Tom Araya is one of the richest American born rock stars, with a net worth of $28 million. Tom Araya has earned his net worth as an active part of the Rock community since 1981. He is best known for his participation in the heavy metal band Slayer. As one of nine children from South Gate, California,
Tom Araya (born Tom'as Enrique Araya D'iaz June 6, 1961 in Vi~na del Mar, Chile) is a Chilean American musician, best known as the bassist and vocalist of the American thrash metal band Slayer. Araya is ranked fifty-eighth by Hit Parader on their list of the 100 Greatest Metal Vocalists of All Time.
Araya was employed as a respiratory therapist in the early 1980s and used his earnings to finance Slayer's debut album Show No Mercy. Much of Araya's lyrical content is about serial killers, a subject he finds interesting, first making his lyrical contribution to 1985's Hell Awaits with the track "At Dawn They Sleep".
Araya said that he "grew up in a neighborhood that was pretty gang-oriented."
Araya's older brother Cisco played the guitar, leading Araya to pick up the bass at the age of eight. The two played Beatles and Rolling Stones songs, inspiring his musical interest.
In the early 1980s, Araya's eldest sister suggested he enroll as a respiratory therapist. Araya's father stated he either find a job or enroll in the course. Araya enrolled in a two year technical course, learning about air mixture ratios, drawing blood, and how to intubate.
In 1981, Araya was approached by Kerry King, who asked Araya to join his band Slayer. Araya accepted, using his earnings as a respiratory therapist to finance the band's 1983 debut album Show No Mercy. Araya requested that the hospital allow him time off for Slayer's first European tour in 1984, Araya was denied; "'We need you to come in today.' They'd call me at 5:00 in the morning and wake me, 'Someone's not coming in, we need you to come in to work.'" After a month of not turning up to work the hospital stated they would fire him; Araya replied "Well, I guess I'm fired."
Araya resides in Buffalo, Texas on a ranch with his wife Sandra and two children, daughter Ariel Asa Araya (b. 11 May 1996) and son named Tomas Enrique Araya, Jr. (b. 14 June 1999). He helps his wife run the farm, including looking after five
