Dave Lombardo puts an end to PHILM
Dave Lombardo, he of Slayer notoriety, has revealed that he's parted ways with PHILM, of whom he's been a member for roughly four years. Speaking via the Let There Be Talk podcast, Lombardo said:
"I'm not gonna talk about it. They didn't want me to promote the band while I was with them, and I'm certainly not gonna do it when I'm without them... I don't wanna talk about it anymore. Yeah, so I just said, 'See ya!'... They said 'Don't play hard. We want you to play a little softer.' I said, 'Nope.'"UPDATE: Lombardo has now clarified the situation:
"To be clear: I did not 'exit' PHILM, I ended PHILM. Thank you to all who supported that band. Now, I'm off to the studio to do what I love... play the fuckin' drums."
