Default Re: Les Binks

I read and article about Les Binks, were the rest of Judas Priest members decided to change out direction regarding drumming, because Binks was too technical for them...I was surprised!!!

Yes, mate. He helped Judas Priest to create the song "Beyond The Realms Of Death" it's kind like their Stairway To Heaven. He got some credit for it.

I can't for the life of my figure out why they hired Dave Holland to replace him after Les left.
A total night and day situation.

And given his talent, I'm a bit surprised Les Binks fell off the map after he left Judas Priest.

Les also played a bit of guitar, and helped write a few songs during his time with Preist.
The back of beyond ...
