K.K. DOWNING Looks Back On Stealing A JIMI HENDRIX Fuzz Face Pedal On In The Trenches With RYAN ROXIE

On the latest episode of In The Trenches With Ryan Roxie, during the section 'The One That Got Away', former Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing tells Roxie of his piece of gear that went lost. As a huge fan of Jimi Hendrix, when he was very young he spotted a Fuzz Face pedal on the stage, exactly like the one he’d seen Jimi play a few weeks earlier at the Royal Albert Hall, and after the show was over and  the band left the stage he stole it. Sensational turn of events: it didn't last very long as someone stole it from him as well!

Check out the clip below.

In The Trenches With Ryan Roxie is a podcast hosted by Alice Cooper guitarist Ryan Roxie. The show features in-depth conversations with the world's hardest working musicians and entertainers... the ones that grind, the ones that commit, the ones who make their dreams come true... in the trenches.

KK's Priest, the band comprised of renowned former Judas Priest guitarist, K.K. Downing and former vocalist Tim “Ripper” Owens, have released the single “Brothers Of The Road” off their forthcoming Sermons Of The Sinner album. Listen below.
