About K. K. Downing
Born on 27 October 1951 in West Bromwich, Kenneth "K. K." Downing, Jr. is an English semi-retired Grammy Award winning guitarist, songwriter and founding member of the British heavy metal band Judas Priest. He is a mostly self-taught guitarist. In the late 1960s, Downing discovered rock music and the guitar. "He was heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix, after whom he modelled his playing style." Records by popular artists which have influenced Downing as a musician include, "Are You Experienced", "Axis Bold As Love", "Electric Ladyland" by Jimi Hendrix, "A Hard Road" by John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers and "Fresh Cream" by Cream. Downing played on every Judas Priest album from Rocka Rolla to A Touch of Evil: Live. Downing officially left Judas Priest on 20 April 2011, and in 2012, he accepted the offer of a tribute album to the band The Who and performed guitar on the opening track, "Eminence Front", along with musicians John Wetton and Derek Sherinian. Downing was ranked 23 on rock magazine Hit Parader's list of 100 greatest metal guitarists.
