(Rock News Desk) New Judas Priest guitarist Richie Faulkner says his mission in the band is to make sure they never play a final gig.
Faulkner, formerly a member of Lauren Harris' band, was revealed as KK Downing's replacement after the veteran axeman shocked fans by announcing his retirement. But the 31-year-old wasn't Priest's first choice, says last remaining founding member Ian Hill.
The bassist tells KaaosTV: "We found Richie through a mutual friend. We'd asked him if they'd like to join, but his schedule wouldn't allow it. He suggested Richie; and when we heard him play we knew we had our man." more on this story
