Newsbites: Downing to tour with Tate?
Queensryche singer Geoff Tate has suggested retired Judas Priest guitarist KK Downing, who guested on recent album Frequency Unknown, could be joining his band for a brief stint later this year. Tate says: “I like working with different people, and I don’t ever want to be in a band again – a band that sticks together through thick and thin and all that. I want to constantly be changing it up to make it interesting and different. I want to play with as many great players as I possibly can – because I can. I can call up KK Downing and say, ‘Ken, you’ve got time, two weeks in November, to play a short tour?’ I can do that; and why not?” [Metal Kaoz]
