Gary Holt On The Possibility Of A Slayer Reunion In The Future: “To My Knowledge, It’s Done”

Slayer officially wrapped up their career with one final show in Los Angels, CA on November 30, 2019, but many fans are still hoping that the band will return one day. During an interview on Dean Delray’s “Let There Be Talk” podcast, guitarist Gary Holt was asked about a potential reunion and he responded by saying “to [his] knowledge, it’s done.”

Holt said the following:

“To my knowledge, to what I know, it [was the final show]. People say, ‘Oh, maybe they’ll come back in a few years.’ I don’t know. If it does, if it ever happens, it has nothing to do with me. Someone else would call and say, ‘We wanna [do this].’ To my knowledge, it’s done. And I think it should be that way. The band went out fucking on a bang, went out on SLAYER’s terms, and how many people get to say they did that?”

He continued:

“Everybody’s happy doing their own thing. I’m happy as fuck. Not that SLAYER made me unhappy — I was treated like family — but I’m back with my first family [Exodus]. I’m back with not my stepbrothers — I’m back with my real brothers. And that’s where my heart is, and I missed it, and I was missing it more and more all the time.”

Gary Holt Reflects On His Time With Slayer Following Final Show: “Forever Honored To Have Been A Part Of This Band”

Slayer officially played their final show on November 30 and guitarist Gary Holt (also of Exodus) has taken some time to reflect on his role in the band. Holt has been touring with the group since 2011 as a fill-in for original guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who battled necrotizing fasciitis, before passing away in 2013 due to cirrhosis of the liver.

Holt said the following:

“Now that the final show has come and gone, I just want to send a heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported me stepping into this monster called Slayer. Last night was a whirlwind of emotions for all four of us. I want to thank @tomarayaofficial , @paulbostaphofficial and KFK, Kerry Fucking King. I will miss so much more than just sharing a stage with you guys.

I’ll miss the jokes, the penalty shots for our onstage fuck ups, the philosophical discussions, the fart jokes,the millions of laughs, the songs, the bus ride movies and more shots. MASSIVE love to all three of you. All at RSE, Rick Sales, @sassys8n , @ehgon , and @ndrewstuart . Always made me feel like part of the family. Our stellar crew, especially @sai_lhung_ , one of my best friends on this earth. RESPECT!

RIP Aarmand . Mike Latronico, Pat Dickinson, @jraraya419 , John Goss, @norm.costa , Tim Quimby , @lost069 , @off_to_the_moon_studio_ , Anders Aho, @d_villain ,Tim Quimby, Erin O’rourke,Jager bear Paul Dinapoli , @thepig98 , Ashley Groom, Kevin Lehman, Rory, Paul and Keith our pyromaniacs,Josh, @brianlights , Rich Interlande, Jake Fraczek, Jason Lowe for keeping an eye on us.

And to the Slayer fans, thanks for making me feel welcome, it’s been a special and magnificent metal journey. Three epidurals, seven cortisone injections, trigger point injections, all to keep me in raging mode. Worth every second of the pain. Forever honored to have been a part of this band.

But I never wanted this. Jeff should have been there. I just held down the fort for him. And @lisaholt777 , your support meant everything to me. Love you after forever. And all my boys in Exodus, you are my family, and this wayward son is coming home! New Exodus is a world destroyer. See you in Europe in February!”
