    I saw this as well; how the sands of time for us run ever lower.
    All the reason to make the most of it while we can.

    Put another F'in dime in the Jukebox, baby.

    The sig of a fellow on another forum I visit says:
    "You weren't born to just pay bills and die"

    I have had this view for some time now, having paid my dues at least as far as my children are grown.
    That puts it into the words that work for me.

    He has been fighting for 10 years, and meanwhile the progression starts limiting him stronger. In the age of 70. Where it is just normal that musicians have to go back a step, even without parkinson.

    And how many of the old stars can play their concerts without backup guitarists?

    Anyway, Parkinson is a terrible desease. Let's simply hope he'll manage to slow down its process as good as possible and find other possibilities to enjoy his life.

    With K.K. Downing retiring a while back to tend to his golf course and now Tipton out of the picture it's the first time Priest will have a new generation of guitarists. It will be interesting to see how their music will sound in the future.

    I will simply say it this way and maybe even Glenn will read this or someone may pass it on to him.
    Thank you and may you live as healthy and comfortable as possible given your current health battles.

    This is very sad news. I have watched this debilitating disease in action a couple of times, before the advent of surgery where a small portion of the brain is removed to greatly slow the progress of the condition. To think, not too long ago nothing was known about what causes this condition, the breakthroughs coming as a result of an illicit fentanyl (synthetic heroin like substance) cook gone wrong. Hopefully the breakthroughs in treatment continue. I'll echo what others have said in hoping that Glenn can maintain a quality of life & find new interests to pursue. Cheers
