About Kerry King

King Kerry is a guitarist born on June 3rd, 1964 whose net worth is $15 million. He made his money as a rhythm guitarist for Heavy Metal Giant Slayer. As a teenager, King started learning to play the guitar at Calvano’s music located in South Gate, California. While trying out for a guitarist position in a band in 1981, he was approached by Jeff Hanneman and they began playing Judas Priest songs and Iron Maiden with the drummer.

He is well known for his work as a lead guitarist and co-founder of the American thrash metal band, Slayer, and has been described as one of the most influential person in heavy or thrash metal since he started Slayer. His unique guitar style has remained similar over the years giving him a distinctive sound since he focused on chaos and rather than on melody. He has been a long time snake breeder and noted herpetoculturist who has been known to show up at Southern California reptile events unannounced.
