Heavy Duty: Days And Nights In Ju­das Priest

KK Down­ing with Mark Egling­ton

Total Guitar - - ALBUMS -

Down­ing’s shock 2011 de­par­ture from the iconic metal band he co-founded over 40 years be­fore is a key sub­ject here. And while some au­to­bi­ogra­phies can be a lit­tle too po­lite as their sub­ject keeps one eye on up­set­ting busi­ness part­ners, the for­mer cler­gy­man is hon­est in his ap­praisals with­out be­ing sala­cious. Fol­low­ing his early awe at see­ing Hen­drix live, and get­ting Priest off the ground, it be­comes ap­par­ent from Down­ing’s per­spec­tive that ten­sions with his gui­tar part­ner Glenn Tip­ton had been sim­mer­ing for some time.
