It didn't take 30 seconds or some other such hyperbolic time frame. If you read Halford's statement, he notified them around Christmas time of his departure.

Hill is an original member, Halford is the voice and identity of the band, Tipton and Travis are the best musicians.

Come now. You think Scott Travis is a good drummer? He's like the human drum machine. Dependable and on time, sure. Feel and flexibility, certainly not,

Oh, I'm sorry, does Painkiller demand some nuance I'm not aware of?

I'm not making the point that it is. I'm making the point that he plays fast and beats the hell out of the drums and that's what Judas Fucking Priest music demands. I would probably hate them if Mike Portnoy joined.

Well same here, but there's 1,001 drummers out there who can play fast and beat the hell out of the drums, what makes Scott Travis such a jewel in the crown?

The Painkiller intro is "his." Nothing in Judas Priest's catalogue is uniquely "KK Downing."

So guitar solos are less unique then drum intros?

Or how about his writing credits? KK is credited on every song on Painkiller. Travis? Uh, not one.
