KK Downing on Kk Priest’s Songwriting Approach: “If I think it’s good, then it’s fine on the record”


In an October 1 interview with Headbangers News, KK Downing spoke about the differences between his approach to songwriting in THE PRIEST OF KK and the way he collaborated with Rob halford and Glenn tipton in JUDAS PRIEST. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “Now, I prefer – I actually prefer being able, if I think it’s good, then it’s okay on the record. If I think it’s bad, it’s not okay on the record. I’d rather me to ask, not to have the consideration of others.

“I am very proud of everything I have done as a writing team with Glenn and Rob – extremely proud of it – but I like it, if I’m being honest. I prefer it that way, because I just feel like I’m the loyal metal PRIEST“, he explained.” I am one hundred percent faithful to this music. And I don’t care what people say about it. I know the fans, we’re the same. I don’t care what people say. I really feel one with the fans because we’ve had such a great relationship for so long.

“I think it’s important for me, to be able to do it”, Tear down added. “And I’m already off to a good start with the [second KK’S PRIEST] record, and it sounds good – it sounds really good as a continuation of “Sermons of the sinner”. The story continues to THE PRIEST OF KK the way i think it should. And I like it. So I’m really very happy with it. And I’m really happy now. The album will be out today and tomorrow, and we can change our focus to have everything ready for certain gigs – production, setlist assembly, song rehearsal. Because it is go happen – he will to arrive.”
