The Bay Area metal band Exodus formed in 1980 and once featuring Kirk Hammett before he graduated to Metallica is still kicking literally and figuratively.
Drummer Tom Hunting is one of the founding members, and although he left the band twice, in 1989 and 2004, he rejoined in 2007 and is happy to be back.
"I've always missed the fans," he said of his absences. "Mostly, I miss my brothers in the band. I'm not in it to be a star."
