On January 23, 2018, Slayer announced that it would wrap up its 37 years together with one last tour around the globe. Before the band begins that final sojourn on May 10, Tom Araya, Kerry King, Paul Bostaph and Gary Holt sat down and talked about all things Slayer. Here is Episode 1.
In this episode, Tom Araya and Kerry King talk about Slayer“™s earliest shows, especially the band“™s very first show as Slayer: how nervous they were, the home-made flash pots that just didn“™t quite work the way they had intended, and more. The clip contains not only vintage live footage of the band, but the band-made flyers that promoted some of their first shows. In these early days, Slayer toured the country in Araya’s Camero and a U-Haul trailer, a far cry from the way they tour today.
