K.K. Downing to rejoin Judas Priest
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
To/From all Old and New school metalheads out there:
Judas priest, rightfully dubbed as "The Metal Gods" are celebrating their astonishing "50 Years As A Band" next year. the amount of influence and impact they have had on Metal music genre, musically, culturally and visually is arguably second to none. They released their 18th studio album "Firepower" in early March this year -2018- to fans and critics admiration alike... Sadly it was publicly announced shortly after that Glenn Tipton the longtime pivotal band member has been battling the Parkin's disease for quite sometime now, and as a result, while still a member, he has stepped down from the band's live performances duties. The band respected his decision and appointed their new album co-producer Andy Sneap to fill in the second guitar slot for the -now ongoing- Firepower album world tour. However with all due respects to Mr. Sneap and his musical skills and talents, regardless of the reasons leading to such a decision, we the longtime and diehard Priest fans don't feel entirely psyched and excited about this decision. The vasr majority of the fans and several Metal music renowned experts -such as Mr. Eddie Trunk- see the current situation, as the perfect time and opportunity to invite and welcome back the original member, the great K.K. Downing -who left Judas Priest back in 2011- to rejoin the band and make the Priest -in fans' eyes- WHOLE again.
We humbly ask and implore that dear Rob, Glenn, Ian and the whole gang, leave the personal differences, possible grudges or acrimonies in the past, bury the hatchet with K.K. and, while keeping the super-talented and charismatic Richie Faulkner in the fold, ASK K.K. DOWNING TO REJOIN and make Judas Priest a sextet. Bring back the original "Priest sound" to both live and studio performances again. please do not be offended by these remarks as they might seem to be dictating you legends-of-musicians what's best for you. Instead please try to see it from a loyal and enthusiastic fan's perspective. We know for a fact the K.K. Downing is already welcoming this idea and in fact he's been rather surprised with how the circumstances have transcended towards a different direction at this point. Please make the same choice as Iron Maiden made back in 2000, or GNR made back in 2016. You can certainly acknowledge how things turned out great for those folks as well, both historically and financially. Please let the Priest be as complete and as glorious as it can be by the time the band's 50th anniversary approaches.
In the end we want you to know that we love and respect you all unconditionally, no matter what your reaction or decision towards this petition might be. Please consider our humble request and make us all happy and even more grateful.
Long Live The Metal Gods
