Yes I do have knowledge that Nostradamus was indeed K.K.'s idea ect...do you really think I fucking meant Rob,Glenn,Ian and Scott were not a part of it at all? Get real "Auntie". For your information the album "was" K.K.'s idea,motivations and arrangements,that doesn't mean Rob,Glenn,Ian and Scott were not a part of it.
Let me clear it up for you since you seem to have a hard time understanding things in general so let me see if I can strip my complicated post down into something Auntie B can even understand...The album has been a long time idea of all of thiers,but Nostradamus was K.K.'s "baby" and yes "THE MAJORITY" of it was his ideas,fruitations and arrangements. Everybody else assumed Rob and Glenn were a part of it but you,so I hope somehow you can possibly understand it,if not you can check back into kindergarden. How do i know this? I'm surely not going to tell you because you irritate me #1 and # 2......you still irritate me.
My point was you specifically mentioned that you had knowledge that the album was all KK's idea. That he was the only one pushing it. When I watch the recent LA interview footage they reporter put a specific question to the band about them having said they would tour the album, make a production of it. Rob's response was what you read below. In addition, in the taped interview, he goes on to say they were not done with that idea and want to still do something with it. But it would take a lot of coordination. Without KK in the band now I don't know where the notion comes that the album and subsequent tour idea was all KK's.
I get the part about them not wanting Nostra to be their last album. I never thought it would be. Nor do I think I ever wrote that it should be.

I'm trying not to beet a dead horse. But I think the following provides more clarity / discussion with regard to the concept album "Nostradamus" (exerpt from the Blabbermouth interview):
On the musical and lyrical direction of JUDAS PRIEST's new material:
Tipton: "It's quite a mixed bag. Really, there's more sentiment on this album. In a way, I suppose, it's also our farewell album, although it might not be our last one. There are some anthems on there, which pay tribute to our fans; it's our fans of saying thank you and the lyrics relate to that, it's saying thank you to the fans for all the years."
Halford: "I think what really is important is that we still have this desire, this passion — it doesn't diminish in nearly 40 years; we still have this tremendous love for what we do in heavymetal music and the fans that have supported us are a constant inspiration. And I think we all agree that as much as we were very happy with the way [the JUDAS PRIEST concept album] 'Nostradamus' came out — that was a great moment for us, because we had been waiting forever to make this concept album — that's not the end with 'Nostradamus'. We have other ideas that we wanna explore later. But wanted to make, at least, as Glenn said, one more great metal album that really has all the great traditions and attributes of PRIEST in the music, and we think we've got that down, pretty much."
