Slayer’s King: I’m Still 17

Alan Sculley of Cincinnati CityBeat spoke with guitarist Kerry King about how the perception is musical tastes are supposed to mellow with age. “There’s like an unwritten rule, especially in America, to where you reach a certain age and you can’t like Metal anymore,” King explained. “You’re supposed to grow up. You’re supposed to wear your fu**ing khakis and a shirt with a collar. But you can’t listen to Metal. You’ve got to listen to fu**ing Barry Manilow or whatever the hell it is. I’m still 17. That’s probably why our music kicks so much ass, because we’re still kids. You don’t have to grow up.”
