SLAYER's Kerry King: "When I come out, it's a huge applause. When Phil (Anselmo) comes out, it's like somebody came back from the dead"
As previously reported, Samson, Zoom and Hartke are bringing you the fourth edition of the Metal Masters Clinic. This unique all-star event, will take place on Friday, September 7th at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. The event is sold out!
The most recent event, the Metal Masters Clinic 3, took place on April 12, 2012 at the Key Club in Los Angeles, California, a day after the Revolver Golden Gods Awards. Present at the event were: Philip Anselmo (Down, ex-Pantera), Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), Kerry King and Dave Lombardo (Slayer), plus members of Anthrax, Megadeth and more. Here is what went down at this historic event!
Here is what Kerry King from SLAYER had to say during an interview with Artisan News about having Philip Anselmo (DOWN, ex-PANTERA) being part of Metal Masters IV!
"The reason I still do it to this day is to get Phil involved, because I think the world misses him. He's good at what he does and I'm one of the few guys he looks up to to the point where he'd come out and do it. And I'm not blowing sunshine up my ass; it's just a fact. And everybody wants to see Phil. Everybody loves Phil. When I come out, it's a huge applause. When Phil comes out, it's like somebody came back from the dead; they're not expecting it. And it's cool."
Regarding which songs fans can expect to see performed at "Metal Masters 4", King said, "We're gonna do more SLAYER stuff this time. We've been focusing on PANTERA. So we're gonna do a few… I think Holt signed on this time, so we'll probably do an EXODUS tune and just see what fucking comes of it."
