Another one, Eddie Van Halen started his music career playing drums and Alex was playing guitar, They swapped and then that's when the magic happened. He picked up on Jimmy Page with the finger tapping and took it to another level, So much as to when he finger tapped the fret board, He would have his back to the audience so they couldn't copy his technique. Another one for you, "Eruption" was Eddie's warm up before he went on stage but when they recorded it in the studio, He messed it up and it was mastered with that flaw.

Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton has revealed that he's been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and will be sitting out most, if not all, of the band's tour dates in support of their upcoming Firepower LP.

Tipton, 70, joined Judas Priest prior to the recording of their first album in 1974 and has remained a steady fixture of the lineup since.

According to a statement issued by the band, Tipton isn't quitting, although he's currently only able to "play and perform some of the Priest songs that are less challenging" and "due to the nature of Parkinson's progression he wants to let you all know that he won't be be touring as such."

You may have to stop touring, but don’t let it keep you from living!
