Former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing is the first member of the band he co-founded in 1968 to peel back the leather and spikes and tell his and their story.
Heavy Duty: Days and Nights in Judas Priest will be published on September 18th by Da Capo Press, which promises "decades of shocking, hilarious, and haunting stories that surround the heavy metal institution."
K.K. retired from the band in 2011. He then made an unsuccessful attempt to turn his English estate into a golf course and hotel.
