Kerry King and Her Big Mistake When Meeting Tony Iommi: ‘Fucking Idiot’ – Updated

You must have felt that way at some point in your life. That moment when you tremble when you are in front of someone you like. Well, you should know that this doesn’t just happen to us humans. It happens to great rock stars too. This is how it was revealed Kerry King In a recent interview on the TV show Metal Hammer and the “TV War” in Greece (via chat).

There, the Slayer guitarist was asked if he’d ever done that before A negative experience when meeting one of his musical idols. His answer left no one indifferent:

Yes, just once. And I won’t even tell you who, because he doesn’t deserve it. But nine times out of ten…the last time I would say I got over the hump, because I was still a huge fan, That was with Tony Iommi. It was very late in our careers, however It’s fucking Tony. He’s the godfather of all this shit. I think it was like 2006, finally. I had met him before, but I was not able to talk to him. It was Tony Iommi. “I couldn’t do it.”

In 2006 I went to the Great Britain Classic Rock Awards. He was presenting Tony with an award, and I was so nervous. I was out of my element. “I’ve played metal shows, I’ve performed ‘Golden Gods’ a billion times, but at the Classic Rock Awards, I was out of my element.”

Steven is fucking Tyler there, AC/DC is there, Def Leppard is there – people I admired in my history but didn’t know any of them. So I’m shaking. I hit the microphone when I was speaking. I was a fucking idiot. So, I should give Tony his award, and take a picture with him. Then I felt like we were brothers. “I passed Tony, which was great.”

I’ve had a lot of heroes, from Priest to Sabbath and whoever Ritchie Blackmore. But if, Tony was the one. I had to climb this mountain and conquer it“.



His criticism of the Iron Maiden

guitar player The killer, Kerry King, gave his most honest opinion a few days ago about Iron Maiden’s latest album, explaining that their songs have become too long. In an interview with Riffx (via louder voice), the artist talked about “The Book of Souls” (2015) and “Senjutsu” (2021), Maiden’s last two albums, after stating that he had not listened to Maiden’s latest solo album Bruce Dickinsonenglish singer, “Project Mandrake”.

“I haven’t heard of Bruce’s new album, but I have a friend who told me it’s better than Iron Maiden“The king said. “I wouldn’t be surprised. I have nothing against Maiden, but their songs have gotten so long that I don’t even bother listening to them. My attention span isn’t very long.”

Another album you haven’t heard, at least in its entirety, King, is “Invincible shield“, the new album by Judas Priest. Fortunately, he was able to hear some English on the radio. I haven’t listened to the whole new Judas Priest albumbut a handful of songs on satellite radio“He finished.

Some of them, you know, are typical. I heard one that stood up. “The Serpent and the King.” It’s really great; It seems like an evolution of what a priest does. “I loved.” “I haven’t listened to the whole album, but I’ll definitely listen to it. In fact, I’ll be playing with Priest in a couple of weeks.”

The truth is that King, who was one of the founders of Slayer in 1981, has always cited Judas Priest as one of his main influences.
