Slayer Reunite With Paul Bostaph

.
(Classic Rock) Slayer have reunited with Paul Bostaph and hired him as their full-time drummer, replacing original member Dave Lombardo for the second time.

It's Bostaph's third stint with the thrash giants – he first joined in 1992 after Lombardo left, then departed himself in 1996 to be replaced by Jon Dette. He returned the following year and remained until Lombardo came back in 2002.

Dette had been covering live duties after Lombardo was dropped in February after a disagreement over contracts. Slayer say in a statement: "Tom Araya and Kerry King are very pleased to announce that Paul Bostaph has rejoined the band on a full-time basis. He will be behind the drumkit beginning June 4 when Slayer kicks off the first leg of its 2013 international tour in Poland."

Bostaph – who appeared on Slayer albums Divine Intervention, Undisputed Attitude, Diabolus In Musica and God Hates Us All –comments: "I'm very excited to be rejoining. We spent a very intense ten years of our lives together, had a lot of fun, made a lot of great music. This feels like coming home." more on this story
