On Lichter´s Slayer Page - Slayer News I read » From the SlayerHatesUsAll newsletter: "I understand Pantera's decision, but I think we'd be letting our European fans down if we cancelled the tour," said Slayer's bassist/vocalist Tom Araya. "We all have families, and are concerned about the potential dangers. But many kids in Europe have experienced attacks and assaults and terrorism throughout their lives, so I think Slayer should make the effort to go over there and play for them. As a band, we simply refuse to play into the hands of these terrorists, we won't allow them to disrupt our lives any further." Good for you, Tom.
