Exodus leader and Slayer guitarist Gary Holt revealed that he has Coronavirus. He was touring with Testament’s Chuck Billy and Death Angel’s Will Carroll that also tested positive for the disease.
“So I finally received my test results back and positive it was. [My wife] Lisa’s came back negative, and it’s been long enough since my symptoms that I am officially in the clear to do the only things I’m allowed, like buy my own groceries!
“I feel great, made it through the tougher moments, and my health feels 100 percent normal. Thanks to everyone who had wished us well. Now it’s time to start working on some new Exodus riffs while I’m still basically stuck in my house!”
