British metaller, Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth spoke in an interview with Mammoth Metal TV and explained his thoughts about Slayer’s Farewell Tour.
Here’s the statement (transcriped by Blabbermouth):
“I don’t believe it for an instant. I fell for the Ozzy [Osbourne] ‘touring for the last time’ in ’83 or whatever it was. [Editor’s note: It was actually in 1992.] I think Scorpions have done it; Accept have done it. We’ll see.
I mean, if the money’s right, people come out of retirement. Maybe it’s another way to boost their sales a bit, announcing the last tour. I hope it’s not their last tour. It would be a bit sad if it is. I think the same applies to them as with people like [Glenn] Danzig.
Just think, do I need to be doing [it]? Am I comfortable? They’re probably comfortable enough to be close to retirement. They get paid well for gigs. I think they’ll be alright.”
What do you think about this? Could Slayer be doing this to earn more money?
