    I'm sure they can fill in the ranks of some cover band. :p

    There was so much more of it to listen too. Sure there is a million bands releasing shit on Bandcamp and YT today that couldn't have happened back then, but that's not the same. Back then we had album, tour, album, tour, etc, these days too many bands spend too much time naval gazing between albums and tours and that's why we need places like bandcamp to give us variety.

    Stet needs to find a band where his crazy look fits in with the rest of the players.

    For sure. Not to mention those bands all had their own sound. Not cut and paste like today.

    Cut and paste nearly wasn't a thing back in the 80's because we didn't have Word :)

    He's probably a real puppy dog when you get to know him :)

    Holy fuck! I wish I didn't know that existed. That is absolutely insane! I can't believe he finished the fucking show! And that's a whole lot of things that had to line up for him to survive!

    Yeah it's bloody amazing to think what the human body can do sometimes. He's lucky as hell all that played into his hands.

    Indeed. And he's already talking about getting back out there! I'm not gonna lie. It would be cool if they had George Lynch fill in for a show or two.

    They should invite KK back and see what he says, see if he's willing to put the hugely successful band of his on hiatus for a while. :)

    Hahaha, I'd love to know what it sold first week! I'm surprised he hasn't put out a statement about how he should be back in Priest veiled in a statement of sympathy about Faulkner.

    I'm surprised JP haven't ASKED him :)
    Seems he does still have some fans left. From reports I've read it's anything from nothing special to exactly what you'd expect from a guy who's played basically the same stuff for 40+ years. I've read comments about cheesy lyrics, but lets face it he's not the only one with those. People seem to either love Ripper or hate him and everything he does. Many suggest KK can still play but isn't playing better than he was 10 years ago.

    KK himself is talking it up, I saw an interview with him where he claimed he was going to use winter to write more songs, strike while the iron is hot apparently, and then have a new album out but summer 2022 and hit the road hard with two killer albums
