Tom Hunting is the drummer and a founding member of Exodus. In the band's earliest days, he also served as their vocalist. After helping form the band in 1980, he played with them until leaving in 1989. He reunited with Exodus in 1997 but left again in 2004 as a nervous problem impeded his ability to perform, although it was made clear that he was welcome to rejoin whenever he felt ready to do so. Tom rejoined the group in 2007.
