K.K. Downing Gives Approval Of His Judas Priest Replacement

(Classic Rock) Retired Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing says it would be hard to imagine a world without the band he helped form in Birmingham in 1969. Replaced by Richie Faulkner following his retirement in 2011, Downing has maintained a low profile, dividing his time between family, golf and music.

Downing tells VH1's That Metal Show: "Those guys have been pretty busy since I left the band. I'm glad that the Priest machine is still rolling, because it would be hard to imagine a world without Priest. And I think that's good. And I'm glad Richie has taken up the baton and has allowed the band to carry on."

As for Redeemer Of Souls, Downing says he has yet to give it a complete listen. "I can't say I heard the whole thing in its entirety yet, but when I get around to it, I will do that, for sure." Read more here.
