Posted by on March 31, 2020


According to a deleted Instagram post by Gary Holt (Exodus/Slayer), the guitarist finally received his COVID-19 test results and it turns out, he did contract the virus during the European Bay Strikes Back tour with Testament and Death Angel. No need to worry on Holt as it appears he’s been fully recovered.


Blabbermouth reports, the deleted Instagram post read the following:

“So I finally received my test results back and positive it was. Lisa’s came back negative, and it’s been long enough since my symptoms that I am officially in the clear to do the only things I’m allowed, like buy my own groceries! I feel great, made it through the tougher moments, and my health feels 100 percent normal. Thanks to everyone who had wished us well. Now it’s time to start working on some new Exodus riffs while I’m still basically stuck in my house!”


Based on other Instagram posts, Holt seems to be doing much better as he’s spent a bit of time this morning sharing hilarious quarantine memes:
