Halford: “Tipton on Firepower was ALL Tipton”

Judas Priest front man Rob Halford joined The Freaks With Kenny and Crash in studio prior to the release of Priest’s new record “Firepower” and responded to comments made by former band mate K.K. Downing in regards to guitarist Glenn Tipton’s work on Firepower.

K.K. Downing's statement, via Blabbermouth read as follows:

"The news that Glenn has finally been forced to come to terms with his unfortunate condition long term came with deep regret and sadness for me. Equally, this ending of our guitar duo era is also something that I have to come to terms with. The insatiable appetite that myself and Glenn had for creating inspired and unique music for the world to enjoy for many decades, is something that can never be erased. However, everyone who has witnessed the evolution of our beloved music must come to terms with the fact that things will inevitably change, or just simply end.

"I know Andy Sneap — and he is one of the greatest contributors to rock and metal that you will ever have the privilege to meet. To that end, I have no doubt that his contribution to the new JUDAS PRIEST album was much more than just as a producer. All that's left is for you the fans to go out and enjoy the band as it is, in order to complete a part of music history in which every one of you has played such an important role."
