Glenn Tipton has a new sight out and it's pretty sweet. Especially the history:

"Itís said that everything happens for a reason. At the time The Flying Hat Band were working with an agency in Birmingham owned by Jim Simpson, which happened to be the same agency as Judas Priest. Priest were with Gull Records who suggested the band either add a keyboard player or another guitarist. As the Flying Hat Band was breaking up they approached me to see if I was interested in joining. This was in May 1974 before the first album "Rocka Rolla". I agreed, and it didn't take long to realize that we had a very unique chemistry as a band and particularly as writers. Something very special had happened. Something so special that nearly forty years on we are still writing and recording, and touring the world together."
