For weeks already, drumming legend Dave Lombardo was ready to move out of SLAYER after the band refused to offer him a better contract (details HERE). So if there is one person who was not surprised at all in the bands decision to bring Paul Bostaph back as their full time drummer (details HERE), that person was Dave Lombardo.
What's next for Lombardo?
During a recent interview with Greece's Rock Overdose, Lombardo confirmed that Casey Chaos from AMEN will be fronting a resurrected version of GRIP INC. A tour is in currently in the works, and the chances of a NEW GRIP INC. being recorded are very high.
You may recall that Lombardo formed GRIP INC. when he first left SLAYER in 1992. The band had been on and off since it formed, and their future was uncertain due to drummer Dave Lombardo's commitments with and the death of frontman Gus Chambers.
Lombardo is also very busy with his band PHILM (see below). They are currently recording their second studio album, the follow up to 2011's 'Harmonic'. The NEW PHILM should see the light of day later this year!
