I'm guessing Gary might come back, but I don't know. Either way, I'm pretty happy that Pat's doing it for now.

The second part would be sick!!

I wouldn't wish Pat into Slayer over Jeff, though. Jeff is a founding member, and IMO, has written most of their best songs.

Though Tom's voice got a little rough towards the end.


I would love to see Slayer with Pat, though that probably won't happen. I'm planning on seeing them this summer, but if Jeff isn't back I'd assume Gary would be in his place, considering Slayer and Exodus are touring together.

Why you trying to sell it? Having second thoughts? I won't lie... I'm not as thrilled about this show as I was for Scion Rock fest, Infact I'm not THAT excited for the big four show. All though I AM excited as fuck to see my favorite band of all time, other then that.. the other 3 bands are more like a a nice additional treat for me. I'm looking forward to seeing Metallica, Megadeth is great, never cared for anthrax, but Slayer is my favorite band of all time. They may not be crazy lightning fast anymore like back in 83-86 but they are still slayer and have been slayer for 30 fucking years and that's all that matters....And yes I think its been said many times on this board that they're not that great in concert these days, but it still doesn't change the fact that they're a band that means a lot to me and I'm mainly going to this just to see them. It's always a good time when you get to see your favorite band of all time and get a little ape shit. :hmm:

If you end up going to the big four we should meet up like we did at scion rock fest. :rocker:

I hate to burst the "fantasy sports football lineup: music edition" bubble, but you people who are implying that Pat should replace Jeff full time are batshit insane. I like Pat as much as the next guy, but you guys are taking this way too far. If Jeff, hell if any member stops being a part of Slayer at this point, then the band is finished.

Well it's not like any of us are expecting it to happen, but the band would be 10x better with Pat. The most precise guitarist in metal vs. the sloppiest guitarist in metal. Who would you pick?

Considering his obvious history with the band, Jeff should never be permanently replaced as long as he is able to play, but I personally would love to see them with Pat once, as a huge CC fan and a guy that just wants to hear the SITA solo played correctly.

Wouldn't go that far. Him and KK are fairly sloppy, though rhythmically they are usually fairly spot on. If Jeff play his solos as they were on record, all would be forgiven.

Here's a little copy and paste from the end of the article.

"On when they expect Jeff to rejoin SLAYER on the road:

Lombardo: "I'm hoping he comes back for the 'Big Four' show [with METALLICA, MEGADETH and ANTHRAX] in California that's [scheduled to take place] on the 23rd of April. But, you know... We don't know [yet if that will happen]."

An update on Jeff via interview with Tom-

What's the latest with Jeff Hanneman? Is he going to make it to the show?

From what I'm being told, he wants to do the show, but we don't really know what condition he's in. He's obviously doing well enough to play his guitar, so that says a lot that he's determined to want to play the show. Apparently he's healing well. He has two tender areas on his arm that cause him pain when he plays the guitar, but he's eager to play, he's eager to get back out on the road with us. I know that he's healing well enough to want to play the show. We'll see.

In the meantime, you've been playing with someone else.

Right now we're playing with Pat O'Brien, the guitar player for Cannibal Corpse. Before him we had Gary Holt from Exodus. When Gary Holt was brought up, it made it an easier decision to make. He's a friend, and that to me meant a lot. Then Pat O'Brien came in because Gary had highly recommended him. He said that he could do it and that he was a good guy. Those words mean a lot coming from him. I think Gary is going to come to the show in L.A. and obligated tours that we have, until Jeff feels well enough to come in and play. Gary has committed himself to it.
We'll see how Jeff feels or plays the day of the show. I'm hoping he'll be fine. What he's going through, there's a lot of rehabilitation to his arm. I just want Jeff to get better and stays healthy.
