"Statement From Dave Lombardo Regarding Slayer Australian Tour 2013

I want to personally apologize to all of our fans in Australia who have bought tickets for the tour expecting to see me in my usual place on the drums.

So that you all know the truth, as of the end of the business day on February 14th, I was notified that I would not be drumming for the tour in Australia. Iím saddened, and to be honest I am shocked by the situation.

Last year, I discovered 90% of Slayerís tour income was being deducted as expenses including the professional fees paid to management, costing the band millions of dollars and leaving 10% or less to split amongst the four of us. In my opinion, this is not the way a bandís business should operate. I tried rectifying it by letting my band mates know, and Tom and I hired auditors to figure out what happened, but I was denied access to detailed information and the necessary back up documents.

I spent the Christmas and New Year holidays realizing I had toured all over the world in 2012, but yet, had not been paid (except a small advance) or provided a proper accounting for a full year's sweat and blood. On top of this, I was told that I would not be paid until I signed a long form contract which gave me no written assurance of how much or on what basis management would deduct commissions, nor did it provide me access to the financial budgets or records for review. It also forbade me to do interviews or make statements having to do with the band, in effect a gagging order.

Last Monday, I sat down with Kerry and Tom to rehearse for Australia and to propose a new business model that I felt was the best way forward for Slayer to confidently protect itself so we could do what we do best . . . play for the fans. Kerry made it clear he wasnít interested in making changes and said if I wanted to argue the point, he would find another drummer. On Thursday, I arrived at rehearsals at 1 pm as scheduled, but Kerry did not show. Rather, at 6:24 pm I received an email from the lawyers saying I was being replaced for the Australian dates.

I remain hopeful that we can resolve our issues. But once again, I sincerely apologize to all of our fans in Australia who spent their money expecting to see the 3 of us original Slayer members.
I look forward to seeing you in the future.

Sincerely,
Dave Lombardo"

Maybe it's time for Slayer to quit. For good.

Time for Slayer to reform with Jeff and Dave and a couple hired guns on second guitar and bass/vocals.

I vote for Yngwie Malmsteen and Les Claypool. Yeah sure it will be horrible, but more interesting than anything Slayer has done for years.

Divine Litigation. Kerry spent all the money on Paul Booth tattoos.

Nah, Dave should form another band called SLAYA with Casey Chaos on vocals/bass, Buckethead and the guy from Static X on guitars and tour to spite the other members.

The whole thing is a joke at this stage. My fave King quote from the past while was

Quote:
I talk to my manager, he talks to Jeff periodically, and he's still trying to get back in the game.


No secret they hate eachother, but some of this stuff is comical. Anyone remember the rumours that hetfield was going to kick Lars out of Metallica and get Lombardo in. He mysteriously left Slayer in 1986 for a short time so maybe true. Wonder how things would have panned out....

hope this gets more ugly and more dirty laundry gets aired in public. car crash stuff Laughing

Meh! Slayer up until 1990 were great but they have been in decline since then.

Lombardo may still be a great drummer but these days they are just a band for orange boiler suit clad prisoners who used to put penpal ad's in Metal Maniacs

Slayer havent even written a good riff in the past 20 years. This band should of quite ages ago.
No wonder Lombardo quit AGAIN.
Fuckin Kerry King will proberbly put out a statement that reads like this.

"Yo dudes Dave was being a douche,so y know what i fired his ass.He was being a dillwad and a complete ass.Dudes im like y know whatever man, I got us a new dude on drums kickin ass man! "

wiggers!

Slayer's been terrible since the 90s. Dave's lucky that he's no longer on that shit barge, especially if he wasn't getting paid well.

Slayer have announced that Jon Dette will fill in for Dave Lombardo on the Australian dates. Jon Dette played on the "Undisputed Atittude" tour in 1996 promoting the album.
