SLAYER's Kerry King Reveals He Was A Math Wiz Growing Up
When you think Slayer guitarist Kerry King, is the first thing jumps out at you "that guy looks like he's good at math?" Well, it's true!
The legendary thrash guitarist revealed in a new interview with Metal Hammer that he was really, really good at math, and school in general… until he started noticing girls.
I was really good at school until I discovered girls, and then it was all over. It’s a good thing I didn’t plan on college or anything because I probably would have failed miserably. I was such a smart kid, but once high school came around and girls were in the picture, the grades went south. I remember in Junior High, I got the math award for the entire school, so marks weren’t a problem, but once you put the tits and the pussy in the equation, school went right out the door.
I didn’t really know what rebelling was. It’s funny, because I was doing math analysis in 12th grade, and the first semester I got an A and in the second semester I got an E. I was thinking, ‘Well, that’s enough of that!’
Can you imagine if Slayer never happened and King went into math analysis as a profession?
Oh, what could've been.
