Au Mann.  :-\ :-\ :-\

I had noticed on the last few gigs I saw how he is getting frailer and frailer and leaving more and more of the lead guitar work to new kid Richie Faulkner - I thought ok, he might not have his former dexterity anymore (Tipton is vastly underrated for his solos) and he's played those lead breaks often enough in the last four decades and lets "the kid" have a try at them -, but this is crushing.

Halford is the voice of Priest, but Tipton was the heart and brain. Without him (he joined shortly before their debut album), they would have never left that rehearsal space in Birmingham.
