You know what they say about metal bands: they’re hardcore. Tough guys. Playing shows and making friends with the Devil.
Slayer can add “kitten rescuers” to that list.
This week, one of the band’s crew members saw the cute little creature and decided to take it under her wing.
According to Slayer publicist Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald: “[The night of December 3, SLAYER guitarist] Kerry [King] and some of the crew went to dinner at Kerry’s favorite steak house in Indy, St. Elmo’s Steak House. Afterwards, the assistant tour manager, Jess [Cortese] saw a homeless man on the street who offered up this little kitten for a dollar. The kitten apparently was freezing so Jess took it, slept with her in her bunk on the bus and went to the venue with her today, hanging out. One of the runners knew someone who wanted a kitten, so the little guy now has a new home where he or she currently is.”
Aww…such a sweet story. After all, everyone knows metal bands and fans always have a soft centre.
