Judas Priest Guitarist: ''Flappy Bird' Is Addictive, But I Only Got to Three'
Discussing the unpredictable way technology might develop in the near future, Judas Priest axe legend Glenn Tipton took the recent Ultimate Classic Rock chat down the unpredictable route of its own, starting a discussion about the rage-inducing "Flappy Bird" game.

"They're playing a game that they call 'Flapping Bird,' and apparently you can't download it now. And it is addictive, I only got to about three and I think a good score is about 200," Glenn jokingly noted.

During the rest of the chat, the band discussed the internet, saying how we're basically "stuck with it," but have to work out its good sides, despite quite a few bad ones.

"You gotta say it's a good thing," Tipton said. "We're stuck with it, you have to work with it and you have to take the good points. There are bad points too, obviously, but you have to take the good with the bad. The internet's there, work with it."

Explaining how "there was no tweeting, instagramming or facebooking" back when the metal gods kicked off their musical journey, singer Rob Halford also agreed that embracing the web and new technologies is a must, at least to a certain extent.

"You look at the way technology has advanced in the last 20 years - it's staggering, it really is," he said. "But you have to jump on the train, otherwise you'll get left behind. Particularly in terms of communication."
