SLAYER guitarist Kerry King mentioned how much he misses playing with his former band in a short video message congratulating MACHINE HEAD on their 30th anniversary as a band.
“So, I hear congratulations are in order for my friends in MACHINE HEAD,” King says in the clip. “Apparently, it’s 30 years, which is quite an achievement. Not a lot of bands get there. We did, and then we quit too early. Fuck us. Fuck me. I hate fucking not playing.”
Kerry also mentioned how MACHINE HEAD was “the only band” he ever “demanded to open for SLAYER.” The two thrash acts shared the stage for the first time back in 1994 when MACHINE HEAD had just released their “Burn My Eyes” album.
SLAYER played the final show of heir farewell tour in November 2019 at the Forum in Los Angeles.
