Judas Priest: "Epitaph" Tour Rig Rundown; Video

France, 2011.

Judas Priest guitar techs Adrian Vines and Greg "Weasel" Morganrecently gave EMG a rundown of the gear Priest's Richie Faulknerand Glenn Tipton are using on the band's "Epitaph" world tour. Check out the footage below.

In a recent interview with The Aquarian Weekly, Judas Priest singer Rob Halford stated about Faulkner's addition to the band following the departure of the band's original guitarist, K.K. Downing, "He's turned it up. He's just added a new dynamic to the band, and that's not to be disparaging to K.K., who lives with us every night because we're playing his songs. Most of the songs we're playing on this tour were written byGlenn, Ken and myself, but Richie's got his own vibe. He's on the edge of the stage most of the night, and he is just interacting in such a special way that the Priest fans have totally accepted him. He's just got this tremendous guitarmanship and showmanship that you can't take your eyes off of him. We've never had that type of depth and dimension before in that respect. He's brilliant."
