|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?

|Sorry for the auto correct on my phone I guess I should look closer at my posts but ya get the idea of what I'm sayin.|
|[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!!

|Nothing happens in Judas Priest unless Glenn says so. So if Glenn decides to bring back |
K.K. he'll do it,if we never see K.K. we can assure Glenn holds no hard feelings but opted
not to bring him back on board for only reasons Glenn shares with the rest of the band.
|[Head banger] Monday, September 17, 2018 9:14:00 PM|| |
| Agreed JD, seems to be a lot of lashing out, but also not putting out the fire on the bridge he is burning, I hope it all stops, maybe hopefully it is just a PR stunt to sell books (fingers crossed) as I think they are better now, but would love to see him walk out one time 50 th anniversary? and do VOC!!! As Acolyte |
|[J.D. DIAMOND] Monday, September 17, 2018 7:41:06 PM|| |
|K.K. Downing has been in the news yes,all over Blabbermouth.net making comments to |
promote his book I'm sure of. But him saying Glenn had a few beers inbetween songs
... this guy is struggling through Parkinson's disease with the Priest track No Surrender
and K.K.'s kicking him when he's down,telling Ian to "get a grip" etc.... this is sad to see
K.K. so bitter but you know what guys?
Remember the Epitaph your 2011 when tickets were sold shows were booked and then K.K. leaves
them high and dry retires.
So they get Ritchie on a MIRICLE and now the band is supposed to drop what thier doing and deal
with K.K.? He screwed himself with those negative comments this year.
Now there's no way he'll ever be called back. I don't really think K.K. wanted back in the fucking band
I think he "wanted to be asked" and like he even said "he'd of probably have said no".
Let's hope K.K. finds happiness and our Band is fine without him.
