Slayer should just hang up their hats at this point. I'm a long time Slayer fan, but without Dave on drums and Jeff on guitar, it's just not Slayer anymore... and they've had a good long run... enough's enough.

I think Kerry's ego is just getting in the way, but who knows
Yeah, I have to agree with this despite being a huge Slayer fan. They're getting there in age and without both Jeff and now Dave, what's the point in even seeing them after that loss? They had a good career and Reign In Blood will be a metal staple for years to come, why not walk away and leave behind your legacy?

I will say that Gary Holt did a hell of job filling in for Jeff when I saw them at Mayhem last year

Further solidifies that Kerry King is a giant douche.

Most definitely, Gary is an excellent guitar player but he'll never truly replace Jeff.

If Tom's on your side I don't see how a problem can arise. Seems like nobody is on your side. Shit bro, can't trust nobody, even if you've known them for over 3 decades

Wow. That's pretty shifty. Maybe... JUST maybe Kerry is just protecting the interest of slayer as a business. If Dave had a serious problem with the money, he'd quit mid-tour. Wouldn't be the first time that he abruptly quit over money.

Simple. They need money.

Wait, is Jeff out of the band? I thought he was just healing from that surgery or whatever.

Especially if they're only getting 2% each

I don't think Jeff's "out of the band" but he has been recovering for a long while now, and I recently read that they didn't have any idea when he would be back.

That being said, does anyone know who's playing guitar for them on tour... Isn't Gary Holt playing with Exodus on the Metal Alliance tour (not sure if the dates coincide with the Slayer tour or what?)

it sounds like the 90% "expenses" is going into Kerry's bank account. Dave found out about it and now he's gone.
