| @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 |

|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.|

|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 |

|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.

|Still can't remember how to post pics.
Wanted to show the pick I got from Richie and a pic I took

Thinking people could care less anyway.

| Sorry guys, started to post earlier and got rushed. Should have deleted instead of posting but too late for that.|
I thought it was a really good show Tuesday. I liked them better than the first two times that I saw this tour. Thought Andy did better and I thought Rob only missed on Turbo Lover. Everything else he did fantastic especially considering his age. A little more mobile this time but it was night 1 after a rest period so that could change. I thought Richie was great. He seemed to stay a little truer to their sound this time around. Still freestylin the solos but he's so good it works. He works the crowd so good too. Always interacting. I got a pick from him. I would post a pic if I could remember how. Ian is still holding up and doing good. I think It's time Andy gets more solo work. It wasn't like the Priest of old but I would give it a 7 or 8 out of 10. With age and the changes I think that's pretty impressive. To each his own though.
|[Budred] Thursday, August 23, 2018 9:17:53 AM|| |
| Went to the Cinci show. Pretty good. Andy is filling in well. Rob still sounds good. Overall not bad. 8 out 10.|
