Tom Araya: 'Slayer Music Will Live Forever'
Slayer singer/bassist Tom Araya once again expressed uncertainty regarding the band's future, but pointed out that regardless of what it might hold, Slayer music will live forever. Chatting with Houston Press, Araya was asked to comment on the idea of Slayer without late Jeff Hanneman. "That's something that me and Kerry [King] have to sit down and communicate our thoughts about," he explained. "I have my feelings and my thoughts, and I need to share them with Kerry. That's what's going to happen on this trip. We need to sit down and figure out what we want to do and how to move forward." Asked directly on whether Slayer could be killed off, Tom pointed out that the band's music isn't something that can easily disappear. "I don't know, dude!" the singer said laughing. "I don't know. I don't think Slayer will ever end because our music is going to live forever. Our music will always be accessible to anybody that wants to hear it. When you talk about it like that, I think we'll be around for a really long time." Finally, Araya gave credit where credit is due, revealing the reason for constantly venturing forth for the past three decades. "The fans, man," he said, once again laughing. "That's the best part of what I do, is when I'm out there playing, looking down and seeing all these bright, shining faces. Believe it or not, it's the bright, shining, smiling faces that make it all worthwhile." As far as the group's new material and Hanneman's posthumous tunes go, the bassist commented: "There is definitely music there. Whether we get permission to use it or not is another story! But there is stuff there, and I plan to go through it and listen to it and see what he had, what gems are in there. There is talk of an album. We'll see."
