Gary Holt Wants To Write With Slayer

(Classic Rock) Exodus guitarist Gary Holt says he's ready to write material from Slayer whenever Kerry King wants him to. Holt has been pulling double duties since the late Jeff Hanneman was sidelined by illness in 2011. And although he's recorded some solos for Slayer's 11th album - out this year - he didn't contribute any songs.

King said in 2013 that asking him to write would be like "throwing somebody to the wolves." Now Holt tells Fuse: "Kerry wrote the whole album. I just play guitar. In the future, if we get to another album and Kerry asks me to contribute, I've got no shortage of riffs."

He describes life on the road with Slayer as "easy," adding: "In Exodus I do most of the heavy lifting. In Slayer, I just show up, have a couple of drinks, play the set then relax." Read more here.
