Gary Holt (Exodus) Still Waiting For COVID-19 Test Results

On March 18, Gary Holt (Exodus, Slayer) revealed that he was exhibiting “all the symptoms” of COVID-19. However, he has since offered a follow-up saying that he still hasn’t got his test results back. Holt said the following:

“Well, if I’m gonna be locked away waiting for test results for COVID 19, there’s no one on earth I’d rather be in quarantine with than my better half @lisaholt777 ! Feeling human again, still no test results yet( hopefully tomorrow!) but I’m not feeling sick anymore. Lost 16 pounds. And not the way I would prefer! But I’ve laughed a ton the last couple of days while binge watching stupid shit with my wife! Her and I are what we call ‘tuned in’, we get the same jokes and laugh at the same shit! Now if I could just get these fucking test results and figure out when I will get to see the kids and grandkids!!”

Paul Bostaph (Slayer) Working On New Project

Paul Bostaph (Slayer) has revealed that he is working on a new project with a “friend” who is “very familiar.” He didn’t provide too many details, but a comment from Jason Bittner (Overkill, etc.) seemed to suggest that Bostaph and two other members of Slayer’s final lineup, Kerry King and Gary Holt (Exodus), are working on something with Phil Anselmo (Pantera, etc.). However, this is just an unconfirmed rumor and Holt previously said that he was planning to focus on Exodus after Slayer’s final tour, so his inclusion seems a bit unlikely.
