Curse of the drummers

POSTED Feb 22, 2013

This year's Soundwave festival has been hit with a spate of drummer-related disasters to rival those of Spinal Tap...

Blink-182, Anthrax and Six Feet Under will all be without their regular skin bashers for this year's festival, and now Slayer's Dave Lombardo won't be making the trip either, after being unceremoniously dumped by the band.

Lombardo says he was dropped after he complained about the way money was being handled and refused to sign a new contract with the group which forbade him from doing interviews or making statements about the band.

Soundwave boss AJ Maddah tweeted “Drummers are seriously ruining my week”.
