K.K. talks about leaving Judas

K.K. Downing

First of all, wouldn’t it have been awesome if K.K. Downing waited just a bit to leave Judas Priest and did it tomorrow? Get it?

Well, he didn’t, and yesterday, the internet was speculating on the reasons of his departure, many fans fearing health issues. Fortunately, he seems to be alright, and he addresses some of the reasons he left the band in a written statement:

“There has been an ongoing breakdown in working relationship between myself, elements of the band, and the band’s management for some time.

Therefore I have decided to step down rather than to tour with negative sentiments as I feel that this would be a deception to you, our cherished fans.”

Bummer, right? Well, apparently his replacement looks a bit like him, so that’s something comforting, right? Put him in some leather pants, no one will notice. Kiss got away with it…
