K.K. Downing says that his former bandmates in Judas Priest have not approached him about being part of the band's 50th anniversary plans next year.

The metal legends have revealed that they plan to celebrate the milestone with a world tour and have already announced an appearance at next year's Wacken Open Air festival in Germany as part of their plans.

Downing was asked by Rock Of Nations With Dave Kinchen if he has been approached by his former bandmates to take part and he responded, "No, [I've heard] absolutely nothing at all. I think it's not gonna happen. I really don't think so, because those guys, they've got their lawyers sending me letters, so I'm dealing with that.

Nothing that I've done, it's just a business arrangement, a contractual thing. I think I've said that they want me out of the way, every speck of me. It's a complicated issue, really. As I said, it wasn't my choice, not my doing, and I asked the guys not to go that route, 'Let's sit down and talk about it,' but they said no. And that's it, really.

"So I assume that the phone's not gonna ring. So I will be, just as I said before, in a previous statement... I can't spend the rest of my life expecting that things will happen when chances are that they won't."
