Slayer Officially Replace Dave Lombardo with Paul Bostaph
Slayer have officially replaced founding drummer Dave Lombardo with Paul Bostaph, Metal Insider reports. It's not the first time that Bostaph has joined the Slayer lineup, after a long stint in the '90s between 1992 and 2001 when Lombardo first left the band. He's also a former Exodus member, so Gary Holt who remains in both bands will rock alongside him once again. "Paul's a great drummer and a good friend, and we're very happy that he's decided to rejoin the band," said Slayer frontman Tom Araya. "We're still pretty numb from the loss of Jeff [Hanneman, the founding Slayer guitarist who died on May 2], but we don't want to disappoint our European and South American fans, and we need to begin moving forward... Having Paul back in the band makes that a whole lot easier." "I'm very excited to be rejoining Slayer," added Bostaph. "We spent a very intense ten years of our lives together, had a lot of fun, made a lot of great music, so for me, this feels like coming home." Slayer might be reeling from the sudden death of Jeff Hanneman, but ultimately they've got fans to please and a business to run, so it's great to see them reunited with a drummer who's already proven himself in their ranks. What do you think of the current Slayer lineup? Let us know in the comments.
