Kerry King shared his thoughts on celebrities and various non-metal people sporting Slayer t-shirts these days, telling B.C. Rich:
“It’s not for me to judge.
“Is it weird? Yes. Is it humbling? Yes. Do I know which ones are real and which ones aren’t? Not a clue.
“It’s becoming a lifestyle that is bigger than Slayer.”
King also discussed the current state of guitar music, saying:
“Seems like today, the [guitar] heroes are further and farther between. I don’t think that should discourage people from playing
“I think people should do more homework and discover the heroes that I had like Ritchie Blackmore, Michael Schenker, Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhodes and my friends and contemporaries like Zakk Wylde, Dimebag and Slash.
“The last 10-15 years isn’t throwing out new guitar heroes because the bands that people like don’t have guitar heroes in them.”
