(hennemusic) In a new interview, former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing says he'll never completely share the reasons why he decided to retire from the band prior to their 'farewell' Epitaph world tour.

"It was a set of circumstances that led me to not go out [on tour with Priest] this year," Downing tells Valley reporter Grace Bailey at his home at Astbury Hall in Shropshire, England. "I was kind of geared up for it, but there was a multitude of reasons. It pretty much came down to an unsettlement on my part with working relationships.

"It's like anything else," continues. "If anybody out there is thinking it's hard to live with one woman, they should try to live with four guys and hold it together. [Laughs] It gets to be like that, but obviously, with certain things, I just wasn't completely happy with the way things were, with the way it was, [and I just felt like] it was probably best if I stepped down, and I did." more on this story
