Let $ G(s) := \frac{\zeta'(s)}{\zeta(s)} + \frac{\zeta'(1-s)}{\zeta(1-s)}$ where $s$ is not a zero of zeta.

$G$ has real zeros and a pair of complex zeros near $\frac12 \pm 6i$.

Partial results:

By differentiating $\log{\xi(s)} - \log{\xi(1-s)}$ one gets:

$$ G(s) = -1/2\psi(1/2+s/2)+1/2\pi\tan(\pi s/2) -1/2 \psi(s/2) +\log\pi \qquad (1) $$

when $s$ is not a zeta zeros. Probably (1) can be simplified since $\Re G(s) = \Re\left(-1/(s-1)+1/s+\log\pi -(\psi(s/2)+\psi((1-s)/2+1)/2\right)$

Are there other complex zeros of (1), especially in the critical strip?
