any priest fans? 

rob had an in-store signing in long beach yesterday! would have been cooler if it were glenn, but i can't complain...

i'm really not a big fan of meeting famous people, but come on, it's the voice of metal! and...how much longer is he really going to be around?

Haha !!
I can imagine he wants a photograph with you.
Your gourgeous.

Little then less left of his "sieg heil" image. OOPS !
I mean: little left of his gay-leather image.

I don't like the music. Like the guitar players though.

Jb: haha, you rule!! like koella, i'm sure you would like the guitars!

Koella: well, that's nice, thank you. i'm pretty sure he didn't want a picture with me and would have much rather preferred one with any of the number of men there! hahaha. yeah, i'm not extremely knowledgeable, but from what i know, it seems that glenn tipton is to metal what PdL is to flamenco. great compositions and such.

Arash: it's more like dust pesaram divuneyeh judas priest hast, man ham vasatesh "fan" shodam. there's nothing i like better than an iranian listening to death metal!! too bad it's no more...

I was a huge Priest fan when I was a kid---HUGE. I used to follow them around like a grateful dead fan. Had Defenders of the Faith album art painted on my jacket. I can't even tell you just how many times I've seen them in concert.

Last time I saw Halford was with his band Fight, amazing show, stage dived my ass off.

I’m not trying to start a flame war and please forgive the criticism, but Glenn Tipton was a marginal player at best. He tried to reinvent himself in the mid-1980’s by improving his technique and playing notes that fell outside the pentatonic scale, e. g., dorian mode, but even after he improved he still couldn’t play better than most of the people I knew. As for compositional skill there was never much there either—mostly root, 5th, octave chords. Any talented teenager who’s had a year’s worth of practice would compare favorably to Tipton; and by that I mean he or she would at least be his equal.

hey John, no war, don't worry. i'm personally impressed with tipton's compositions. i think he's a great soloist, even if some of it is a little show-off material. i think the band as a whole has a great energy and influence in the metal world and tipton has a lot to do with the song-writing, which again, i can't say i know much about. as a listener, i think he's cool!!

Fair enough. I think most of the band's energy comes from Halford and they were pioneers in creating and promoting HM.

Awesome! I was into Racer X, and they copied a lot from Priest and did some covers. Love the vocals too. The singer in Racer X was friends with Halford and did a cover of an un released tune, heart of a lion. The guitars in Racer X were pretty amazing, even by todays standards or by flamenco standards. Congrats for you picture.


And Heart of a Lion:


The difference between Tipton and Gilbert is like the difference between Ottmar and Paco...but credit is due to the guys in priest for being the huge influence on metal, both vocals and the guitar duo thing.

I would have to totally disagree with that. If you think playing fast scale patterns in poorly written songs amazing then yes Racer X is for you, but if your cup of tea is tasteful phrasing and solid song writing than any of the two guitarist from Priest would do just fine.
By todays standards the fellas in Racer X are not even in the game.

The comparison you made between Ottmar and Paco is unfair, one plays Flamenco very well and the other plays a new age spanish guitar style very well. But lets compare Ottmar to Gilbert or Marty who are not half the musicians that Ottmar is. Has anyone hear ever heard Ottmar play a Bulerias? I have and the man can play Flamenco Puro.

To all the tuned and amazing guitarist on this forum who so easily pass judgement on players such as Juan Martin and Ottmar i say this if you cant build up please don't tare down.

So yes you can't compare Tipton to Gilbert, after all one plays music and the other fast scales, and they both do their thing reaaly well.

I confess my ignorance of JP, so I have some catching up to do there. But it's a nice photo and I thank you, Sara, for giving me the opportunity to use the one complete sentence of Farsi that I know - it's a bit formal but it's certainly true: Shoma besiar ziba hastid!

Ricardo: I have a huge crush on Paul Gilbert! haha I know a lot of you foro guys aren't too fond of Ottmar. maybe he hasn't been influential but he's still better than me! i'm glad many of you acknowledge that the guitars in Priest did have an impact. AND paul gilbert is playing in la next month and i'm sure to be there!

Estevan: well if you're going to throw compliments like that around, who needs to know anything about JP? hehe, thank you

I've always liked J.P. and while I agree that Tipton's guitar may not be true wizardry it certainly drives home the finer points of Metal. I especially like British Steel (almost can't stand looking at that cover!), Sin after Sin (Diamonds and Rust) Screaming for Vengence, and Hell Bent for Leather. I always smile when I hear Breaking The Law as it reminds me of my younger, wilder days...

Yeah, JP had some great songs, I was a teenage metalhead and every now and then I dig out some of that stuff and crank it up again. They had some kind of energy going on between the vocals and the guitars, lets not forget K K Downings contribution to the mix here.

When I first started dating my wife (girlfriend at the time), our very first date was to a JP concert! hahaaha

We were huge JP fans, but then she started getting into the Scorpions more, and it became a bit of a rival between us. I argued that she just liked Mathias' spandex. LOL

I always won the debate by just letting out a huge Halford scream...
"..SSSssssscreeeeeaaaammmming for vengance" LOL

Ah man, good times! Thanks for taking me back down memory lane.

Edit: Cool pic btw.

Cool, halford then Gilbert? Lucky you! Maybe I should come to LA. My friend Jesus lives in long beach, a great flamenco cantaor. Running into my old Metal heroes would be fun!

@Rain, I never said anything bad about Ottmar or JMartin. I guess you are right that it was not a good analogy anyway, since Tipton was the influence on Gilbert. But for me Gilbert is an amazing player, musician and Teacher. "Just fast scales" is the typical critic just about ALL my favorite musicians have suffered regardless of genre. "Too many notes". When will they ever learn how to cut out all the extra un needed notes so they can be more "musical".

Hell yeah! You could even stay with my mom and me, though we live in South Orange County, about an hour and a half from all the fun LA stuff. Whenever you do make the trip, be sure to give all of us LA people a heads up!

judas priest is certainly a legend in it's genre so thumps up sarah
Hopefully rob didn't scream in your ear....

Allthough I think Tipton is a fine guitarist I never saw him techniquely as a super player. But the same counts for kurt Cobain and so many others. Musically they invented something to my opinion. Like Tony Iomi of Black Sabbath, same story, techniquely not perfect but he invented a sound and I'm jealous now....:))

what is more important? the music or the technique.....

Sarah, Have fun with Paul Gilbert in La. If I had the chance I would come too but I would have too fly way too long.......
