Bei einer Folge von “Zetro’s Toxic Vault,”  also die Online Show des ehemaligen und jetzigen EXODUS Sängers Steve “Zetro” Souza, hatte der zwischenzeitliche EXODUS Shouter Rob Dukes einen Auftritt und schaut zurück auf seinen Rauswurf im Jahr 2014 und auch auf seinen Einstieg, bei dem er den Gastgeber selbst ersetzt hatte.

Nicht sonderlich glücklich schien Dukes als er während der Proben zum letzten Album “Blood In Blood Out“ entlassen wurde. Er hätte ein Jahr gebraucht, um den Rauswurf zu verdauen. Zudem er gerade erst geheiratet hatte und nach Arizona gezogen war, eine Stadt in der er genau eine Person kannte.

Rob Dukes:

“I was angry for about a year. Maybe even longer. I was 47 years old. I got married five days before, and you fucking fire me. If I was by myself, if I was just me, I would have been okay with it. I was responsible for another human being. I just moved my entire life from my comfortable New York upbringing to a place where I know one person (Arizona), and I don’t even know him that well. I remember telling my wife, ‘We’re gonna be okay. It’s fine. We’re fine. I’ll sell my car and that’ll get us a year rent, and we’ll be okay. I’ll figure it out, we’ll be okay…’ but in my head I was fucking terrified. I felt like (Exodus) took something from me that I earned, that I deserved, but I was looking at it wrong. I didn’t deserve anything, I didn’t earn anything. I was grateful to be there and I tried to do the right thing. I remember writing a statement and putting it out there. I was grateful for going to over a hundred countries in my lifetime, playing in front of the millions of people that I got to play over 10 years. I was grateful for every opportunity that was given to me; I was honestly grateful. But also, I was angry, and I had every right to be angry, but I wasn’t able to see it for what it was until a year later. It took me a year.”
