Gary Holt Reveals His Most Important Contribution To Slayer (Top Story)

On Thursday Gary Holt Reveals His Most Important Contribution To Slayer was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Gary Holt believes he's been a unifying force in Slayer - and it's one of the most important things he's brought to the band. The Exodus guitarist has been working with Kerry King and Tom Araya since the late Jeff Hanneman stepped back in 2011, and appears on the thrash icons' latest album Repentless, alongside drummer Paul Bostaph.

The two remaining original members haven't always had the closest of relationships - with frontman Araya admitting earlier this year that he and King often didn't communicate in the past.

Holt tells The Jasta Show: "People have asked me, 'What do you think is the most important thing you brought to Slayer?' It sounds like a really hippie way to say it - I'd say it's unity.

"I'm really close to everybody in the band. I maybe have been a bridge in keeping everybody smiling. I'm always in a good mood. I'm a hard guy to piss off."

He adds: "We have our times when I hang out with Kerry at night. I hang out with Tom and Paul at different times. But everybody's happy - everybody's enjoying it." Read more - here.
