John Clayton Meets Slayer In Seattle [PHOTO]



Slayer, your favorite thrash metal band, played Seattle last night and there was a very special guest backstage who was wearing a sleeveless Slayer shirt. That’s right, Seattle resident John Clayton was at WAMU Theater for the performance and to meet his heroes.

You know the story: the internet (Deadspin) theorizes that Clayton has a ponytail, internet debates this theory for a year of so. ESPN takes the story and creates a SportsCenter promo where Clayton is rocking out to Slayer.

The commercial becomes a SportsCenter classic.

Eventually someone played the commercial for Slayer to get the band’s reaction and the love affair between Clayton-Slayer was formed.

John seemed to enjoy the show.
