That sucks! Wish him a speedy recovery. Maybe they can talk to KK to support them for the rest of the tour, he seemed interested in his latest interviews.

Sad to hear. The disease takes no prisoners.
Only fitting for KK to be on the front line.

Very sad to hear. Another legend taken out of the game by such an awful disease.

It's probably for the best that he takes off now though; I saw Priest a couple of years ago when they were touring with Steel Panther and it was pretty obvious that Mr. Tipton was struggling a bit to play the guitar at the time; especially when he took his solos. He was a legend and made his spot in the rock n roll history books, so now he can enjoy a nice long retirment :headbang

Lets hope KK returns, his golf resort/hotel project has gone bust, so even tho' it won't be his personal money that's lost, it's still gonna hit him, some Priest therapy is just what he needs right now :thumbs

In a recent interview he said he'd actually like to do it, but Priest is not a "three guitar band like Iron Maiden" thus it was a bad idea. Now with this new situation, it would actually work out.
