Celebrating his birthday today is Glenn Tipton, guitar player of Judas Priest.Glenn was born in Blackheath, England, 1947. What makes Glenn Tipton very unique is that he didnt start playing guitar until he was 19 which is fairly late to start playing in a guitar sense.

Glenn joined Judas Priest in 1974 and hasn't looked back. One of the most influential guitar players playing in one of the most influential bands of all time! Along with a couple solo albums under his belt as well.
