In an interview with Sticks For Stones, OVERKILL frontman Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth says that he respects SLAYER‘s decision to call it quits, calling it an “individual choice” that is “their business” and not anyone else’s.
He continued: “Oh, man, I don’t make decisions for other people,” he responded. “People should do what they wanna do. If they’re done, they’re done. They know better than I know. It’s all about individual choice. I mean, they’re cool guys. I just saw Gary [Holt, SLAYER and EXODUS guitarist] out in Los Angeles last weekend [at the NAMM show] — I did a METAL ALLEGIANCE song with him or two — and I never even brought it up, because, again, that’s their business.
So it’s really not something that goes through my mind — ‘How strange is this?’ or ‘How weird is this?’ or ‘Oh, no.’ I don’t think in those terms. I’ve always paid attention to my own porch and my own house as opposed to that of others.”
