Not waiting, but no time to READ yet!

Still, no plots ruined here. Spoil at will.

 @Vail, I would vote for them all, just because no AL no priest IMO, on another note, everyone received their copy of KK's book? 
[Vaillant 3.0] Friday, October 05, 2018 1:12:35 AM 
Yeah, that would be nice. Not sure I'd be interested in seeing Al Atkins, though. Ripper Owens or Les Binks, though? Why not!

 KK finally said something sensible, that all members of the band still living should be involved in the 50th ! Acolyte

OUCH! No comment on KK but Rob? Dye it! That or cut it off. Looks kinda like bad steel wool otherwise.

[Head banger] Wednesday, October 03, 2018 2:00:57 AM don't know if this is fixable but gives you an idea of how some people are thinking about KK
[Head banger] Monday, October 01, 2018 9:35:21 PM 
 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 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?

 I can't wait to read that one as well-Acolyte 
[Vaillant 3.0] Monday, September 24, 2018 5:28:28 PM 
Gee, I wonder if this is a response to something?
