Bring on # 2. Since 1969 this guy has been the master of the "metal riffs."

On April 20th of this year we heard he was calling it quits. Just weeks after Judas Priest had announced their Epitath Tour, K.K. Downing quit the band due to a breakdown between his bandmates and management.

At number 2 on my Top 5 guitar players it's K.K. Downing. Go to the videos and see why he is my #2.
