KK Downing

Rare Electric Guitar

KK Downing is a founding member of the legendary British heavy metal band Judas Priest. The band has had incredible success with several timeless anthems including “Victim of Changes,” “Hell Bent for Leather,” “Breaking the Law” and “Painkiller.” To date Judas Priest have sold in excess of 40 million records worldwide.


KK was born on the 27th of October 1951 in West Bromwich, England. During his teenage years he was mesmerized by the legendary guitar sounds of Jimi Hendrix, John Mayall and Eric Clapton which inspired him to work tirelessly perfecting his style and he soon became one of the leading guitarists in the world.

Downing had two passions in his life, the first was playing his guitar and the second was golf. Whenever the opportunity presented itself, even during his hectic schedule of playing on tour, he always got out onto the golf course. Downing galvanised his passion for golf when, drawing from the inspiration of playing the finest golf courses in the world and channelling his creative energy, he created the stunning championship layout at Astbury Hall, the first KK Downing golf course.

 

Downing’s design method reflects his appreciation of the English countryside and he has succeeded in creating a course which sits beautifully in the rolling hills of Shropshire.
