Lombardo Learned of Slayer Firing Online

(Classic Rock) Dave Lombardo discovered he was out of Slayer the same way his fans did: by reading the news on the internet. The drummer was dropped in February following a contractual disagreement with colleagues Kerry King and Tom Araya, but was hoping the situation could be resolved.

But the thrash giants confirmed on Thursday they'd hired Paul Bostaph – who replaced Lombardo when he left in 1992 – on a full-time basis. Reacting to the move, Lombardo tweeted "And… there you have if folks!" Asked by a fan how he'd heard, he replied: "Online."

It's the third time he's split from the outfit he co-founded, after first departing in 1986. In April he admitted he was concentrating on side-project Philm as his main focus, but said fans should "cross your fingers" over a return to Slayer in time for their European tour. more on this story
