Can't imagine a spider bite in Australia being much fun, be careful Gary.

None of these comments came so much as close to being funny. Wish Holt was filling in for King instead.

"slayer has tapped exodus guitarist" thats all i needed to know...

would rather have had freidman in on this. Not saying this is bad but there are some better choices out there.

i remember gary holt from pleasures of the flesh, mullet curls, and my 1984 ford escort

the_extremist 2/17/2011 5:53:23 PM

I thought for sure this would have been about how Jeff Hanneman is a fat fcker these days and can't tour because of it.
