Looks like the end of one of the most famous guitar duos in metal.


After 40 years with Judas Priest, KK Downing has quit heavy metal music legends Judas Priest. The English heavy metal group will complete their farewell tour without their co-founder, replacing him with Richie Faulkner from Lauren Harris' band



Official statement from KK Downing:


"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."
