Former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo recently shared an interesting prognosis regarding the music industry, adding that the only was to revive that old magic is to ditch the computers from the formula.
Asked by Music Legends on where the music will be in 100 years, Lombardo replied, "Everyone will likely still be trying to figure out how Zeppelin (for example) achieved such a raw sound. If they lose the computers and get back to natural talent I think we just might have chance to bring back the magic that inspired us all in the first place."
During the rest of the chat, Dave noted getting into the funk domain lately, as well as returning to his all-time favorite punk records. "Lately I've been really into all aspects of funk," he said. "The Budos Band etc. I've always been into James Brown, but I've been listening to him a lot more lately. I've also been reaching into my vinyl collection and listening to some of my favorite punk albums. Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, Black Flag."
Focusing on his current musical endeavors, Lombardo detailed the upcoming Philm album. "As I mentioned we have a new album coming out," he said. "We don't have a definite release date but we are hoping before June. We already have six songs toward our third album."
Do you think the answer to our musical prayers comes in getting rid of the computers? Let us know in the comments.
