Slayer's Kerry King Says The Grammys Are Clueless About Metal (Week In Review)


.
On Thursday Slayer's Kerry King Says The Grammys Are Clueless About Metal was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Kerry King says Slayer's Grammy Awards were only good for one thing - showing them to his parents. The band have won two of the coveted awards, both for tracks from 2006 album Christ Illusion. Eyes Of The Insane brought them a gong in 2007 and Final Six secured a second the following year.

King tells Unrated: "No one involved with the Grammys has any idea about metal, let alone hard rock. The first time a Grammy was awarded to a metal band was Jethro Tull. Are you serious? Last year, Tenacious D - they're a f***ing joke band."

He continues: "When we won ours I think it was probably cool for my parents, because they understand what a Grammy is. They don't understand the bullsh*t involved with it, but to be able to come home with that big-ass heavy award and show it to my parents, that was important to me." Read more - here.
