90911. We got to jump on, like, trampolines, learn flips, learn karate, kung fu, Hong Kong street fighting. – Jaime King

90912. I’ve always been really athletic, which really helped, because when I first started doing the training for Bulletproof Monk, it required so much strength that if I didn’t have a base I don’t really know what I would have done. – Jaime King

90913. I felt like the dark hair added like a toughness to my face also, which was really important. – Jaime King

90918. Peter remained very quiet and shy, but when he spoke it made sense. – Jonathan King

90919. No, my profile has leaped over recent years, so has my life experience, and I look forward to the next 30 years being even more rewarding and satisfying than the previous 60! – Jonathan King

90920. My greatest reward is knowing for certain, as I do with many other acts and artistes, that without Jonathan King being alive and involved, Genesis would not exist, and the guys would have had careers as intended – as accountants and lawyers! – Jonathan King

90921. It’s not fair that the accused is not protected from adverse publicity whilst the accuser is guaranteed anonymity, whatever the verdict. – Jonathan King

90922. I was sad Jon Ronson, who wrote in the Guardian and has made a TV show for Channel 4, took against me. – Jonathan King

90923. It was only supposed to be on WCW compilation; on that wrestling compilation. And for that I thought it was good. And then we threw it on our record as well. – Kerry King

90924. So, there’s like one luxury you take and since we do that, y’know, you’re involved with people in suits; business people all the time. But hey, if I sit down on a bar and they leave, good for me. – Kerry King

90925. Traditionally the show must go on which is a stupid thing to say, but that in a nutshell is what’s going on. We have a new record out; if we won’t tour, the new record dies. It’s reality – it’s what business is nowadays. You just need to tour to sell your albums. – Kerry King

90926. My strangest media moment a photo session they all had dressed up like 50 gangsters. That was pretty cool. We have to get some more of those kind of photos sometimes. – Kerry King

90927. My first figure was a SLAYER eagle. And the dragons and the tribals are all I have got. – Kerry King

90928. It’s hard ‘coz you have got different time zones; you can’t sleep and y’know, it’s boring way for the show to happen, but you do off the stage. Y’know, onstage it’s all better. – Kerry King

90929. It’s good to be playing one and a half hour again. In the States we played like an hour and when you got onstage it felt like all of a sudden you are already done your set. But now, it feels like we are touring again. – Kerry King

90930. It’s a new perspective where I got a role in and they are just spewed out of my mouth. – Kerry King

90931. Of course we are doing this primarily for ourselves, but I know our fans dig most of it, too. – Kerry King

90932. Even though there’s these songs and whoever the hell put it in the internet, if there’s any good riffs in them, we raped the songs and put in the new ones. – Kerry King

90933. This new one was held for a couple months, so I guess it was better, but when we go into thinking our next record tragedy, it traditionally will probably change the distribution again and it will get held up again. – Kerry King

90934. Check bags are fun. I just make sure there won’t be anything illegal in my check bag which is forbidden at a cabin of a plane. Just leaving things like scissors and such out of my carry-on things in order to avoid troubles with some certain airline, y’know. – Kerry King

90935. I just saw Jensen the other day. They are gonna be in the States at the same time when we are doing the tour, Se we’ll see if we are going to see somewhere. – Kerry King

90936. I play loud onstage for my own benefit as I like. But I’m not too fond of the P.A. either. – Kerry King

90937. I think the church and the religion right now have a lot more to be worried about than SLAYER. – Kerry King

90938. I used the dictionary very minimally and I just wrote how I speak. And I speak very hateful manner usually. I constantly did that because I think the fans would get more out of it if they understood exactly what I’m saying – exactly where I’m coming from. – Kerry King

90939. I write when I have to; I write when the song is done and I deal with the idea and I just go with it and I’ll become what that song is all about until I have finished it. And when you do that, it makes the song more visual, it makes it more personal. – Kerry King

90940. I’m always using a towel around my head. Airports don’t worry about me. – Kerry King

90941. If you don’t tour, you cannot expect to sell a huge numbers of your albums either. It was both a business – and an economical decision and we wanted to play anyway. We just wanted to get out for the tour when it was safe enough for us. – Kerry King

90942. When we play “Angel of Death”, it’s actually a 2 and half minutes sing ’til our party starts. That song is pretty much been played traditionally in the end. – Kerry King

90943. Well, to be honest with you, yes there is and there is not. But as I am a fan of this kind of music as well as the rest of the guys naturally are – and being a fan, we kind of get pleased by our music as fans and as being in SLAYER. – Kerry King

90944. We haven’t played that many of them because all our gear was over here waiting for us when we could get here. So we didn’t get to rehearse any of the new stuff, so we have planned to play 3 or 4 new ones. – Kerry King

90945. When we finally got to play that and we had a great show there, well I can tell it was pretty awesome. Y’know, we probably did bigger festivals since then; we probably headlined bigger festivals since then, but I will always remember that. – Kerry King

90946. You kind of have to become a song so to speak and we wanted to make sure that Tom did them with the best abilities he had and captured all that what the song is all about. – Kerry King

90947. When something irritates me, I don’t go home and write; I just don’t do that. – Kerry King

90970. I worked on the United Parcel Service truck, I sold home delivery of milk. But always, in the back of my mind, I wanted to get into radio. – Larry King

90971. I was always telling everyone, I want to be a broadcaster. They’d say, What, are you crazy? What, you’re going to be Arthur Godfrey? – Larry King

90973. People would pay money to work at CNN. – Larry King

90985. The Muslims have, as everyone else says, the right to practice their religion and they have the right to construct a mosque at ground zero if they wish. What I am saying, though, is that they should listen to public opinion, they should listen to the deep wounds and anguish that this is causing to so many good people. – Peter King

90994. WikiLeaks presents a clear and present danger to the national security of the United States. – Peter King

90998. The Democrats in the Senate adopted a resolution, an amendment, saying that there should be no Guantanamo detainees brought into this country.

And I think people who sort of glibly say, ‘Well, you know, they’re not going to handle security, UAE is a great ally,’ four and a half years ago, they were not an ally, they were working with the enemy, and if those same people are still there today that were there then, these are real serious issues. – Peter King

91000. And if the imam and the Muslim leadership in that community is so intent on building bridges, then they should voluntarily move the mosque away from ground zero and move it whether it’s uptown or somewhere else, but move it away from that area, the same as the pope directed the Carmelite nuns to move a convent away from Auschwitz. – Peter King
