Tales from the pit
I saw the show in Grand Rapids, MI. I've been a fan since the 80's and have seen SLAYER many times. Except for some technical difficulties (not the fault of the band) it was one of the best shows I've seen. I'm 39 now and was just going to sit back and watch everyone else in the pit dish it out. I couldn't. Once Raining Blood started I had to push my way in, and spent the rest of the night there. It is amazing how adrenalized their music makes me. I did end up with a bloody nose, and a chipped tooth, but it was well worth it!
On a side note I made a shirt that looked like it was stained with blood. Made it easy getting back out of the pit, and through the crowd.
