Slayer's Kerry King Reveals His Rock Hall Dream

Slayer guitarist Kerry King reveals in a new interview with VH1 that he hopes that he will one day hear his name called out for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Classic Rock reports:

King says: "I went there last year, and I was surprisingly amazed. It was awesome. I thought I'd be there for like 40 minutes. I spent three and a half hours. The stuff in there is amazing. It's way cooler than I ever imagined it would have been. It is really cool."

The visit made the guitarist consider Slayer's place in the institution, given their history as thrash pioneers and Metallica's 2009 induction. He says: "I'm not making a ploy to get in, but it makes me think, 'Man, I hope they call my name one of these days.' I think it took them a long time to get Metallica in there. But Metallica basically opens the door for us, because when you think of metal who do you think of next from that generation?

"Of course there's Sabbath, Priest, and Maiden, without question. But for The Big Four, you think Metallica…We've always been number two on The Big Four shows. So come on, Rock Hall, give us that call. We're ready." Read more here.
