  Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing says his departure from the band is not about his health, but about his relationships.  The band announced Downing won’t be part of their final world tour.

Downing has issued a statement saying health-wise, he’s fine, but he adds, “There has been an ongoing breakdown in working relationship between myself, elements of the band, and the band’s management for some time.”

 He says he’d rather step down from the tour than “tour with negative sentiments.” Still, he says fans should still support Judas Priest and the shows are ones not to be missed.
