I love both they have very diffrent styles but they both compliment each other like Glens solos on metal gods, realms,painkiller, are just a few examples of his greatness and KK some of his best solos are Before the dawn, deciever, victim to name of few and when they share solos those are the best i think like on songs like ram it down hellrider deal with the devil metal meltdown and the sentinel i mean cmon it don't get any better than that.

both have unique and complimentary styles they are the best tandem ever! top KK solos for me-- Sinner, Jawbreaker, Don't go, The rage-- Glenn--- Realms, Touch of evil, stained class, Metal gods

I recently watched a 10 minute you tube clip of Eddie Van Halen playing an extended version of "Eruption".  After about 2 1/2 minutes it got really boring and I started to loose interest.  It got to the point where it seemed he was playing just for the sake of showing off.  Music should transmit an emotion from the performer to the audience whether that is anger, happiness or sadness.  It shouldn't be "hey look at me... look how good I am."  I read an article many years ago that said that a guitar solo is as much about what you leave out as what you put in.  KK and Glenn may not have the technical ability of a Steve Vai or Eddie Van Halen but I think they convey their musical message much better.

The two reasons I picked up a guitar 20 years ago and am still playing.......they are an endless source of inspiration for me!

best damn guitarists in world. They complement each other so well and when you watch em play live there is magic in the air. Glenn and kk, dave and marty from megadeth two best pairs in metal.

two of the most dedicated and innovative guitarists in metal an influence on all who have came since ( whether they admit it or not )

Glenn and KK are the best partner!!! They don't have egos so that their partnership lasted 35 years!!!!!!!
It's extremely rare in the music business, isn't it?
Many bands broke up battling over who plays more solos.  
Even when Glenn plays his solos, such as Touch Of Evil, KK's playing in the back is integral.
The same thing can be said during KK's solos. 
Their twin leads are absolutely beautiful that move my soul. 

I'm aware that there are players who do more technical stuff which sound like plain machine and that don't move me. 
Glenn and KK do it just right. Not too much but just right.
Thank you, Glenn & KK for your beautiful heavy metal music which will last eternally!!!!!!!!

It's the contrast between the technical virtuosity of Glenn and KK's unhinged wailing. For a band with such a harmonic sound, they're the absolute best combination. Not to mention that they're both great individually and great songwriters. And they've both influenced so many guitar players it's insane.

One of my favorite moments in this life was when Glenn pointed me out in the crowd for going extra crazy.

I can't express how much I love the music these two guys have made. The guitar duel exploding into harmony on Hellrider makes me feel like I could escape from my skull it gets me so pumped up. It's euphoric really.

metallo nailed it in my opinion....its the sum of the parts that make them what they are! i love the solo stuff, its always good....but nothing can touch when they get together as priest.

 The best guitar duo ever and an inspiration to rock/metal guitar players worldwide.
[HalfordIsGod!!] Saturday, October 16, 2010 6:46:05 AM 
They are the best duo guitarists ever in my eyes. There are times they are so close in tune ya cant tell its 2 playing that to me is GODLY!!!! Glen has always been the finesse player of the 2 as where K.K. is the wide open one of the 2 makes for a great pair.

I watch the 30th Annaversary DVD of British Steel every weekend with some mates and we are just speechless and in awe of  KK and Glen, they personify Heavy Metal. I must be the only bloke in town who has the DVD and everytime I show it to my mates it  just keeps getting better.

Maybe they are not the best guitar players of ever, but it is sure, they are the best guitar duo of ever. Together are something special. Judas Priest are  
the best metal band not only for Rob Halford, but for five fantastic musicians that joining together ther way of playing music their experience create something really special and always different.

Thank you guys

Strangely enough I've never thought of that. If they can do a 10 minute "Loch Ness" they can
do a 4 or 5 minute guitar track. Damn, you have me wanting to hear that now.
