Everyone else either has day jobs that help pay the bills when they're not on tour (Testament, Heathen etc) or tour constantly so that they can be full-time musicians (Slayer, Exodus etc).
tl;dr Slayer aren't gonna stop touring anytime soon.
Metallica is has enough money to be able to do anything they want.
I mean Slayer could do a farewell tour with a huge world tour and make enough cash more than likely to live nicely.
