Slayer Issue Statement Regarding Drummer Situation

Posted by - 05:50 PM on 02/21/13
Slayer have issued a statement regarding drummer Dave Lombardo's recent claims. Jon Dette is filling in on the band's current Australian tour.
Slayer confirms that Jon Dette will drum for the band on its Australian tour that starts this Saturday, February 23 in Brisbane. As regards Dave Lombardo‘s Facebook post, Slayer does not agree with Mr. Lombardo‘s substance or the timeline of the events, except to acknowledge that Mr. Lombardo came to the band less than a week before their scheduled departure for Australia to present an entirely new set of terms for his engagement that were contrary to those that had been previously agreed upon.

The band was unable to reach an agreement on these new demands in the short amount of time available prior to leaving for Australia. There is more to the account than what Mr. Lombardo has offered, but out of respect to him, Slayer will not be commenting further. Slayer is grateful to its Australian fans for their understanding of this unfortunate last-minute change, and very much looks forward to seeing them at these shows.

This whole debacle is almost entertaining to me. After all, this is the music "business" that we all forget exists outside of our speakers.

honestly is anyone still in this band at this point! Jeff is still out with a flesh eating virus (last time I checked), and now Dave Lombardo is out. Honestly if I was a fan of this band and in Australia, I'd be pretty pissed off right now.

Anthrax too. Dette is pulling double duty with them and Slayer.

Go read that Johnny Ramone autobiography. He basically saw the Ramones as a 9 to 5 job.
