Former JUDAS PRIEST guitarist and leader of KK’S PRIEST K.K. Downing has been interviewed by Hit Channel. Below we reproduce some of the highlights.

You were never very close to Glenn Tipton but you were the greatest guitar duo of all time. What was the secret to that chemistry you had together on stage and in the studio?

Glenn and I worked very hard and did many things together. It’s like any relationship, there are always things where you’re going to have differences, but in most relationships there are probably always more things that you have in common. In the case of Glenn and me, we’re both Scorpios, we both like sports, we both loved doing what we did, we love playing guitar, writing songs. So we had a lot of things in common, but we also knew that we had to work together and make it work, otherwise we would have failed. I think that’s what helped build a good and powerful working relationship. And I am very grateful to Glenn for that and I will always respect him a lot, in fact more than the rest of the members of the group, because GlennBesides me, he was the one who worked the most. Glenn He was very dedicated and worked very, very hard.”

How important was the role of Chris Tsangarides (Gary Moore, THIN LIZZY, BLACK SABBATH) in “Painkiller”?

“I believe that Chris It was very important. Chris he was a very talented producer and a wonderful person. He was a great producer and also a good guitarist. He loved guitars and was a great person to work with. He is greatly missed. Chris he achieved a lot in his life and it’s a shame he died so young, otherwise we would still have great albums by Chris.”

You are responsible for the leather image of JUDAS PRIEST, where did you get it from?

“That’s a good question. What happened was that Rob and I used to go to a big theater in Birmingham where at the bottom there was a pile of clothes used in performances. We used to rent some, if you see me playing with LED ZEPPELIN in Oakland or at the Old Gray Whistle Test, I might be wearing some of those rented clothes at the theater. They were very colorful clothes, he looked like a star from the sixteenth century or something. We couldn’t afford to make stage clothes, so we rented stage clothes. Rob and I used to do it. Then I had some black over the knee jockey boots, I rented them but never returned them. At the time I made some equal in white. I also had some black satin pants that I made, a black shirt, and a leather vest that I put some tacks on and little by little it developed. In my head it looked like one of those musketeers from the 16th century, but I didn’t have it in color yet. It was all black, so I added a black satin jacket and a spiked leather choker. It happened slowly.

After a short time I really liked it because I wasn’t happy with the image of the group. Each one was dressed in a different way, with different clothes, I had no strength, so I told Rob to come with me to London to make us some clothes. We went to a store and these two lovely gay leatherwear experts made us a few things and off we went. In the end the rest of the band started to like it and everything came out. I was very happy that it worked.”
