Synyster Gates on Judas Priest's Glenn Tipton retirement from touring: "It's really sad"


Avenged Sevenfold's Synyster Gates was recently interviewed by Meltdown of Detroit's WRIF radio station. You can read some excerpts below.


Asked for his thoughts about Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton, who recently announced that he was retiring from the road due to his battle with Parkinson's disease, Gates said: "Yeah, it's really, really sad. But I think they just have to find a new position in the band for him. It's not like he's done and out of the mix; I mean, they're still gonna make music together. He's the heart and soul of the band and such a great player. So they'll figure it out. It's heartbreaking, but life goes on. And it's really cool that they're not moving on from him — they're just continuing on. So I love it."
