| As Acolyte - I miss KK in the band as the band it used to be however I think the band has grown and progressed without him, for the better IMO, everything just seems better now, sound,energy writing etc , great article JD|

|Ian Hill interviewed at Hellfest France June 22nd was asked about his final thoughts on K.K. Downing's March 18' comment about how K.K. said he was "shocked and stunned" he wasn't asked back to the band to step into his original role as guitarist for Judas Priest and how he thought he made the right decision to step down because they did not call him back. A previous interview Ian said: We thought he'd be shocked and stunned "HAD" we called him back... and in this recent interview also posted on Blabbermouth.net Ian had this to say:|
"I didn't know, really, where he was coming from with that comment," Hill said (see video below). "I think he just played a bit of mischief, to be honest. I mean, Ken's place in the band has already been taken; he's sitting right there [referring to current PRIEST guitarist Richie Faulkner, who was also taking part in the press conference, alongside drummer Scott Travis]. It's also two albums down the road since 'Nostradamus', which is the last one he played on, and is he gonna be prepared to play music from the new album, which he probably would not. And on top of that, he's gonna have to learn Glenn's parts too.
So it's all reasons why we didn't [ask him to return]. Apart from that, he's been retired for nearly eight years. He hasn't since set foot on stage as far as I know, so he's hardly at the peak of his game at the moment. So, yeah, I wasn't quite sure where he was coming from with that — I really don't. I think it might have been just [him playing] a bit of mischief." End of subject.
Fuckin A man there is nothing that would be more cool than seeing K.K. and Ritchie AND Glenn all in Priest with "K.K.'s HEART AND SOUL INTO THE BAND "what a fantasy. But the reality is K.K. obviously isn't into this band....
Perhaps if they fired Ritchie,replaced him with K.K. and Keep Andy and play material from Rocka Rolla to Nostradamous. Idk it just seems like a far cry to expect Rob,Glenn,Ian & Scott to fire Ritchie so K.K. could "step back into his original role as guitarist for Judas Priest" as he put it. I couldn't see them performing Firepower live with K.K.'s version guitar solos of Ritchie's?
If that happened and called him back what are they gonna do,scrap playing Firepower tracks? I do love K.K. as he is always on our albums to listen to,but I do NOT miss him in Judas Priest. I just don't. I actually like Ritchie equally as I do K.K.
Redeemer Of Souls and Firepower are 2 of Judas Priest's elite best records and Ritchie seems like he's always been in Judas Priest. Glenn was right....finding Ritchie was a MIRICLE for Judas Priest.

|TRUE! No amount of roundhouse kicks can make a person's face melt off like Rob's vocals can.|

|There is MY thought! You know, I have actually thought about this when donning my own chrome! |
Agreed. I make mine face out. Why? When you close your fist and / or punch someone in the head, the rings are rightside-up! It is only logical. Halford would leave an upside-down skull impression in someone's forehead the way his rings face!

|Ehhhh, dunno about that (good eye, though). I'd want the skulls on the rings to face the same direction as the ones on the bracelets, work together in looking intimidating to whoever stares at them. BUT! That's just me.|

|MINE are Harleys! Nope. I have some of those rings, though. |
I like how the rings face in while the bracelet skulls face out. Staring at one another.

The Glove Store, maybe?
Seriously, though? Really don't know. Could be Harley-Davidson? Ray Brown?

|It is MUCH hotter here than in Rio. Heck, WE are in summer. Not the inverse season as it was across the equator. Had to return through both São Paulo than Chicago. Not exactly a direct route but the cheapest. Mowed my four-foot lawn today in the early morning to beat the heatwave. It is 90 or so here. |
What I was saying before is that both YOU as Acolyte and HB as himself are both in Canada so I could have given all temps in C no matter what! How about this. I set the thermostat in my hotel the last night right on Copacabana beach at 23! :) -Guido...as guido
