On Tuesday Jon Dette Not Sure If He Will Permanently Replace Lombardo in Slayer was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Jon Dette won't comment on the possibility that he could rejoin Slayer full time after the band dropped drummer Dave Lombardo for their Australian tour.
But the stand-in sticksman admits he's enjoyed his stint with his former colleagues – and they appear to have enjoyed it too.
Founding member Lombardo was replaced at short notice by guitarist Kerry King after raising concerns over the thrash giants' business model. No word has been given on the chances of him getting back behind the kit – although King has said frontman Tom Araya has had doubts for some time.
Dette – who played drums in the mid-90s between Paul Bostaph's two stints before Lombardo's return – tells HeavyMag: "It's baby steps right now.
"I think it would be too early for me to make a comment like that at this time. But all I can tell you is that we're having a great time. It feels great on stage and everybody that's actually at the shows and seen the shows – not just the fans, but even the crew on the side of the stage – all have smiles on their faces. I must be doing something right; and I guess we'll see what the future brings." - more on this story
