Dave Lombardo Doesn't See Himself Reuniting With Slayer

(TeamRock Radio) Dave Lombardo doesn't believe he'll ever return to Slayer after his third stint with the thrash giants came to an end with his sacking last year. And he's suggested it was easier for former colleagues Kerry King and Tom Araya to dismiss him than to deal with what he feels were legitimate queries about the outfit's business affairs.

The drummer recently said things had come to head when he discovered he was being paid an average of $745 per show, while King and Araya received $1266 - even though the band was taking $49,000 per night.

Asked whether there's any chance of another return to the fold, Lombardo tells Radio Screamer: "I don't think that's ever going to happen again. When I returned in 2001 I had been ten years out of the band, and it felt like it was the right time. We didn't have any grudges - but apparently that wasn't really the case."

He says the attitude that led to his departure was: "'Oh well, he left in 1992, so just get him out again.'" more on this story
