Now if Scott Travis or Ian Hill left it wouldn't be a big deal. Those guys, although good musicians, haven't exactly written alot. Priest at its core is Halford, Tipton, Downing. That's where most of those bad ass tunes come from. The fact that the audience is going to see an weakened Judas Priest is kind of sad. Despite the fact that he played with Lauren Harris (Daughter of a Master composer), this Faulkner guy will probably do a good job. But it just won't be the same. Hopefully they play Cathedral Spires and Rocka Rolla.
