SLAYER guitarist Kerry King and bassist/vocalist Tom Araya answered a few fans'/competition winners' questions in the latest issue of Britain's Kerrang! magazine. An excerpt from the interview follows:
How did you react to Dave Mustaine's [MEGADETH] recent comments that Kerry King is SLAYER's weakest link?
Tom: "Fuck him."
Kerry: "The funny thing is, if you let Mustaine just talk he'll bury himself."
Tom: "And look at what he did to [former MEGADETH bassist] David Ellefson! You've got a guy who's been in your band since the inception of it and then you shit all over him? Fuck that."
Kerry: "I was stunned when he said Ellefson can't keep time. I was like 'What a fucking idiot!' I hear Ellefson's suing Mustaine now and I hope he gets most of it."
Tom: "You've got to consider that this is a guy who fucking shit on his friend. It's like Kerry said, that guy buries himself every time. Every time he opens his mouth he puts his foot in it."
Kerry: "And every time he's said shit about us he's made us look better."
Mustaine legt sich im Moment aber wiklich mit jedem an. REPUTATION BLOWN TO PIECES
