Slayer's Paul Bostaph Feared He Would Never Play Again

(TeamRock Radio) Returned Slayer drummer Paul Bostaph spent last year worrying that he'd never play again, says his friend Gene Hoglan. Hoglan took the drumstool for Testament's recent album Dark Roots Of Earth to cover for Bostaph, who'd suffered an arm injury.

But it was much more serious than had been reported at the time, Hoglan reveals. "I've spoken to Paul about the injury," he says. "A lot of times when it's the press, it's like, 'Oh, he's injured.'

"He was telling me, 'Dude, I went for about a year thinking I may never play the drums again.' It involves knuckles and tendons and all sorts of crazy stuff." more on this story
