KK Downing Would Reunite With Judas Priest For Greatest Metal Tour

(Classic Rock) KK Downing says he'd like to return to Judas Priest - but only if they were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, or went on a "greatest" metal tour with Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath.

The guitarist, who was replaced by Richie Faulkner when he left Judas Priest in 2011 after 41 years with the band, previously said it was unlikely a reunion would ever happen.

But he says he'd like to reunite with his former bandmates - but only under certain circumstances. He tells Blastecho: "Obviously they have Richie there. Maiden has done the three-guitar player thing, but I don't think there's room for an extra guitar player in Priest. Priest has always been a two-guitar band so I can't see that working. We'll have to see what happens next."

"The tour would be something I would have to be part of - only because I'd like to see the greatest heavy metal tour happen, because it's never happened. And it's never gonna happen. Unfortunately, that chapter of history won't be there forever, which is kind of sad." Read more here.
