ABOUT KK’S PRIEST:
After years of quietly enjoying life away from the rigours
of the road and intense studio recording, KK
Downing emerged again on stage in August 2019. His former bandmates had been given the Heavy
Metal Hall Of Fame award at the Wacken Open Air festival that summer, and HMHOF board member
Steve Goldby wanted to give the guitarist his award at Bloodstock. From there, the conversation led
to Downing performing a few songs with Ross The Boss. The performance electrified the crowd and
reinvigorated Downing. In November of that year, he put on a show in Wolverhampton, UK with
former Judas Priest singer Tim “Ripper” Owens, former drummer Les Binks, Megadeth bassist David
Ellefson, and Hostile guitarist A.J. Mills. Downing had produced two albums for the latter band.
Spanning Judas Priest’s catalogue, this superb and successful show sent shockwaves throughout the
metal world: K.K. was back and the fans were clearly hungry for more. Rather than simply rely on
his past successes and go on the road performing classic Judas Priest songs, the renowned guitarist
did what he has always done – make new music.
