Judas Priest have launched the Glenn Tipton Parkinson’s Foundation, named after the heavy metal act’s guitarist who announced that he had been battling the disease for a decade prior to their Firepower Tour.
“It was the band that suggested we start a foundation which, although in my name, is really a Judas Priest foundation,” Tipton said in a statement.
All proceeds from the foundation will benefit a “pioneering new treatment called MR guided focused ultrasound thalamotomy which although in its early stages has already had great success with a Parkinson’s related condition called essential tremor,” Tipton wrote. MORE
