Slayer Postpone Tour.

Ah, Slayer, a bastion of old school metal still going strong. Err, maybe not strong: a back injury to bassist Tom Araya had forced the group to postpone their European tour until next march. We always thought Peter ‘so low slung it touches the floor’ Hook was the bassist likely to get back problems, but apparently not. A spokesman explained the situation further: "It is with immense disappointment that Slayer must postpone its UK and European tour. Tom Araya has been under the care of a specialist for a back injury, and while he has already made substantial improvement, he is continuing on with doctor-prescribed treatment." We are slightly bemused by the need to clarify he’s doing doctor prescribed treatment and not that he’s gone for some crazy new age bollocks.
