Default K.K.ís statement about Glennís retirement:

K.K.ís statement about Glennís retirement:

The news that Glenn has finally been forced to come to terms with his unfortunate condition long term came with deep regret and sadness for me. Equally, this ending of our guitar duo era is also something that I have to come to terms with. The insatiable appetite that myself and Glenn had for creating inspired and unique music for the world to enjoy for many decades, is something that can never be erased. However, everyone who has witnessed the evolution of our beloved music must come to terms with the fact that things will inevitably change, or just simply end.
I have to state with great sadness also that I am shocked and stunned that I wasnít approached to step into my original role as guitarist for Judas Priest. Whether I could have stepped back into the band or not, the potential for this situation arising never entered my head when I departed Ė although I too am officially and legally still a member of Judas Priest.
However, I know now more clearly than ever that I did the right thing by leaving the band when I did Ė as it seems that my time spent in the band, and my value in terms of crafting its huge legacy, was and is unappreciated by more than one member. I sincerely hope, for the fansí sake, that the decision not to approach me was not a financial one.
I know Andy Sneap Ė and he is one of the greatest contributors to rock and metal that you will ever have the privilege to meet. To that end I have no doubt that his contribution to the new Judas Priest album was much more than just as a producer. All thatís left is for you the fans to go out and enjoy the band as it is, in order to complete a part of music history in which every one of you has played such an important role.
K.K.

K.K. wants to refer to and clarify his original statement as he feels parts of it were regretfully misinterpreted-

Hi everyone,
just to clarify that my complimenting Andy Sneap as I did 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.

It would be cool to see KK back in the band.

If KK wants to return to active duty in the band, it would be heartbreaking if there are issues within the band preventing him from doing such.

I personally would love to see KK return to Priest. He is apparently still a legal member of the band and on the "board of directors" for Judas Priest.

I can't believe the comments that I've seen on Blabbermouth, such as "He fooking quit the band!" People treating it like KK is not allowed to return / can never return. If KK's heart wasn't in it at the time / he wanted to retire and focus on other things, that was his prerogative and there was nothing wrong with that, even if the Epitaph tour had been announced.

If KK has a desire to return now, it's much better to have him back with his heart in it, rather than him having stuck around and not having enjoyed it.
