| Nostradamus tour as a full album,would have cost a fortune, orchestra in every town you play in or only play select cities, the album wasn't well received,so KK had his chance to plan some direction and it didn't go over well. I believe he is sad he left and regretting his decision to leave, however without the influx of the different perspective and energy of Richie I don't know if they would have made another album,let alone 2 + world tours, I think his business was his priority and KK left to devote more time to it.i think like 2003, they will one day meet for a cup of tea and talk and maybe, just maybe KK comes back for the next album, but they are running out of time - Acolyte |

|Well the thing is K.K. says he regrets losing control of the band's decision making. Eddie Trunk interview audio has K.K. speaking about this and he says Glenn was too controlling with the band's decision making etc... and K.K. goes right into the NOSTRADAMOUS era and says how HE WANTED to play the album in it's entirety and wanted to PUSH the album to it's fullest commercial potential. |
Well let me just say that sure that may be true but can you imagine if K.K. ended up controlling the band over Glenn? There would be no Redeemer Of Souls,no Firepower,no Ritchie.... just an extended tour,live album after Nostradamous. The next studio album would of been a watered down JP album id imagine with K.K. at that time if there even would of been one.
Could it be that Glenn,Rob and Ian didn't SHARE the enthusiasm to promote Nostradamous in it's entirety so Glenn went behind closed doors to Jayne and said NO WAY on Nostradamous tour and this is why the 30th anniversary of British Steel came about to promote IT INSTEAD?
I believe it was. Yes Glenn,Rob love Nostradamous but at the same time realized that the fans were craving Judas Priest style heavy metal. Remember there were musical differences between K.K. and the band. Rob mentioned afterwards that "The band has much more to say" and how Ian mentioned they wanted to continue on with traditional heavy metal albums "like Angel Of Retribution" etc...
With all the things said from K.K. and how the band is on top of thier game ever since Ritchie Faulkner joined the band I can't fathom HOW there will ever be a scenario where K.K. joins the band unless it's a one song ordeal at a possible Rock And Roll Hall of fame had they be inducted but that's it.
I think K.K. is bitter because of how successful Firepower turned out to be and how much attention Judas Priest are getting with this.

|In all the times I had seen JP play live since my first concert in 2008, I have NEVER seen Glenn put on a sub-par performance, or play so badly that it could be attributed to drinking one too many beers. If he WAS drunk, then he hid it pretty damn well. That or he has the world's strongest liver. I dunno. It's just ridiculous how much Blabbermouth is taking out the dirty laundry that's in KK's book for the whole world to see. I'll bet even KK himself is getting sick and tired of it.|

|@JD, I am hoping that it is shock factor to sell books, on the other point, the only one I have ever seen miss a beat was Travis in 2015 and the guys made fun of him and Travis blamed it on all the pot smoke in the venue, I told you guys about this here in 2015 after I seen them, I have never seen a trip,stumble bumble or anything, no sloppy guitar work ever, there have been issues with their rigs or sound sure, but never would I have said, hey Glenn reallly screwed the pooch on that solo because he is smashed -Acolyte |

|Ok one of the things K.K. Downing keeps complaining about in different articles lately,sure Blabbermouth.net or others will take something he said and post it looking like K.K. keeps doing daily interviews when he may of only done a couple in one day and that was it yet again,it looks like he is posting stuff every other day but HE did say those things.|
Now a question for guido,acolyte and Vail due to the fact us 4 seem to be posting consistantly:
You guys have SEEN the band perform live MULTIPLE times and Guido you have multiple audio bootlegs from all over 70s,80s,90,2000s,2010s.... from every decade. Has Glenn Tipton ever sounded "off".... out of rhythm perhaps or sloppy as if he's had too many beers??
K.K. says again that Glenn's drinking was slowing down the band and made K.K. "fucking nervous" to the point that he didn't know if the gig they were playing they were gonna be "ok" or not and how the other guys in the band FELT THE SAME WAY and that he tried talking to Glenn about his "drinking habits" but THAT got him nowhere. All this Glenn's drinking ....and K.K. even said "not that the fans would of noticed but I'm a perfectionist and want everything perfect.
I believe K.K. YES why would he make up something like this ok. But to WHAT extent? If it was that big of an issue don't you think ROB and Ian would of SAID something to the point of taking action?
In other words I think I'm saying K.K. may be exaggerating this beyond it's validity.
I really do. What do you guy's think?

