Gemma Tarlach of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel talked with guitarist and Judas Priest co-founder K.K. Downing and got their thoughts on the movie that most say is based primarily on their group, ‘Rock Star.’ Downing said, “We saw it just a few days ago. We were flying to L.A., and it happened to be the movie on the plane. As tired as we were, we figured we may as well watch it, since it was free and people who’d seen it told us don’t bother paying for it. It, well, how can I say this?… It was not as entertaining as we thought it could be, though there was a lot of good music in it… Overall, some of the content was a bit Spinal Tap, if you know what I mean.”
