Now that Slayer has announced their farewell tour, it looks like Gary Holt will be forced back into playing in his own band Exodus full time… and he’s pretty fucking bummed about it.
“My time in Slayer has been a fucking dream, man” says Holt. “It was such an honor to play beside these guys and I really learned a lot. I got some sick ass guitar picks made and now I’m just gonna toss them out at Exodus shows like it’s fucking Mardi Gras, brah.” When asked what he’ll miss the most about being in Slayer: “I got to ride in a fucking rad ass bus, I had great food every day, and we played some pretty fucking amazing shows but now that it’s all coming to an end, it’s back to riding in our tour bus with no fucking A/C and Lunchables and store brand soda backstage. I’m pretty fucking bummed.”
Holt also expressed his disappointment in the expectations of his Exodus bandmates upon his return from Slayer. “It’s fucking crazy bruh. I had to learn how to play the guitar all over again. Being in Slayer for so long I could pretty much just fall down on top of my guitar and roll around on it and a solo would just come out. Now I’ve gotta, like, play good again. Man…”
The position that had previously been advertised for subletting is no longer available now that Holt will be playing shithole dives and eating Nilla Wafers backstage with Exodus from here on out.
Exodus just hit the road with Municipal Waste as part of the Mr. Pickles Thrash Extravaganza Tour. If you see him, give him some ham or something since he’s really going to be missing those quality backstage meats.
