Judas Priest's Newest Member Fit Right In On New Album

(Classic Rock) Veteran Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton says the way new guitarist Ritchie Faulkner fitted into songwriting sessions is nothing short of a "miracle."

Former Lauren Harris axeman Faulkner joined the band in 2011 after KK Downing decided to bow out. He took part in their Epitaph world tour - but Tipton says that didn't offer any hints as to how he'd contribute when it came to creating material for upcoming album Redeemer Of Souls.

"It was just incredible the way Ritchie fitted in. It was almost like he'd always been there," Tipton tells WDHA. "We didn't know that - we knew he worked live but we had no ideas how we'd gel together when we wrote. It was immediate: he brought energy to the band, and great songs and riffs to the table. It was like a miracle."
