Dave Lombardo has essentially been booted out of Slayer because of some shitty contract issues. From what I've gathered they were getting kinda screwed by the label, Dave did some investigations and then proposed a change to the contracts but was refused by Kerry who basically said if you don't like it, I'll find another drummer.

Does anyone else get a weird feeling of deja vu?

His full statement is here

I wonder what changes he proposed that made King flip out like that?


They make proper music and make more money. Also Kerry has to have guitar lessons.

"Hey Kerry, I made some revisions to the contract, I think this will raise all of our profits by 400%!"

"Hey, cool, Dave! Let's have a look at thi---..... What's this part about me never being allowed to solo in the chromatic scale again?"

"Look, Kerry, I'm just saying--"

"Get. Out."

I'm going to guess that people might actually get pissed if Kerry stops soloing utter nonsense. 'It just doesn't have the intensity, man'

His solos sound like he's raping a bagpipe with a violin.

Pooping is well good though, to be fair.

Lombardo's drumming was one of the parts of Slayer's style I really liked. Shamed Kerry forced him out [probably by playing a solo until Dave left the city] it sucks they're getting screwed over.

It might upset Kerrys endorsements if there label decides to drop them. That may have been why he was against it. It sounded like a risky move.
