Slayer guitarist tests positive

Slayer and Exodus guitarist Gary Holt has become the latest heavy rocker to test positive for COVID-19.

The musician has told fans he feels "great" and his health is "100 percent normal" in a since-deleted Instagram post, but he is self-quarantining while working on new music.

"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!" he said in the post, obtained by Blabbermouth.net.

"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!"

Holt was part of the Bay Strikes Back tour with Testament, whose singer, Chuck Billy, has also tested positive for the potentially deadly virus.
