Lombardo Finds Out About Slayer Firing Online
Former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo has revealed that he found out about his being replaced on the internet. It was announced last week that Paul Bostaph would be taking over the position of drummer in the band permanently. Bostaph previously replaced Lombardo in 1992. Reacting to the announcement, Lombardo simply tweeted: "And ... there you have it folks!"

When a fan asked him how he had heard about the news, Lombardo replied: "Online."

Slayer frontman Tom Araya has released the following statement on Bostaph's rejoining of the band:

"Paul's a great drummer and a good friend, and we're very happy that he's decided to rejoin the band. 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."
