Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph was recently interviewed by AndrewHaug.com, Australia’s first-ever 24×7 online rock and metal radio station launched by Andrew Haug.
During the chat, Bostaph was asked about the criticism on Slayer’s tendencies to not stray from their tried-and-true formula, while any attempt at experimentation is dismissed by their longtime fans. Bostaph replied, “An artist doesn’t want to paint the same picture every time. I mean, if you, as somebody who painted, painted a picture of an apple and it was everybody’s favorite picture. They [all tell you], ‘Man, that picture of that apple is my favorite picture.’ So then the artist goes, ‘Aha! I’m just gonna paint that picture of the apple every time.’ Well, I mean, then there you go. You’re looking at the same thing every time.
