Former JUDAS PRIEST Guitarist Discusses The 'Breakdown' In The Band

Judas Priest Former JUDAS PRIEST guitarist K.K. Downing has issued the following press release:

"Dear friends,

It is with much regret that I will not be with you this summer. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your concerns about my health. Please rest assured that I am O.K.

There has been an ongoing breakdown in working relationship between myself, elements of the band, and the band's management for some time.

Therefore I have decided to step down rather than to tour with negative sentiments as I feel that this would be a deception to you, our cherished fans.

However I would urge you to please support the Priest as I have no doubt that it will be a show not to be missed.

All my love and respect."

Judas Priest announced yesterday that original guitarist K.K. Downing has retired from the band.
