SLAYER's Dave Lombardo Defends METALLICA's Lars Ulrich!

Metal Paths recently conducted an interview with SLAYER/PHILM drummer Dave Lombardo. You can now listen to the chat by clicking on the link below.

When asked about his relationship with the Kings of the Big Four, METALLICA, Lombardo made it very clear that he has a lot of respect for the band and its members.

"I've just been having a really nice time with [METALLICA members] Lars [Ulrich] and James [Hetfield] and [Robert] Trujillo and Kirk [Hammett]. They visit us in our dressing room, I go visit them. It's a very, very nice friendship and relationship. Me and Lars, we get along great. And I don't like people talking shit about Lars. So they have to stop. There are a lot of fans out there, they like to say a lot of bad things about him and he's a really good friend of mine and I don't like it."
