Kerry King: En Fordragelig eller ufordragelig fyr?

Kerry King: Gitarist i Slayer og konstant sitatkilde for Blabbermouth.net. KK har fylt sine 52 år på denne kloden til randen med råharry tribaltatoveringer og meninger. Selv gitarene hans har «tribaltæts».

På tide å møle oss igjennom noen quotes som kan gi oss ett bilde av hvordan denne mannen tenker.

«If you’re a gay person I’d rather not be stuck in a lift with you.»

«I’ve never thrown out a TV set out of some hotel’s window, but I have thrown a microwave out of one ‘coz it was cooler.»

«If I’m in a corner, I like my corner. It’s the coolest corner I’ve ever been in.»

«Check bags are fun. I just make sure there won’t be anything illegal in my check bag which is forbidden at a cabin of a plane. Just leaving things like scissors and such out of my carry-on things in order to avoid troubles with some certain airline, y’know.»

«I’m always using a towel around my head. Airports don’t worry about me.»

«Best Buy. I heard recently they are downsizing and I got sad! I remember when Circuit City was around, I never understood why people would shop there. I always thought Best Buy had a better selection and cheaper prices.»

«I am suprised that it took the terrorists this long to target a rock concert. Because they hate rock music. They hate our lifestyle. They hate our freedom and they hate that we enjoy ourselves. And, of course, it sucks. What happened makes everybody think twice about risking their lives to see a band play. But if you stop going to concerts or stop playing at them, you just do what the terrorists want you to do. It is very important to carry on and to do what you do, what you love doing. And, you know, I am not the kind of guy that goes through life worrying all the time. We took airplanes right after 9-11. We played shows right after Dimebag [late PANTERA guitarist] was shot. Sure, things can go wrong. But you might also step out this building here and get run over by a car. Just do what you love doing and stop worrying.»

«I used the dictionary very minimally and I just wrote how I speak. And I speak very hateful manner usually. I constantly did that because I think the fans would get more out of it if they understood exactly what I’m saying – exactly where I’m coming from.»

«I was really jaded for a while back in the late ’90s. I couldn’t understand why Limp Bizkit was big. It affected me – I didn’t want to play music. I thought, ‘If this is the way that music’s going, then fuck this, I hate it.»

«I’m certainly not a political analyst, but I think that Hillary Clinton is the safe, correct choice. Trump is just a sideshow. I’m not even going to apologize to all the Trump followers.» King laughs. «I think the reason he’s so popular is because he’s like the politics version of WWE. He’s sensational like wrestling and that’s why middle America loves him. He’s the biggest liar I’ve ever seen in politics,» he says with a laugh. «I mean, most of them are liars, but he just outright in-your-face lies.»
