Watching the vid of the incident, Richie absolutely nails the solos.  Quite incredible.

I am praying hard for Richie!!! Once again this is VERY personal to me. Last year when covid was at its peak my 20 year old son had open heart surgery to replace an aortic valve. I couldnít even be in the hospital because of covid, it was awful. The surgery was 9 hours, he was on bypass the entire time with his heart being fixed while it was on the table next to him. I sat home getting updates on the phone not  knowing if my son was going to wake up from this, I could barely breathe until he woke up. Here we are over a year later and he is still recovering but doing well. My love and positive energy are with Richie and his loved ones. ❤️❤️💪🙏✊🤟

He physically healed well but I didnít realize open heart surgery causes hormonal changes and he is struggling emotionally. On top of that my father who he was very close with passed away from brain cancer only weeks before this. Thank you for showing the love! Seeing your child suffer is completely shattering.

Thank you! Much Love to you as well! I did not mean to make this thread about my son as I am such a fan of Richie, I just feel the pain he and his family are going through. He is so lucky to be alive. Iím sure he looks at life in a different light as my son and my family does. ❤️‍🩹❤️

Halford also apparently diagnosed with cancer during the pandemic. Thankfully he's in the clear now but add that to the list of bad luck the band has had the past few years.

So, founding member Glenn Tipton has heath issues after 258 years with the band = they get a touring guitarist
Touring guitarist who was just an help goes back to being a producer = he doesn't get replaced

Like, seriously?

Wow...I'd have to give it some thought, but I'd be hard pressed to come up with a Priest set list that would legitimately work with only one guitar.  Even if Ian Hill started playing with more distortion or used an 8-string bass, there'd still be no way to recreate the harmony guitar parts that are a HUGE part of Priest's arsenal.  Really, the only way to do it would be to have a backing track live, which would be LAME.

Absolutely ridiculous. Time to suck it up, get off your high horses and let KK back in the band.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

I think Kenny done set fire to that bridge. Maybe it might have happened had he not spent the last 4 years shooting his mouth off about them, but not now. To be fair, I like the guy a lot, and I'd probably be more interested in seeing his band than the authentic-pseudo-Priest, but he hasn't exactly been diplomatic.  :lol

Why couldn't they just get someone else and someone who can play?  This doesn't make a lot of sense.  It was a missed opportunity getting Sneap anyway.

Hey lads, I'll do it, sign me up!

It's a weird dynamic for sure; I read an article about KK in a recent Guitar World, and it's bizarre.  It's like Priest WANT to be AC/DC, Maiden and Tool with the secrecy and dealing with things "in house", but they can't pull it off credibly.  And it's hard to know where to place the blame/credit.   If there WAS one leader, by all accounts it was Glenn.  So with him removed from the situation, it's hard to say what's the real story behind.  Rob is by all accounts a decent guy with an eye to the big picture; I know Ian handles all the business stuff, so maybe it's him.  I don't know.

I know Richie is a good guitar player, but I have no interest in this.  I'm with you, El Barto; get Les Binks back in KK's Priest and I'd go see that in a small club for sure.

Andy Sneap just released a statement saying that he wasn't part of the decision and is disappointed, despite knowing that he was always just a temporary replacement.

This all reads like the band wants to save money by cutting a position out of their lineup because touring revenue is down from the last two years.  Assuming they don't hire a second touring guitarist, then they'll just play along to a backing track.

Yeah, I just saw that. The earlier report made it look like Sneap was backing out. And honestly, that's about the only real explanation for this.

And it's hard to know where to place the blame/credit.   If there WAS one leader, by all accounts it was Glenn.  So with him removed from the situation, it's hard to say what's the real story behind.  Rob is by all accounts a decent guy with an eye to the big picture; I know Ian handles all the business stuff, so maybe it's him.  I don't know.
Tipton is Judas Priest, even now. He's cowriting the albums. He's in all the promotional art. He's still showing up on tour with them. And as far as I know Jayne Andrews still manages them, so the power dynamic hasn't changed. That's also why Kenny will not be part of the picture.

A lot of people often talk about Maiden and Priest and just why the Irons are on another level to JP.
Can you imagine IM going on tour with only one guitarist?
Maiden's management has mostly (Blaze?) made spot on decisions throughout their career.
This decision makes no sense at all, and given that Richie might not be in the best of health either.

Been thinking about this.

Comparing the bands, Judas Priest is also older. Who knows what will happen health wise to Iron Maiden, and what predicament that may put Steve, Bruce, and Rod in.

Rob and Ian cannot need the money, I wouldn't think. Perhaps they're performing because they want to. It's what they do.

I'm certain Rob doesn't.  Ian, on the other hand, receives no publishing income, so he only gets paid from album and merch sales and touring (although at this point, the number of people getting a piece of that pie is down to 3).

The public Rob Halford is a bit of a character/caricature, but the man is humble and genuinely loves what he does and the fans.

I was actually going to suggest this earlier. Not only could you do it, but you'd probably learn what you don't already know in two weeks. They're going to spend two months figuring out how to play Electric Eye with only one guitar. It would be dirt cheap and a helluva lot easier to find a fill in.

I never heard him play a lick, but screw it, I'm in, that would rule. After that happens we can petition to get Jingle Boy as the new Haken keyboardist.
