    This is actually kind of sad. KK lost his royalties for his Priest music when he lost the golf course. Now, he’s having to auction off his instruments? I’m certainly not privy to KK’s financial situation, but from the outside things don’t look too good.

    Kk already sold his music rights, so why not sell his gear? After all, Priest doesn’t want KK back, so somebody else might as well enjoy this gear and put it to use since KK won’t be…..

    Why not? If I could afford it, I’d rather get that stuff than Lars Ulrich’s unintelligible paintings.
