Gary Holt Won't Quit Exodus To Join Slayer Full Time

(Classic Rock) Gary Holt has stated he'd never join Slayer full-time if it meant he had to quit Exodus. He was hired by the thrash giants after Jeff Hanneman sustained a near-fatal spider bite in 2011, and has been standing in ever since.

And while Holt won't rule out taking the position on a permanent basis, he says it'll only happen if he can stay with the band he's been part of since 1980.

"Not if it meant the end of what I've been doing all my life," He tells Metal Titans. "I've been filling in for just over two years now and I'm booked all year with them. But I'm keeping the work going with Exodus I've been doing a lot of riff-writing on tour.

"In the summer with Slayer I'm taking a little digital recording rig with me, so I can continue to working on stuff in hotel rooms." more on this story
