Slayer Drummer Dave Lombardo To Tour With Korn

According to a reliable source, Slayer drummer, Dave Lombardo, who has been in a dispute with the band these past few weeks over financial disagreements, will spend his summer touring with nu metal pioneers, Korn instead. Korn’s own drummer, Ray Luzier, has been forced to sit out of the band’s summer festival schedule with an elbow injury, leading to the legendary thrash skinsman to take his place behind the kit.

“It’s truly an honour to have a drummer of such magnitude performing with us this summer,” read a statement from Korn. “We grew up listening to Slayer records, and we can’t wait to hear what Dave will bring to the table. Europe! Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance this Summer!”

The band’s tour dates will see the band perform at such festivals as Download in the United Kingdon, Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium and Rock am Ring in Germany.

According to james, this is not a done deal.
Korn considered lomabardo for there next studio album, but nothing concrete has been setteled.
Lombardo has also been trying out with other bands such as dream theatre, 4 jacks and a jill, the chris viden project, churchburn, ted nuggents new project meat lovers caboray and the blindgreed side project dead money.
As soon as any decision has been made by lombardo or any of the bands, you"ll hear it here first, if not us then blabbermouth.net
