 I guess everyone has to vent somewhere ...that's one of the reasons for a message board.

 Dude, no one besides the people directly involved know exactly what happened and who's to blame but all sides involved decided they wouldn't publicly say why . I am - or actually was - very pissed off and shocked at the way they separated. Hell yeah.
Like one of those divorces that are very sour and the children feel helpless between the warring sides. 

But you can't let that detract from the fact that there is this amazing NEW guitarist with Priest. 

I think I am liking the management even with the crappy announcements. 

If it pisses you guys off, I'm all for it!!!

                      JUDAS PRIEST MANAGEMENT!!

This is a downer...KK is as much Priest as Glenn and Rob....Bummmed. Glad I saw them in thier prime back on the  Defenders Tour with Ted Nugent in Germany. Will be stoked t see at The Joint in Vegas

 There are a lot of rumours going on. I can't believe that management would insist on KK touring if he is hurt, and I can't see how him being hurt would cause a war of words between anybody.

[icomearoundnow] Friday, June 03, 2011 3:51:12 PM 
I got from a good source that the whole thing was due to a business disagreement with management. I also noticed that KK is mixed too low on "Touch of Evil Live"..which is shocking and appalling. JP on Idol was fine with me, I'm still mad they didn't get 'Reckless' on Top Gun..

You sound like you have some inside info on this Mr. Luxton. I wasn't aware that KK had wrist injuries or that the other band members were messing around thinking that he would come back etc.

If KK didn't fancy touring the world again then so be it.  I was so shocked that he was probably the last member of the band to want to retire.  However, if he's had wrist injuries and he can't get the enthusiasm for the tour then this is the best thing.  The other guys were messing around cos they couldn't believe he meant it and would come back.  Then they had to decide what to do, they would probably have lost a lot of money if they just finished the band there and then and if they really do want to carry on then great.  It will depend on how Richie fits into the band because if there too many problems then they will just call it a day.  I like the idea of someone like Tony Iommi touring with the band but it probably wouldnt have worked long term and this way the band many be able to carry on for a few more years yet.  Lets wish them all the best of luck and look forward to a great tour.

Report & footage from the recent Los Angeles press conference.

I have been pretty quiet here regarding this subject. I love ALL of the guys in this band. I do not know the specifics of what went on and I would hate to speculate on it. I do know that KK Downing is a wonderful person and I wish him nothing but the best. I already miss him terribly. As for Richie Faulkner I will give him a chance, he is giving me the chance to still see this awesome band. No, it will definately not be the same but I will still be happy to hear the other guys and see the other guys.

I think we all agree that they should kick their management right in the ass and out the door!! Better yet, the fans could all line up and management could run through the gauntlet of pissed off fans! I still think KK was onboard for the tour at first and then something happened after that, but who knows. I'm not going to judge Faulkner until I see him either. I wish him well, it's got to be very hard trying to step in now with all that is going on.

I want to see Faulkner before I judge, but if kk didnt want it then so be it.  that happened with holland.... but no one sold tour tix that tour  before they told us the band changed.

I hope they kick some ass here.  then they can kick some managment ass too.

Management, == asleep, afraid, or clueless. Perhaps all of them together? I think so.

I agree completely. The way this was all handled was utter bullshit. Just another reason they should kick their management to the curb.... I still believe that if this had been handled differently, KK would be going on the Epitaph tour, but we'll never really know.
I'm glad to hear that you will go see them live - I hope you have been practicing that bottle flipping and making a Rita falls, because I plan on taping every moment of it!!

"Real" heavy Metal (period)!  Doesn't matter if it's British.  Though they are British.  They (the core of JudasPriest) are HeavyMetal

I choose to withhold any further discussion of how I see Faulkner fitting into the picture until after I see them live.  It's taken an entire month to let it sink in that the majority of my irritation lies with what is being said on behalf of the band and how this whole business was handled.  Yeah.  I've said in the past that I support managements decisions.  But I withdraw that statement.  This whole mess could have gone down with a LOT less drama, if anyone with any sense were on watch.  Clearly the handlers were asleep, afraid, or clueless.

I was wrong including you,I apologize but those others that keep complaining about how its not Judas Priest without K.K. ect...well if they are so passionate about K.K.'s retirement and K.K. and Priest in general then where were they before he retired?  If they are new fans then while its reasonable to worship K.K. you'd think they would be looking forwards to Richie Faulkner.  Now that the problem is settled K.K. can golf into retirement and Judas Priest can focus on what they are supposed to focus on "real british steel heavy metal traditional style.

O.D. RUBY, J.P. DUSTER, J.R. POSER... Just because !

Don't be fooled by imitations... there is only one KK Downing!

The time to act is now. No need to brag about the past. You're only as good as your last post. 

Velvet_Liselle can do as she feels... and feels what she wants!
