Slayer’s Tom Araya “On The Fence” About Lombardo, Says King

Kerry King

Christina Rowatt has redeemed herself.

The Soundwave TV hostess had a chance last week to talk with Slayer’s Kerry King, and did manage to ask a question of two about Dave Lombardo.

This, after talking with Tom Araya and not pursuing that most obvious line of questioning.

“It’s unfortunate that Dave couldn’t be with us,” King said. “I planned on him being here up until the Monday before I left. And then I saw trouble in paradise, and since I am the mastermind on making decisions like this, I was, like, ‘Alright, I’ve got a backup plan. Just in case.’ ‘Cause I would have hated to have just Australia blown out. Can you imagine how shitty that would have been? So I did what I thought was best, and we pulled it off.”

But what’s going on with Lombardo, and is he still in Slayer?

Tom, King says, saw Dave’s questions about finances coming.

Oh, and Tom has “been on the fence about Dave for awhile and I was pretty much the one that said, ‘Nah, I’m not comfortable moving on [without Dave].’ And then it got thrust in our face and I took action immediately and I got a very lucky culmination of things that happened.”
