Strike Of The Beast: 15 Years Gone

Fifteen years ago today, Paul Baloff left this mortal coil at the too young age of 41. They say a picture is worth a thousand words.. so here are 2,000 words on Baloff. These photos were taken by the teenage me.  I took many photos of Exodus between 1982-85,  but these 2 images are my favorite ones of Baloff.

Peace in rest, my old friend Pavel.

His legacy is forever and heavier than time.

Listen to the Bonded By Blood album and remember him.
