Judas Priest Tried Everything To Keep KK Downing

(Rock News Desk) Judas Priest tried everything to persuade guitarist KK Downing not to quit the band but he just didn't want to be there any more, says bassist Ian Hill.

Downing announced his retirement last month, just as the band were about to start rehearsing for what's been called their last-ever world tour. He's been replaced by Lauren Harris axeman Richie Faulkner.

And Hill, now the last remaining founding member of the 43-year-old outfit, says fans have nothing to worry about. He tells Metal Hammer Germany: "If you're concerned we'll no longer sound like Priest you can put your minds at rest. Richie is a fabulous guitarist and the perfect replacement for KK. You'll miss nothing from the show and the sound." more on this story
