The legendary Exodus and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt posted an emotional photo on his verified social media account to mourn his late friend and iconic co-founder of Exodus, Paul Baloff.

As you might already know, Paul passed away because of suffering a stroke at the age of 41, in 2002. Gary shared a really rare photo from his archive and shared his longing to his old-time buddy.

If Paul Baloff were alive, he would be 60-years-old today, and Gary didn’t forget that special day of him.

Here is what he said:

“Verified Happy birthday Paul, you are always missed.”

Gary Holt’s follower named rhall31 made the most-like comment under the post:

“Was listening to “bonded by blood” last night doing homework. Totally tapped the future of metal! He is missed by all of us.”

Another user, wings_of_drage_88 sent his condolences:

“Listening to ‘Bonded By Blood’ right now. R.I.P. Paul, and Happy Birthday! 🤘🤘”

Here is that golden-worth photo below.
