It's fun to take a trip. Put acid in your veins.

As long as we're sharing Slayer stories...

My first (and only) time seeing the complete Slayer was at my second concert ever (Mayhem Fest 2009) at the age of 13. I was going to go see Marilyn Manson with one of my sisters (she didn't live with me - long story), but she got grounded, so my mom took me since she wanted to see what kind of music I was into. Long story short, Slayer annihilated and changed my life, Manson sucked and I felt ripped off, and on the drive home, my mom told me that she thought Manson was a complete joke and that she felt more concerned about Slayer than anyone else in hindsight. I still remember exactly what she said after almost four years:

"You can go to these by yourself from now on. I don't want to be involved."



RIP Jeff. Thanks for helping change so many lives.
