You have to feel for Gary Holt a little. Despite being there right at the beginning, and being the central figure of a band all of the major players in thrash – Kerry King and Scott Ian being just two – cite as one of the most important in the movement, Exodus have never quite achieved the wide popularity of the Big Four, and never quite fulfilling the destiny their debut suggested they were set for.
