In a new interview with Ultimate classic rock the former KK founding member and guitarist has now confirmed that he will be performing with Judas Priest at the band’s upcoming induction ceremony into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
“I think we probably have eight or nine minutes. I won’t even be able to break a sweat but the most important thing is to portray the attitude and hopefully the legend of what Judas Priest is and has become and what it means to all who have made it the very long trip for decades of the group. And I hope it will remind people and bring back fond memories of heavy metal car parks around the world.” – KK Downing
