KK Downing clarifies his latest comments about Judas not inviting him back

KK Downing talked about the statement he released a few days ago saying he was “shocked and stunned” for not being invited back in the band after Glenn Tipton’s retirement announcement. Rob Halford also responded the statement (read here).


Now, Downing has talked about it again, read what he said:

“Just to clarify that my complimenting [about] Andy Sneap was no more than I would have said about any other guitar-playing producers that have also contributed much more than expected to our past albums.

“Great talent such as Chris Tsangarides (R.I.P) and Roy Z both not only produced – but also contributed song ideas, riffs and licks, lyric ideas etc. Consequently, albums like ‘Painkiller’ and ‘Angel of Retribution’ would not have been the same without them.

“Even George Martin, I believe, provided much more for The Beatles than just the role of a normal producer. An extra musician in the studio, like the aforementioned talented producers, really does bring a great benefit. -K.K.”
