to these group of albums it's uncanny. Ritchie's solos are incredibly excellent for JP. Yeah this album is defiantly standing tall along side those albums very very closely especially without K.K. Downing which is pretty impressive.

And watch the end of the clip Rob walks over to Glenn and kisses him on the cheek,then Glenn thinks about walking up front but stops because I think he realized he needed Rob's help...then Rob grabs his arm and helps him up front... it's just awesome.

I know some are "sad" to see Glenn like this but look past this terrible disease and see the warrior in Glenn ....

Taking medication,probably feeling like shit "diarrhea,head ache,muscle ache,nausea stomach Fatigue LACK of energy....

And through it all Glenn finds the right moments between it all or even during some of it to come out and blast some Priest heavy metal as he said,it's just unbelievable and shows how much he cares about US. WE LOVE YOU GLENN !!!!!!!!!!!!

Well I looked up Stun definition and it said knocked into a semi-conscious state,shock momentarily and somethin else idk I guess you could get stunned by the flame burnin you then take off again on the run from Rob's Flame Thrower I don't know I never thought about it lol

 I said I like every song on this album but in 38yrs of following Priest I've never said that before. Got booted from a JP group for trolling fanboys. Messed up though because I liked the group otherwise. Regardless the fanboy role is not me and never will be. I know you weren't referring to me  but I just want people to know that how I feel about this record is special and not just fanboydom.

Budred.... I agree 100%. To me in my honest opinion Firepower is EQUAL to any top notch album.Never in a million years I thought I'd be saying THAT but the songs and album speak for itself. 99% of Judas Priest's fan base will hail this as top 5,6 or 7th best album of all time....

Guardians/ Rising From Ruins is as good as Victim Of Changes,Sinner,HBFL,Hellion/Electric Eye....etc.

Very good album. Head Banger especially likes Flame Thrower. ME TOO!!
[Budred] Wednesday, March 21, 2018 7:07:44 PM 
 I think it could be their best album ever. It may not have a Painkiller or Freewheel Burning or All Guns Blazing but it does have some fantastic tracks on it. Those tracks are some of my favorite Priest songs but they are not on my favorite Priest album. My favorite is Stained Class. (I'm getting to a point). A few stellar songs but the reason it's my favorite is because of it's overall consistency. Other than one track it's great from beginning to end. All other Priest albums seem to have about 3 or 4 tracks I could pass on. I'm loving Firepower because it has some great tracks and it is definitely consistent. I think every song on it is at worst a good one. Some parts of some songs is some of the heaviest Priest I've ever heard. Rob's vocals amaze me right now. My complaint about Redeemer was production. No issues here with that. This album screams. Add to all that I'm hearing various stages of Priest including Demolition throughout the disc but it all has a modern feel to it. Because of the modernization, the great tracks, and overall consistency I feel comfortable saying this could be their overall best effort to date. You guys know I will state displeasure. I have nothing negative what so ever to say about Firepower. Thank you to Judas Priest. This is what I've been waiting for since Rob came back. A little late but I'll take it.
...my opinion, it only matters to me. To each his own.
