KK Didn't Quit Judas Priest For Golf

.
(Rock News Desk) Retired Judas Priest guitarist KK Downing has denied he left the band because he wanted to concentrate on running his golf course.

He surprised fans by announcing his departure just as the metal gods revealed their current world tour would be their last. His statement alluded to dissatisfaction with "management and band elements" but he didn't elaborate.

Bassist Ian Hill, now Priest's sole remaining original member, recently suggested Downing wanted to focus on his nine-hole course at his Shropshire home of Astbury Hall. But Downing has rubbished the suggestion."I love Iain as a brother and nothing will ever change that but his take on the situation is inaccurate, and the people from the press has no license to jump in and take what they thought was a cheap scoop out of what Ian thought the situation was," He says. "My golf course is not, and was never, the reason for not doing the tour with Judas Priest." more on this story
