Ritchie WHO? Die hard Priest fan but I didn't agree with them carrying on with Ripper and I certainly don't agree with a replacement for KK. Only Priest's drummers are replacable, and replacing Travis would be a tough sell also! If this is truely their farewell tour I will go to see them, but will not truely feel closure without KK.

it's gotta be some kind of pr ploy, to make you think he's gone then just before the dates are set they announce he's back and ticket sales go through the roof.

Yeah, there has got to be more to it. Why wouldn't he finish 40 years of rocking one more time. Wish you the best KK, Just play your guitar one more time..www.qpricing.com/s~q-Judas-Priest.aspx

How could he be with the band for 42 years if they formed in 1969? Did they get together in BeforeWombWorld?

@johnnyd: it's basic math 2011 (the current year) - 1969 (the year they formed) = 42 years. And actually, their wikipedia page says they formed in 1968, which would make them on their 43rd year. Rob Halford was born in 1951, which means the band formed when he was 17, not in the womb.

On KK's website it's said: There has been an ongoing breakdown in working relationship between myself, elements of the band, and the band's management for some time."It seems like a kind of understatement, they must have been something serious in their relationships if he decided to quit...It sucks anyway:( My first and last Priest concert, and without KK:( Aleksandra
