Wrist injury is painful. I experienced it when I played volley ball for 6 years in young days. If it's painful to play the guitars, it must certainly be painful for KK when he plays golf. Since he clearly stated that he's healthy, he's healthy enough to play golf. If the tour schedule wasn't as tight as it's always been, he could have joined the tour and then retired gracefully.  I respect KK for his contribution to the history of music, I just can't agree with only one thing, the way he retired.

"Believe it, or believe it not!":     The latest comments from the band - Metal Hammer, July 2011:

(on KK's announcement)

IAN - "Disagreements between members of the band? That never happened before with us - ha! To Be honest, when you're in a band as long as we've been this sort of thing always happens. In the past, though, we've always got over such issues."

ROB - "We had no clue beforehand that KK felt this way. I recall exactly how I felt when he broke the news. It was as if the floor had opened & swallowed me. My mind was going off like a box of fireworks."

"We'd all agreed this was the way it should be (the last tour). But (it was) his voice that was loudest. I wouldn't say he was behind the plan, but he seemed keener than the rest of us."

GLENN - "I think part of the problem was that he'd had a few injury problems, with his wrist in particular. But it was still something that none of us expected."

ROB - "None of us understood why he was doing this. We were all stunned. I remember lying awake that night, wondering what had happened, why things were going so wrong. But I think Glenn, Ian & I all felt that it would blow over, KK would change his mind & we'd get back on track."

IAN - "That's the reason we never announced this in the first place. We all went round to see him, all phoned him & did our best to persuade him to come back."
GLENN - "We wanted to give him as much time as we could. In the end we came close to messing everything up, because we gave him too much time. There was never the slightest indication from KK that he might come back, but we held on to the notion that he must return. It couldn't all end like this."

ROB - "My initial reaction was that it was over for Priest. It surely was the end, as we couldn't go on without KK. But then it dawned on me that this band is a lot bigger than any one member; we had to carry on."

GLENN - "We had a meeting & a choice to make. Either we stopped Judas Priest right now, or we looked for a new guitarist. Thankfully, all of us agreed that we owed it to ourselves & the fans to carry on."

(& on KK returning)

IAN - "He's not coming back. I've talked to him a lot recently & I know he has no interest in doing anything in music again. This won't come up. It's over."

GLENN - "The door will never be shut on him. If KK says he's up for a reunion, then we'll never dismiss it."

ROB - "I would welcome him with open arms. I know it would be difficult for Richie, but... when I returned [in 2003], Ripper graciously handed me the microphone & bowed out."

Mr. J.D. DIAMOND, thanks for clarifying that your comment was made based on an outside source.

Since adding real strings such as violins, was a new challenge for Judas Priest, I'd like to share a link of a blog by Pete Whitfield whose blog was found by
a fellow quorumite in 2008.

Pete writes, "It's not everyday the phone rings and someone says (in a Brummy accent) 'hi pete, it's Glenn Tipton from Judas Priest, could you put some
strings on our new album'.

I hear you dude:)
If they can pull off another great album, then it's just going to confirm what we already know and that is they have amazing talent beyond (in my opinion) most bands. If they dont I wont hold it against them because their legacy over the past 4 decades is pretty astounding. I don't like every album, but there's enough there to put them in my top 5 all time favourite bands and my top metal band. Pretty much listened to them every day for the last 30 odd years and their greatness in song writing/riffing still holds up to the test of time.

Didn't mean to get frustrated with you,its just I'm getting tired of reading posts buttering up K.K. and slagging Rob and Glenn for keeping Judas Priest alive and going,it was K.K.'s desicion to leave the band,he wasn't forced out acording to Rob and glenn and I believe that. 

I do wish K.K. all the best and he will always be my guitar hero ect..but from the sounds of Rob Glenn Ian and Scott,K.K.'s heart isn't into the spirit anymore and thats why I'm glad to see him leave,if his heart was still into metal and Priest and he still left then I would be more bummed out. I think Richie fits into the band very well,no this new album can not top Priest classics like Sad Wings,British Steel or Painkiller but it should be able to rival many other LPs in thier discography,as long as its a kick ass album with at least 8 out of 10 songs that are quality I'll be happy.

JD Diamond. You could prove to be right we'll see. I've already got my tickets for the UK Wolves Show, Should be special as home ground. I'm sure Ritchie will sound great judging from his solo on American Idol 'Breaking the Law'. Still have mixed feelings about it. Would have been great to see them one last time with KK, but there you go. Maybe there might be that Spinal Tap moment where the guitarist is lurking around the stage and gets called on to play:)

Oh jesus h. christ are you fucking kidding me?  Its my opinion that K.K. isn't good for the band anymore,its my opinion that he hasn't been since the end of the Retribution tour and its my opinion that I'm glad to see him get the fuck out of here because I'm sick and tired of waiting for a real normal british heavy metal album,I didn't say I wanted the guy dead? Get a fuckin grip dude,do you want a tissue to wipe your tears?

Thats a "bit harsh"?   No,a bit harsh is the fact that the band hasn't done anything worth a shit for the last 5 years,thats whats harsh. So what if K.K. or the band reads this,you think my measily post can even begin to touch the surface of the kind of critisism they have endured over the last 35 years?  Turn back time to 1986 the Turbo album and tour and my "harsh" opinions are pretty tame.

That's a bit harsh dude, expecially considering what's happening and how KK and the band must be feeling.

I will not say anything further on the subject. I never said you have to belive anything I've said,you belive what you want to and I'll know what I do know. And just how am I being "disrespectful"?  I've said many times I've enjoyed K.K. and how greatful I am to have him deliver us metal over the years....I'm just glad he is gone now,how is that being disrespectful?

  And whats my beef with Nostradamus? I think it "sucks".  Its a product of Rob,Glenn,K.K.,Ian and Scott that is epic,well put together,well recorded and well executed,I just happen not to like the songs themselves......why does my opinion mean that much to you? Who cares if i hate Nostradamus or not,who am I at the end of the day anyways? Nobody that matters.

So if you like Nostradamus then the album "IS" that good.  To me its not.   And this "At least they tried something different" approach I disagree,yeah they tried something different and the consequence is that 4 long years will have passed by,by the time the new album is out next year....thats the problem with Judas Priest experimenting as they are excruciatingly slow at releasing material that if something flops then its years before they redeem themselves these days.

They flopped with 2001 Demolition and they took 4 years to release Angel Of Retribution regardless of the Halford re-joining issue and then they experiment with Nostradmaus and it takes 4 long years to release another album,and this time its probably the band's last LP ever.

JD Diamond. Has this outside source got any connection to KK himself or is it just gossip, You seem to be really down on the guy verging on the disrespectful.
And what's your beef with Nostradamus? Maybe it worked maybe it didn't but at least they tried something different.
