I agree. That would be the best decision (even a dream). Their styles would complement each other great. KK had said that he had no problem playing with Richie (and playing songs from Redeemer/Firepower albums), iirc. But I think he finally moved on with his new band and sadly some of the birdges were burned over the years.I would like to see KK and Faulkner in the band. Faulkner has been there long enough and recorded two albums with them, he’s one of the guitarists not a hired gun. If KK can’t deal with that, tough. Keep Faulkner.
Man, seeing KK back in the band is something else. I love Andy but it would be great with a Faulkner/Downing lineup.British heavy metal legends JUDAS PRIEST were reunited with guitarist K.K.

Richie has said that anything is possible and I think that the rest of the band isn't really against the idea to have KK back in the band. At least on stage to replace Glen, putting Andy in the studio...Man, seeing KK back in the band is something else. I love Andy but it would be great with a Faulkner/Downing lineup.
Most likely would be a bad move on KK's part. More of a pipe dream of mine to hear some Ripper tunes live.It’s an interesting thought and I wouldn’t mind hearing some Ripper songs, but
- KK has no leverage. He’ll play on their terms or not at all imo.
- The last two albums are way more well known than the two Ripper albums at this point. It’s not a fair comparison.
Awesome performance, and great show with the metal sparks.Last night Judas Priest got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. They were inducted by Alice Cooper. Nov 5, 2022.

Richie is right, but I'm not sure about that. And KK will also want to write songs for sure (not only live shows).Richie has said that anything is possible and I think that the rest of the band isn't really against the idea to have KK back in the band.

You prefer the band on stage with Andy? Both sides have guilt and KK shouldn't have said some things, but Bruce has also said some bad things about Maiden after his departure. Of course, it was much worse with KK (letters and everything), but the attitude towards him was also nasty.I'd prefer things to stay as they are, KK is a bad apple. He'd inevitably start complaining and sulking and that's not what the band needs in its final years. Also he doesn't deserve it because of his behaviour over the last 11 years.
