Kerry King: Metallica Is 'Sinking Ship'
AZNightBuzz.com has published a few assorted quotes from Slayer guitarist Kerry King ahead of the band's appearance next Wednesday (January 24) at the Tucson Arena:
  • On President Bush: Kerry King: Everyone in the world's laughing at him. I don't really pay too much attention to politics, but I do know that.
  • On politics: I don't understand politics and I like it that way.
  • On super-producer Rick Rubin, who worked with Slayer on several albums in the 1980s and 1990s: I'm surprised he's going to be doing the (next) Metallica record because I don't know how he's going to right that sinking ship.
  • On Dec. 8, the anniversary of the murder of Pantera's Dimebag Darrell: From now on, that's going to be 'Drunk Day' for sure.
  • On the meaning of Christmas: Christmas isn't about religion. Christmas is about presents, if you ask me. I know originally it was supposed to be about the birth of Jesus, but anymore? It's about capitalism and hey, I'm all about getting presents.
