(Radio.com) Former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing has detailed his upcoming memoirs, Heavy Duty: Days and Nights in Judas Priest, which is scheduled for release on Sept. 20.

Downing shared the information after news of the book leaked online. "It was with great surprise to me that I saw articles recently relating to my book, as work is still in progress finalising everything," the guitarist posted on Facebook. "The internet-led world we live in doesn't make it easy to keep secrets! However, I was secretly desperate to tell you all about this book, as my life story is something that I am very proud of -- even though I suspect that some of the details will surprise you just as they did me as I lived through them.

"Recollecting my life as I have done in this book has often brought me to close to tears, but has also made me laugh with the fondest memories," Downing added. "It is true that I have made many friends along the way but it is also true that I have made some enemies. But one thing is for sure: the music that has been everything to me has not only been my salvation, but has also brought me closer to the people of so many nations-- and I can honestly say that I consider all of you to be my very dear friends.
