Doug Goodman tours the world with whoever will pay him as a tour manager and a tour accountant. His first tour was in 1984 in Tom Araya's Camaro, and 3000 shows later, it's still among his favorites. Doug has toured with band's as diverse as Ben Folds Five, Cannibal Corpse, Jewel, Steve Earle, Beck, Smashing Pumpkins and Green Day; but none were, or are, as heavy as Slayer. When he's not on the road he and his wife, Michele, can be found watching a baseball game at Dodger Stadium.
