Ex-JUDAS PRIEST guitarist K.K. Downing says he is looking forward to putting on a “great performance” when he and his former bandmates reunite at a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony.
Having been eligible for induction since 1999, JUDAS PRIEST was on the ballot for last year’s class of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
The band was was ultimately left out of the inductee list.
This past October, it was announced that JUDAS PRIEST is among the nominees for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame‘s class of 2020. The top vote-getters will be announced in January and inducted May 2, 2020 at a ceremony at Cleveland’s Public Hall.
Speaking to the Rockin’ Metal Revival, Downing said that there is a very good chance that he will perform with his former bandmates again if PRIEST gets the nod.
“Oh, I think absolutely.
“I mean, why wouldn’t you, really? It’s a special thing. We’re all of an age now. These opportunities only come once in a lifetime. And it seemingly takes a lifetime to get into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. I’ve always said, there’s no such thing as a young legend, right? [Laughs] So, while we’re still here, it would be great to receive that accolade and put on a great performance and put that one to bed.”
