The cover artwork for JUDAS PRIEST guitarist Glenn Tipton's collection of recordings with the late, great THE WHO bassist John Entwistle and drummer Cozy Powell (RAINBOW, BLACK SABBATH), entitled "Edge of the World", has been posted online at JudasPriest.com."Edge of the World" is scheduled for release on March 7 via Rhino Records. Tipton recently told Rockdetector.com that he "was really happy when I found out [Entwistle] wanted to get involved because he told me he was always a bit of a metalhead at heart too. . . He turned up with twelve bass guitars. There were quite a few weird ones too. John really had a unique sound. He could do anything too. Very versatile because he could play that steady groove but he could also play some amazing jazz and finger-picking too. Anything you asked of him, John could do it. He just blew us away with what he could do. There's a song on 'Edge Of The World' called 'Give Blood' that John really made his own. I remember we were having trouble with it until John put the bass down. I remember Cozy and I looking at each other with a big grin because John just made it really kick. As a bass player, John was a rare breed. He's actually a very busy player but he is still able to drive the track. His bass just sits there giving that backbone but at the same time he's able to make it distinctive too."
