Will Gary Holt Ever Be a Real Member of Slayer?

Kerry King wants to make sure Gary Holt feels like a regular member of the band although there is no official document stating so. "Holt, the longtime guitarist for Exodus, first played with the band back in 2011 when Jeff Hanneman was sidelined due to his recovery from a flesh eating bacteria contracted from a serious spider bite. But what started as a fill-in role became more permanent as Hanneman’s recovery from the bite never allowed him to return to a full-time role." King sees the importance of addressing this issue and making Holt's presence legal, however, he says the band has just had other things on their mind as well.
