Glenn Tipton's brother Gary posted the following comments today on a Facebook post:

"Glenn now very frail."  "Very worrying. . . .  Parkinson's now getting more of a hold, if you saw Glenn now you would be shocked."

Needless to say, it doesn't sound good.

Wait, Ritchie comes up with the setlists?

Rob's comment was that when they write a setlist, everyone in the band needs to be on board with it.  They don't want a band member to be grumpy about having to play a certain song. 

So he mentioned that Ritchie will send him setlist ideas and he has to respond with "please no Painkiller songs early in the set, I need to warm up!"  I'm sure Ritchie puts stuff in there and the band might be really open to bringing some of the older songs back.

So they opened with One Shot At Glory.  :lol

I've kind of been fearing this news for a while.  Only a matter of time I guess. Needless to say this makes me very sad.  :'(

Yeah I had a feeling. Last few music videos they did Glenn was barely in them like they filmed like a minute or so to splice in every now and then. Especially noticeable in Crown of Thorns where they would only show him for like a second or two at a time if that.

Rob started pulling some punches to land others quite some time ago. They know how to pace a setlist to accommodate him, so was always able to hit the important bits. The Jawbreaker thing would certainly qualify. The problem is that he had to keep holding back more and more, so the important bits became fewer and fewer. Case in point, if it took four songs for him to really make his presence known, that's really a bummer. And Riding was one he'd learned to sing pretty well even for an old guy, so if he's struggling with that now, another bummer.

For my part I tuned out when he couldn't belt out CONDEMNED TO HELL any more. The Sentinel was always a highlight for me, and when he couldn't do it anymore it just became depressing. It sounds like they keep putting together nice setlists which I wouldn't mind seeing, but you don't have the KK/Tipton thing anymore, and it saddens me to hear Rob nowadays, so I just skip the whole thing. That said, it does make me happy that they're still selling midsized venues.

I agree about The Sentinel.  I hate that he cut out that Condemned to Hell high note years ago.

Here is the video from the show I saw.  I queued it up to Riding on the Wind.  Listening back, I wouldn't say that he truly struggled.  It's just that his enunciation seems to fade a little when he's singing in that style live, and his voice is older and grittier than the clean, high notes of his younger days.  But the clean "Wiiiiiiiind" in the chorus is great. 

Again, my point of comparison is hearing that song for the last 20 years on Live Insurrection, which was recorded in 2000.  So in my mind, I'm thinking "fuck, it just doesn't sound as good as I'm used to hearing" but in reality, he's still pretty damn good.  I'm just used to my favorite recording of the song from 22 years prior to that show.

The end of Jawbreaker is around 18:30, and that's when he just started wailing away and held the last note out.  His clean singing is still fantastic, like on Beyond the Realms of Death.

Oh no : (

I know it's a very dark thought but I hope we're not gonna relive the Magnum situation (guitarist Tony Clarkin passing away days before the release of their latest album).
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

I havenít spun the singles more than once each, but that was enough to make me quite optimistic about the record. I thought Firepower was a great way to end their studio run, if it was going to be their last, but it looks like this one might be a worthy successor!

Didn't say we didn't like it, it's just the weakest part of the song.  It's perfectly okay, but it sounds like an afterthought to the rest of the song.  Like the chorus had the least amount of time put into it.

That riff before the solo fucking rips though.  Such Painkiller vibes.
