Heavy Duty: Days And Nights In Judas Priest
KK Downing with Mark Eglington
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.
