Lombardo Says Slayer Weren't Really His Friends

(TeamRock Radio) Fired Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo says he'd realised his former bandmates were never his friends. He was dropped in February after a contractual dispute between him and ex-colleagues Tom Araya and Kerry King.

Later in the year, following the death of guitarist Jeff Hanneman, the split was made permanent when sticksman Paul Bostaph was named a permanent fixture.

Now Lombardo, who's focusing on latest band Philm, tells My Global Mind: "I realise now they weren't really my friends - they were just business partners.

"I lived and hung out with them as if they were friends: 'Wow, these guys are really watching out for me,' and it didn't quite turn out that way."

His position may have been emphasized when he set about reorganizing his career after the split - and discovered he'd been missing out on royalty payments. See what he had to say about that.
