With that in mind, I wish nothing but the best for Paul Bostaph.I bear no ill will towards him, and I think he's a great drummer, who's just been caught up in the mess.I mean, if I were in Bostaph's shoes, admittedly, I'd have joined as well.
King never gave a solid answer to this accusation(as far as I know) and Im guessing this is why alot of slayer fans are royally pissed. I've been a Slayer fan since about 1990 and I still love the band.
Everyone has their opinions and its great to share those opinions...
but sharing your opinion doesn't mean that everyone agrees with you.
I personally prefer the band with Lombardo behind the kit but Bostaph is a great drummer and the band sounded awesome with him so I'm looking forward to what they do with him in the band in the future.
It's ok to complain about Kerry King and Tom Araya and it's even ok to think that you know more about the situation than they do.
I personally think that the best people to handle Slayer's career is Slayer - not people complaining on the internet.
When I found out about the replacement of Dave so soon after Jeff's passing, I can't really say I'm surprised at that gargantuan mass of disrespect Kerry displayed here.
I can't imagine what that scary bald head of his looks like after inflating so much. Since becoming a fan, I've gone to see Slayer in concert every chance I've had. I don't want to support what Slayer now has become.
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. Reacting to the announcement, Lombardo simply tweeted: "And ... "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 ...
