|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.

|Fuckin A man I'm STILL STOKED from last Sunday night man 5 days later |
and I'm mind blown at how kick ass it was!!!! And that Painkiller clip guido posted
was SPOT ON at how good Rob was ... the whole night he was ON! I'M sure it's very
hard to perfect every show at his age but whole shit he sounded EXCELLENT!!
And Ritchie was on fire as usual.... this guy IS an elite member of this band!!

| As Acolyte- anyone hearing any scuttlebutt about the second leg of the tour? I have heard the band they are going out with could be a headliner themselves, band names that have cropped up are UFO and Deep Purple, let me know, Cheers Acolyte |

|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".

Tried 3x. I give up. Supposed to be a pic for JD.
It's one Rob put on Facebook with Glenn from Washington.

|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!

|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/

| Guido! Thanks man... YES! This is the octave screams at the end he hits and man in that video isn' that insane or what? |
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.

|Man, it's so awesome to read that you saw a great show, JD. And to have Glenn show up to play?? Holy crap!!! |
Also liked what you said about Glenn fighting against all odds to make a performance or two during this tour. Shit, he's fightin' this disease to the bone!!! We are not worthy!!!