|Personally, I hope that Glenn is taking the time to WRITE while not having the tour to worry about! Wishful thinking, I know but No Surrender! :)|

|Well.... these guy's are like brothers that's for sure,family definitely so they can say stuff about each other and then water under the bridge. Who knows .... |
K.K. if your reading this by some fluke chance then text Rob or Glenn and just say if you need me I'm here for you guys no questions asked,if not love you guys,let's have a beer when you have time👍
Rob,Glenn, if your reading this by some fluke chance then text K.K. and have a beer with him ,reminisce old times and see where it goes.
All us fans have strongly accepted Ritchie as a legit Judas Priest member and love Andy stepping in too and also at the same time think about how cool it would be to have Rob,Glenn and Ian getting along with K.K. and him playing with Ritchie with Glenn doing encores when possible.
Dreaming about that "what if chemistry" but regardless of what has or hasn't been said who cares right,the point is that it would be cool if everyone got along again and K.K. came back home.
I think K.K. and Ritchie could sound great together definitely with Glenn and his input ideas.
K.K. .... I still love the guys character in the band,had pictures cut out of magazines of Rob,Glenn ,K.K. and Ian all over my bedroom walls when I was a teen (never had Dave Holland's though,never fit in )
So he is still along with Glenn my guitar hero. Ritchie is too,my 3rd guitar hero.
But let's hope by a MIRICLE that somehow Glenn,Rob and Ian talk to K.K. out of friendship to get him back to Judas Priest.
|[Head banger] Saturday, September 22, 2018 9:50:27 PM|| |
| @JD, I see the same people asking or claiming KK is coming back to the band, but the overwhelming majority seem to be quite happy that the band is continuing,they put out a great album,so I think the show will go on Andy is getting more comfortable on stage and Rob is belting it out AND the show is ending with the Priest will be back! Which is great news considering glenns health, I think like you do, he will play in the studio, but not tour,maybe do shows where he doesn't have to travel at all? But that puts Rob in the 70-73 range with finishing this tour, new album and tour so fingers crossed |
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Friday, September 21, 2018 2:15:30 AM|| |
|Dude, I know right? He even said fans want to hear him play Sinner because he's the originator and how he can play it better than Ritchie etc... how Glenn is too hard to get along with and how he had beers inbetween songs which was a LOW BLOW by K.K.
And how he reads fans comments that say "No K.K.,NO Priest" which out of millions of comments there aren't that many complaining about Firepower now are there K.K.?
Idk but just a guess but I think the band may still be PISSED OFF at him a tad from when he retired right after the Epitaph tour was booked and started to go on sale... left Rob,Glenn Ian and Scott without a second needed guitar player.
Notice K.K. wasn't around,or his comments like this during the Redeemer Of Souls album? Why? Because half the fans were complaining about the production and the mix etc...(although I thought Glenn did a good job)and the album didn't chart nowhere near the top 200 charts .....made him feel like they can't succeed without him.
Now 2018 Firepower comes out with Tom Allom,Andy Sneap with a kick ass production and Rob,Glenn,Ritchie,Ian and Scott ontop of thier game and the songs all of them outstanding,fans an OVERWHELMING amount of fans LOVE IT and it charts #5 the highest charting album ever by Judas Priest.
Plus the tour with Glenn getting so much attention fighting his Parkinson's... I don' think K.K. can handle it,and totally went totally mad?
Idk but after all his comments like this it's highly doubtful that Glenn will let him back in the band. Doesn' take a rocket scientist to figure it out but apparently K.K. has Alzheimer's?

|[J.D. DIAMOND] Tuesday, September 18, 2018 1:52:50 PM|| |
|Another comment again today Blabbermouth.net K.K. says he's always found Glenn Tipton difficult to work with blah blah blah blah.... Jesus K.K. I really wish he would just shut the fuck up already his damn it's annoying at this point. |
He calls Ritchie his clone basically calls Glenn a drunk and by the way K.K. I've never seen a less than stellar performance from Glenn live or on audio live recordings.
It's like he's bashing everything he can think of to sell his book. I sure as HE'LL do NOT want him in the band after all this horse shit he's said. I think it's disrespectful of the current members flying the flag of the band's legacy,so what if Ian said some shit get over it.
If he truly wanted back in the band why would he be saying so much garbage just to promote a book?
|[guidogodoy] Tuesday, September 18, 2018 12:56:07 AM|| |
|Agree with BOTH your comments here.|
On a similar note, can't wait to get my autographed KK book!!
