A short while ago, we reported that legendary metal band Judas Priest received a major recognition from the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The band received the Musical Excellence Award.

In a video filmed for the video service Cameo, Tim “Ripper” Owens, who sang with the band from 1996-2003, commented to a fan how he hoped the recognition would lead to K.K. Downing being brought back into the band. Downing played with the band from its inception until 2011.

“I know you’re a Priest fan. Hopefully you’ll see K.K. and myself out there doing it. I mean, who knows? Maybe the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame thing will get K.K. back in Judas Priest. Who really knows what’s going on? Which would be fantastic, wouldn’t it? But I’d like to see KK’s Priest out there touring.”

Downing spoke a while ago about if he could get up on stage with his former bandmates to accept the award.
