Glenn Tipton

Real/full name:
Glenn Raymond Tipton
75 (born Oct 25th, 1947)
Place of birth:

Although Tipton 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 piano playing features prominently on Judas Priest's second album Sad Wings of Destiny, especially on "Epitaph", a song that features no guitar. In addition his brother was a guitarist in a band called the Atlantics. When his brother wasn't around Tipton ...


He was ranked #19 on rock magazine Hit Parader's list of 100 greatest metal guitarists, and #10 on Digital DreamDoor's 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists.

Steve Burton was one of his bandmates in The Flying Hat Band.
