Slayer and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt spoke in the recent interview with Let There Be Talk and revealed did they kicked out the frontman of the band, Paul Baloff, in 1991.
In the conversation, Gary stated that they fired Paul and explained it by saying that he was living in a situation that was dire at the time, and he was such a mess. Also, Gary mentioned that Paul was having problems with recording songs and making new materials for the songs.
“Was Paul fired the first time or did he quit?”
Gary Holt responded:
“He was fired.”
“Why was he fired?”
Gary Holt replied:
“His living situation was pretty dire at the time. He was living in a warehouse, and he was struggling with the new material, getting the vocals down and stuff.
And you look back, once again, you can’t deal with regret, but he was kind of a mess. But when we got back together in the late ’90s, we were in much bigger messes, but we were in bigger messes together.
“I mean, it’s one of those things; we just thought it was a move we had to make to get further along.”
