An hour later Gene Hoglan walks through the door.....at that time we recognized his godliness right up there with Lombardo.....this was 1986 or 87? Anyway he watched practice, then jumped behind the kit and we playerd a bunch of Slayer covers from the first 2 albums, it was fucking insane...the guy at times was playing sick double bass with one foot! Gave our drummer a clinic he will never forget..... Gene was and is the coolest ever.
One of the coolest stories I've ever heard. I used to play Leave Scars over and over as a kid. Thanks for sharing.
