Re: Dave Lombardo
In 2004, I was on a business trip in Vegas. One of my employees knew that I was a diehard Slayer fan. He bought us tickets for a show at the LV HOB. Anyway, I didn't know that Dave was back in the band. I had perfect seats in the balcony (I am too old for that pit stuff) and then I saw him. I was screaming like I was 15 again.
He played the balstaph stuff so magnificantly! He is so animated behind the set.
Then, to top it off, they played the entire Reign in Blood album for the oncore.
My associate who came with me was freaking out that I went so crazy during the entire show!
Dave makes Slayer what it is. He really is irreplaceable.
