[HOT ROCKIN' METAL GODDESS] Tuesday, May 10, 2011 10:14:30 PM 
Exactly Budred!! KK needs to do what is right for him. Whatever happened, I'm sure that Rob, Glenn, Ian and Scott tried to work it out with him. They don't want to go out without KK. And for all those people that think that somehow the fans can change this? Yeah, next time KK comes over for lunch, I'll make sure to stage an intervention so that they can all work this out. WTF? And exactly how does boycotting the tour get KK to come back??? It doesn't! Respect his decision because he is entitled to it. Of course we aren't happy about it, but when you are done, you are DONE! Maybe he just realized that even though he said yes to the Epitaph tour, he just didn't want to do it. Let the man have peace and appreciate everything that he has given us. If you can't support the new line-up, then walk away. You can't FORCE someone to do what you want them to do!

I am deliberatly not listening to Richie before the show. I want to hear it right then and there. His former performance may be good, great, or whatever, but I will hold my opinion until I actually see the band. I just feel better off doing that. lol

Well said, Bud.  I think the only decent thing to do is support K.K.'s decision, and support the band by giving Richie a chance to prove himself as a member of JP.  It has become way too easy to rip into him - but if Rob and the boys have decided that he is a worthy replacement, then that's all I need to know.  I'm sure that this was not a decision they made lightly, and they must have 'auditioned' Richie enough to agree he could fit into the monumental void K.K. left.  Maybe Richie will infuse some new fire into their creativity, but we have to give it a chance first before deciding it's going to blow.  As for K.K., as a 'rock celebrity' , he deserves the same freedom that us regular folk have, to make a change in his life that's good for him, whether we're pissed about it or not.  Sometimes you just gotta call it a day.  I hope he finds kindness, good wishes and respect when he runs into his fans, not hostility and crap.   [Show/Hide Quoted Message] (Quoting Message by Budred from Tuesday, May 10, 2011 8:04:20 PM)

Personally I just think things are getting beyond a joke with them. The only decent thing they've done since Halford came back was AOR and I just see a general lack of respect for their fans.

Let's see, rip the Priest, close the mind, and don't give it a chance
or move on, open the mind, and listen to what the fuck they sound like before commenting.
 Just living life for the last 45 years tells me that shit happens, things change and usually you can't do a thing about it.
K.K. is done, Priest rolls on, and none of us know how good or bad it will be. I can't help but laugh at how narrow minded
some seem to be. No one
has to like the new line-up but I'll listen to it before I bash them.  I'm curious, does anyone here want to retire some day
and do you really give a rat's ass what anyone else thinks?  It's your life and your decision and you'll make it based on how you
feel about it.
K.K. may be a metal machine but under it he's a human like the rest of us. Let the man have peace and ride into
the sunset if that's what he wants. He doesn't have to make us happy, he has to make himself happy. More angry posts please
because they really are becoming funny.Sort of entertaining actually.

HRMG,  Regarding Sunday's post.  I know about trolls.  Have dealt with a couple myself.

JD, I was soooo chill when I made that post fiddy cents owed me change! lol

As for the whole KK being gone and Richie Faulkner playing dual to Glenn.  I simply don't see dual there.  I'm disappointed a different selection wasn't made.  To me, his style is so close to Glenn's there leaves no interest.  But that's my personal interpretation of what a JP twin axe attack should play like.  Don't know how better else to describe it.

When I heard Rob left, I bought Jugulator "to support the band".  Wasn't 'til I watched Ripper do covers of old material that his style grew on me.  When Rob & the band reunited the synergy was there.  The JP magic was in the air!  No matter the strife backstage, in each personal camp.

You're right.  Our support of this tour is important.  Fans should be able to come here and express their opinions without feeling their active status will be affected if  the core group allienates them because they ("true fans", new / old) express their opinions differently.

The trolls ALWAYS rat themselves out.  For some reason they continue to get attention?!

OK Richie Rich call play the guitar. Thats not the point here. Can the wanker play golf? Can the wanker play tennis? Can the wanker tell Rob to stop joking and he'll be late if he wants to be. Can the wanker tell Scott to stop drinking? Can the wanker understand Ian doesn't like to move? Can the wanker read Glenn's moves and realize his riff is ending and its my turn to shine? Can the wanker notice scaffolding that is improperly installed and ask Rob to drive the Harley in from the other side of the stage away from the danger so he doesn't cut his head off like he almost did that one time in the past? Chemistry is formed over years not weeks. There is a thing called commitment and dedication to ones sense of loyalty. Are you going to sell your mate down the river for a few more pounds? Are you going to stop the trolley and wait for your mate to jump on? There is always room for KK and Jello.

 Am I getting through to anyone?

 For all of those who are OK with RICHie Rich replacing KK...your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries!
[Brian_Evans] Tuesday, May 10, 2011 2:40:28 PM 
 Richie Faulkner is outrageously sick man, this guy can play anything. I don't think they could have picked a better replacement.

