JUDAS PRIEST: Smelling for Vengeance?
Ex-guitarist K.K. Downing is looking to expands his business empire into scents. Really.
Ex-Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing has been making a name for himself in the golf course and real estate world since he left the band, but his new business flat-out smells.
Downing is launching a line of fragrances — one for men called “Metal for Men,” and one for women called “Metal Pour Femme.” Downing will first start selling them next month through the U.K. hard rock radio station Planet Rock, with plans to take them international soon.
He tells Digital Journal, “That’s something else I’ve thought of in my sleep. Don’t ask me why! You see people from the pop world do a fragrance and stuff like that, but nobody’s actually catering for rock and metal fans, so I thought I’d solve the headache of what to buy for Christmas type-of-thing.”
