Kerry King: 'Who Doesn't Like Elton John?
Metal icons Slayer thoroughly discussed their main influences with Fuse, covering a vast array of genres and artists that made a major impact over the years. Apart from naming the obvious picks such as heavy legends Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and others, the guys unveiled a few somewhat unexpected favorites. Drummer Paul Bostaph opted for rap ravers Die Antwoord, singer Tom Araya digs country, while guitarist Kerry King is into Elton John. "Who doesn't like Elton John? [laughs]," King added. Elvis, Paul Simon, Sting's "The Dream of the Blue Turtles" and Boston were also among the band's top unexpected picks. Speaking about Jeff Hanneman, King remembered the late guitarist's fondness of punk, admitting he couldn't get into the whole vibe at first. "I thought it was just garbage music," Kerry said about his early punk perception. "I didn't get it. Once I got it, I was like, 'Oh this is cool too, it's just not the same thing.' It's funny how you just gotta realize something to move on with it and once I realized it, I was OK with it." Check out the clip below for the rest of the Slayer guys' favorites and make sure to share your thoughts in the comments.
