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.
Hummm.......I swear I read somewhere he left over money disputes.

Given what Scott Travis does with the band, I can't believe they thought Binks was too technical for them, but then again given who they got to replace him, I guess it is possible.
