In a brand new interview with Rolling Stone, Rob Halford has dismissed as “unfortunate” K.K. Downing‘s statement in which the former JUDAS PRIEST guitarist insinuated that producer Andy Sneap was covering Glenn Tipton‘s parts on the band’s new album.
He said: “I thought the timing of K.K.‘s statement was a little bit suspect, quite frankly. Why now? This band is a very private band when it comes to things like this, and it detracts from all the great things JUDAS PRIEST has done and is still doing,” he said. “It was just unfortunate. I personally had to respond to the insinuation that Andy was doing Glenn‘s guitar work. That was just not true. I wanted to get it off my chest.”