Here he is playin the excellent "All along the Watchtower" perfectly. K.K. who??? Ha!! Just kidding HRMG, dont go getting your panties in a bunch

Here comes the revolution... time for Richie solution... here comes the revolution... don't accept The JP evolution>

KK or Nothing. Its that simple.
[Doubting Thomas] Tuesday, May 10, 2011 12:21:48 PM 
KK is out. I understand but don’t fully understand. What I don’t understand is posts such as: I can’t wait to see the new line up!” or “ KK is gone… deal with it”or “I don’t like KK gone but what can we do about it?”. Let me tell you about CRAP. This world would be covered in crap if someone didn’t say “I don’t like this crap and why can’t we just get this crap out of here?” The answer was pipes. I believe a pipe could work in this case of KK coming back to the band…a peace pipe. Just so you know… this may never happen since he retired on 4-20-2011.
What we can understand is world problems can be solved sometimes through diplomacy. I also have been told and believe that your vote makes a difference in a democracy. I also believe in the free trade market with the capitalist rule of supply and demand , that will and can, dictate the cause and affect/effect of a business. Judas Priest has become a business. When KK started the band Judas Priest it was a passion for music. We the fans listen to Judas Priest because of the music not the COST of the music. Now we are faced with buying what the Judas Priest business is trying to sell us. When we go to the store we don’t have to buy the cheapest bread they are selling. It is also said that Man does not live on bread alone. I don’t want Richie Sourdough. There is no way we should be paying full price for Judas Priest without KK or buying what JP management and Sony are selling us.
THE ONLY WAY I’M GOING TO BUT TICKETS TO THIS EPiTAPH TOUR IS: A) Ticket prices are at 1981 POINT OF ENTRY prices @ Long Beach Arena, CALIFORNIA,USA : Floor Seats $15.00USD; Loge Seats $12.00USD; Nose Bleed Seats $10.00USD. B) Ticket sales are so low because KK is not touring that they reduce the price 90% off or at 1981 tour schedule pricing and throw in discount coupons for JP paraphernalia.  Or finally C) KK Downing rejoins Judas Priest for the Epitaph Tour and I pay full Market Price.  
Sir Winston Churchill said something to the effect that  we will never surrender. I feel the same as Churchill and I will continue to complain and boycott the Epitaph Tour until KK rejoins the band. I’ll say it again, THERE IS NO WAY WE SHOULD BE PAYING FULL PRICE FOR JUDAS PRIEST TICKETS WITHOUT KK.  And don’t be sayin’… the cost has gone up because of having lasers and rental balloons from Pink Floyd via courtesy of Roger Waters. We don’t need that shit…WE NEED KK with IAN, ROB, GLENN, and SCOTT  
And don’t forget to pay RICHie RICH for his time and thank him for the nice photo holding his guitar.

KK Downing will tour. Nostradamus.

Yeah, it leaves you wondering for sure WTF happened! I just don't see how they got Richie in a month...... but I guess it's possible.

Yes, I have to agree with you there! If he doesn't want to be there, it just wouldn't be worth seeing him. It just SUCKS that it had to turn out this way. But what can we do..... not a damn thing. Either go or don't go. We'll soon see how good Richie is - I'm sure there will be plenty of videos floating around of the new line-up.

Take or Leave
KK is out
the last tour and I ve lost my life time to see the BEST METAL GUITAR DUO OF THE HISTORY
Hope you who live in UK have once chance in the future to see the band with the duo for a FINAL GIG in London or Wacken
Fuck, my fate is decided, NO KK

[guidogodoy] Tuesday, May 10, 2011 3:25:32 AM 
I hadn't seen that interview before. Sad, now, in a way.

Hey, he gave props to Detroit but still, WTF happened?!?

Nupe or Nope, Dope or Hope, Fan or Can, I don't like it when a thread ends in... I hope I didn't offend anyone and my hands are clean. Judas Priest...  the name SAYS IT ALL. When my Mom first heard me say I like the band "JUDAS PRIEST" she shaked her head. She didn't say"THATS NICE". I think the first time I glanced at the written words "Judas Priest" as a phrase was in a Bob Dylan album lyric of my older brother showing me. The first time I heard the words "Judas Priest "spoken was when I was watching "Gun Smoke" as a very young child on television. It caught my attention but I didn't understand. The first time I heard the band "Judas Priest"  I was thinking who is that singer and the guitar work is marvelous. Well, I saw the band finally and I can honestly say it was KK that caught my attention. I CANNOT and WILL NOT believe the situation with KK not playing on the Epitaph Tour.... is something that is impossible to fix. I also would have said it would be impossible for the Dallas Mavericks to sweep the Los Angeles Lakers in four straight... yet the Lakers are out of the NBA 2011 playoffs... losing four straight.
I KNOW KK IS SAYING TO SUPPORT THE EPITAPH TOUR BECAUSE HE DOESN'T WANT TO OFFEND ANYONE. I also know if there is a truth worth fighting for... it is protesting KK's leaving of the band under these unusual circumstances and finding a solution to the problem. KK IS SAYING HE's IN GOOD HEALTH and EVERYTHING IS FINE. NOW THE FANS NEED TO SAY "WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO CHANGE HIS MIND?" ... or at least findout .... If KK found the magic lamp and had three wishes surrounding the scheduled Epitaph Tour...WHAT WOULD THEY BE? I'm sure none of KK's wishes would be staying retired and allowing JP management to keep the status quo while fellow band mates do nothing or don't want to rock the boat. Edited at: Monday, May 09, 2011 5:24:35 PM Edited at: Monday, May 09, 2011 5:25:49 PM Edited at: Monday, May 09, 2011 5:32:40 PM
