Glenn Tipton


Glenn Tipton (1947-present): a Musician from Birmingham, UK.


lthough Glenn Raymond Tipton (born 25 October 1947) did not pick up the guitar until he was 19 years old, he was taught by his mother how to play the piano at a young age. Tipton's first band was Shave 'Em Dry, with future Starfighters and Ozzy Osbourne drummer Barry Scrannage. The band turned into Merlin, before becoming The Flying Hat Band. It didn't last long and soon split. Most noted for his role in Judas Priest, specifically the British Steel album, Tipton is also known for his complex, sometimes classically-influenced solos with a unique guitar-playing technique.

In 1994 he branched out to create his self-named solo act as a side project to release Baptizm of Fire (1997) and Edge of the World (2006).

On 12 February 2018, Tipton announced that he would step down from touring when he revealed that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, with which he was first diagnosed with in 2008.
