George Lynch wants to replace Glenn Tipton on Judas Priest

George Lynch, renowned guitarist for the bands Dokken and Lynch Mob, expressed his desire to play in the legendary rock band Judas Priest.


The guitarist said:

“To this day, I love Priest. I wanted them to call me and hire me. Glenn Tipton, hello? ”, Lynch stated in the video below. The possibility of joining Judas Priest comes from the departure of guitarist Glenn Tipton, due to Parkinson’s disease.

During this period, the producer of the current Priest record and musician Andy Sneap entered the Firepower Tour with the band during the past year, however, according to him, only to replace, with this, nothing has been confirmed, so far, about if he will stay in the group.

Bassist Ian Hill, however, has already expressed his satisfaction with the producer’s performance, and that the decision of which path to take is up to Sneap.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
