Davey Goes Disney
Terrific news: Dave Lombardo has announced his latest post-Slayer gig! So for whom is he drumming? Is it time for the return of Grip Inc.? Will he be filling-in for Charlie Benante on the next Anthrax tour? Did Metallica finally kick Lars Ulrich to the curb?
I’ve been working on the music to a cartoon pilot for Disney and never thought It could be this much fun….Stay Tooned!!!

So see that right there is what we know as a “twist ending.” Absolutely nobody but nobody would have guessed that Lombardo’s next job would come from Disney. Or that Lombardo would turn out to have such a talent for puns.
But, hey, I’m not giving him shit. For one thing, the cartoon pilot could be great, and he could make great music for it. Remember that Cynic’s Paul Masvidal has worked on music for a bunch of television sitcoms (That ’70s Show, 3rd Rock from the Sun, etc.). There are definitely less-honorable ways to pay the bills. Like being the drummer for Slayer in the post-Hanneman era, for example.
