Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo was recently notified by the band’s managers that he would not be needed for their Australian tour dates. According to Lombardo, those who handle the business of Slayer were doing shady things and he clashed with guitarist Kerry King when he tried to do something about this. King claims Lombardo came to the band with a new set of terms just a week before leaving for Australia and that the band had to dismiss him from the tour when they were unable to reach an agreement with him. Jon Dette of Testament will pound the skins while Slayer tours Australia. Dette will also be drumming for Anthrax during the tour as drummer Charlie Benante was forced to take a break because of “personal issues.”
