Slayer's Kerry King Feels Bad For Dave Lombardo

(TeamRock Radio) Slayer guitarist Kerry King says he feels sorry for dropped drummer Dave Lombardo. And he's vowed that the band will keep going until either he or frontman Tom Araya want to stop.

The thrash giants have endured a difficult year after dropping founding member Lombardo in February when he called for changes to his contract. In May they lost co-founder Jeff Hanneman, who died after a two-year illness.

But the band are back in action with drummer Paul Bostaph confirmed as Lombardo's full-time replacement, and Exodus axeman Gary Holt remaining in place as stand-in for Hanneman.

"I feel bad for Dave to this day. I really feel bad for him because he shot himself in the foot," King tells The Steve Austin Show (via Blabbermouth). "He got some bad advice and gave us an ultimatum ten days before we went to Australia. I said, 'I can't have this over my head' and before I got home I knew exactly what I was going to do for Australia." more on this story
