Right now, if Slayer booked some dates with Gary Holt in the UK, I'd go see them.

If they wait for Jeff to come back then book some, I probably won't.

I saw them last year anyway.

What's with all the Kerry King bashing? He is Slayer. Wild-ass solos and all. It's not like slayer have ever been a technical band. They've always been a band that could ride off the rails at any minute. Including Lombardo. That's what I love about them.

I just don't think there's any room for sloppy playing.

OK when you're playing brand new material the first few times, or you're a young, inexperienced band. But when you're genre-defining veterans like Slayer who have been doing it for years there's not really any excuse.

I can't comment on whether Kerry has improved in recent years because the show I saw last year was a festival and I wasn't close enough to be able to tell. But I would honestly be more excited about seeing them with, for example, Gary Holt and Jeff Waters than I would with Hanneman and/or Kerry at the moment.

Someone who takes a step or two around the stage would be an immediate improvement!

It'll be interesting to see if any good audio/video footage comes from the aussie dates to see how Gary does with the solos; I have noticed that Jeff has been sloppy/lazy on some of his solos (see Chemical Warfare or Seasons in the Abyss from the Big 4 DVD)

But Jeff is a staple and I hope he recovers

Agreed. I'm definitely looking forward to some youtube stuff

My friend ran into King and he said Jeff is recovering fast, so I'm not sure how long Holt will be the replacement

Good to hear. Slayer is set to hit Europe starting in late March, right? His original prognosis was 1 month for recovery, which would put him back on stage by then. Hopefully the recovery is going as planned.

Man, I sorta wish I could catch one show with Gary Holt, just so I can hear those solos played PERFECTLY like on record, or at least have some proper improvisation on them. I love Jeff, and Slayer, but for gods sake, at least play your own solos the right way!

This, if for the only reason to hear a different take on the solos; I said earlier in the thread that I hope some good quality audio and/or video footage comes from these upcoming shows to see if a) he follows the solos as they were written or b) throw in his own flare into them
