It looks like former Judas Priest guitarist K.K Downing has another thing coming since his Asbury Hall golf course he opened shortly after he left the group back in 2011 has entered administration (similar to America’s Chapter 11) during the fall of 2017. To avoid breaking the law, he’s instead decided to put the royalty rights of up to 136 Judas Priest songs up for sale. This includes classic tracks such as “Breaking The Law,” “Living After Midnight” and “Painkiller.”
Billboard reported that he invested millions of dollars into his dreams by developing the 18 hole, 71-par golf course in hopes to attract the Open Championship. Sadly, just like most people, his dreams came to an end when it was neither profitable or affordable.
Downing, who was with Judas Priest from the beginning up until 2011, plans to sell his share of the royalty rights, which Billboard stated generate between $340,000 and $400,000 per year.
