Lombardo Learned of Slayer Firing Online
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."
