Did you also play any rhythm guitar on any of the songs or did Kerry record them all?

Gary, I have a question for you.

I read in a recent interview with Kerry about you and he said that he didn't want you to contribute to the Slayer records because he felt the Slayer fans weren't ready for that, but kept you interested by contributing leads or solos instead.

Are you OK with that? I'd like to think that you must've had a thousand ideas or riffs for Slayer and for Kerry to say "No, you will not contribute any riffs or even playing any rhythm on the record."

What is your take on that? Some fans on Blabbermouth claimed that Kerry King also didn't want to give you any royalties or money for the album?

Interesting questions, but I doubt Gary would answer them fully, if at all. Slayer is a brand name, a corporate entity, a money making enterprise. The owners of the Slayer brand are Kerry and Tom. I'm sure they will not share the brand with Gary. My guess is Gary will always be a hired gun, paid for doing shows, and that's it. That doesn't mean there isn't anything wrong with being a hired gun and working for someone else. Hell, most of us do. Why complicate things and muddy the waters? That would be stupid for all.

Latest news from Blabbermouth - Kerry wants to make Gary a legit band member.

^^ I just read that a little earlier. Gary does state that having 2 bands and a family on his plate is not the biggest problem in the world but if he is able to become 'legit' in Slayer while also remaining with Exodus it's a question if he can be a top-notch contributor in both bands over a longer period of time.

Let's hope it continues to stay that way. I went to see Exodus on Thursday night and whilst Kragen did an admirable job filling in I'd hate the thought of losing Gary full time to Slayer.

Just read about this. I'm happy that Gary's getting the exposure he deserves, but at the same time I like Exodus 1000000x more than Slayer.

I hope that we can at least get Rick Hunolt to fill in again. Kragen Lum is a great guitarist, but I'd like to see someone with some history in Exodus up on stage when I go to a concert...

I totally agree. Gary deserves the exposure for the decades of hard work and talent he is and I also would take Exodus over the mighty Slayer every time.

After this current tour cycle I'm sure Kragen has cemented his place and will continue to in Exodus folklore. I was impressed how well he played Gary's parts. Of course it would be ultra cool to see Rick back to help out too.

I do agree with the others too. I'm really happy for Gary! I'm glad that he's also getting the exposure that he deserves for all the hard work and dedication he's committed to the heavy metal cause.

That being said, as great as it sounds to be a legitimate band member of Slayer, the only way I can see this happening is if Slayer and Exodus toured together all the time. If that doesn't work, then I hope that Gary stays with his baby over the mighty Exodus and that Kerry can find an excellent guitarist out there to make legitimate for the band.

I won't know if Gary is the perfect fit for Slayer until I hear his solos on Repentless. I think Gary's future in Slayer depends on How well Repentless does.

I won't know if Gary Holt is a perfect fit for Slayer until I know he's writing for them. I would hope he would write a little darker. Lyrically I seriously doubt he would be anything short of an improvement. As far as talent and being a technician I already know they will never do any better. Jeff Hanneman was no virtuoso but he was something of a creative genius.

I'm glad to read they will make him a serious offer someday soon. He deserves it. I really hope the guy makes a shit ton of money. On the down side I don't want an Exodus record to come on 4-6 year cycles because of Slayer.

I think the wheels are well in motion for Gary to be a permanent member of Slayer. If Gary is out of Exodus, Tom would be the only original member of Exodus left, and he probably wanted zet back to keep Exodus active. Bands from the 80's that only have one original member left, fans are like, what the fuck, and most don't last long.

I expect a big announcement from Slayer that Gary is a permanent member and also from Gary that he will be stepping aside/leaving Exodus so that the rest of the band can continue to record, tour and make a living.

This filling in for him, filling in for me, double duty stuff isn't going to work forever.

I highly doubt this will happen. If Gary leaves Exodus, the band will fold. He writes all of the material. Who will pick up that slack? The only other guy who writes is Lee, and he's notorious for taking his time, and there's no way he'll be able to pick up writing for both bands. Exodus is Gary's baby, I find it highly unlikely that he'll leave, and if he does, that will be the end of Exodus.

^^ Why is your country so obsessed with talentless losers :P

It's simple: Exodus touring without Gary is ok, but an Exodus album without Gary is just impossible..

Bruce Jenner won a Gold Medal in the 1976 Olympics. That hardly makes him a talentless loser. How many gold medals have you won?

I think an Exodus album Garyless will be difficult, but not impossible.

But there are loads of Olympic gold medalists that the media doesn't give a shit about, you have to become a complete weirdo first.. I'd say that it's not as extreme here..

Lee's Honor Killings is a brilliant track, but I don't know if he'll be able to write a whole Exodus album which actually sounds like Exodus..
