Judas Priest, one of the most legendary British Heavy Metal bands of all time, will be embarking on their final ‘Epitaph’ tour without lead guitarist K. K. Downing.
Axe-man Richie Faulkner, who has recently collaborated with Lauren Harris, will replace Downing on the tour, whilst the rest of the line-up is set to remain the same (with Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Ian Hill and Scott Travis).
Downing, a founding member who had been with the band since 1969, did not reveal a reason for departure.
