legendary drummer dave lombardowho is currently on the road with SHALLtalked about his former band killer during a meet-and-greet before SHALL‘s April 16 concert at Sunshine Theater in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When asked about his favorite memories of his time with the thrash metal icons, Lombard said, “I think the early tours where we were just crazy, we were just crazy, those were fun times. When we got older, everyone just started going their own way. But I think the early days were fun times – you know, the pictures you see of us all together and the EXODUS guys too. That period.”

Lombardwho has spent most of the past few years among crossover pioneers SUICIDAL TRENDShorror-punk icons ACCIDENTShardcore supergroup DEATH CROSS and mr. BUNGLESwas effectively fired from killer after serving the group’s Australian tour in February/March 2013 due to a contract dispute with the other band members. He was later replaced by Paul Bostaphuwhich was before killerdrummer from 1992 to 2001.

Shortly after his resignation, Lombard said he found that 90 percent of the killerTour revenues were deducted as expenses, including management fees, which cost the band millions and left them about 10 percent to split into four parts. While he and bassist/vocalist Tom Araya hired accountants to find out what had happened, Lombard said he was never allowed to see the information obtained.

A few years ago, killer guitarist Kerry King said that “when Dave was in [SLAYER] this last time i thought i’d be on stage with him until one of us fell off stage dead. Things change. He got bad advice and listened to bad advice, gave us an ultimatum ten days before we went to Australia [to do the Soundwave festival tour]† And I said, “I can’t have this over my head.” And I feel sorry for Dave up to the present day; I really feel sorry for him for shooting himself in the foot. Maybe he thought he had the upper hand, but you’re not getting me.”

Lombard rejoined SHALL earlier this year.

Dave was the guest drummer on SHALL1999 studio album “The meeting”which was also the band’s first time working with the then up and coming British producer/engineer Andy Snap
