Judas Priest Guitarist Ponders Retirement

(Rock News Desk) Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton has entertained the idea of following ex-bandmate KK Downing into retirement.

Fans were shocked when Downing announced he wouldn't be part of the veteran band's final world tour earlier this year. And although Priest are working on a new album with latest addition Richie Faulkner, Tipton is aware he can't go on for ever.

He tells Straight.com: "I'm still going strong. But, you know, I don't know how much life I've got left in me in terms of putting leather and studs on and going out there and thrashing out heavy metal.

"I want to retire before people start saying that I should have retired I think that's the best way to put it." more on this story
