DAVE LOMBARDO: Video Footage Of Phoenix Drum Clinic
October 17, 2015
Former SLAYER and current PHILM drummer Dave Lombardo held a drum clinic on Friday, October 9 at Boogie Music in Phoenix, Arizona. Video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Lombardo was effectively fired from SLAYER after sitting out the band's Australian tour in February/March 2013 due to a contract dispute with the other members of the group. He has since been replaced by Paul Bostaph, who was previously SLAYER's drummer from 1992 until 2001 and recorded four albums with the band.
PHILM released its sophomore album, "Fire From The Evening Sun", on September 16, 2014 (one day earlier internationally) via UDR. The band's lineup is completed by guitarist/vocalist Gerry Paul Nestler (CIVIL DEFIANCE),and bassist Francisco "Pancho" Eduardo Tomaselli (WAR).
Lombardo recently told Louder Noise about PHILM: "The two albums that PHILM recorded are definitely different — very different, actually. The first one is a little more loose and it has three or four different improvisations within all the other songs; they're little special improvisations that we were able to capture. And the second one, yes, it was a little more tailored towards the heavier side of music. Actually, there's another album that we plan on releasing soon. It's called 'Philm Noir', and that's piano, bass and drums. Gerry plays piano really, really, really well, and Pancho, obviously, on bass and myself. I tone it down and play with brushes. So, I would say 'Fire From The Evening Sun' is the extreme side of PHILM, but then we also have a very avant-garde, jazz and ambient side of PHILM, which is 'Philm Noir'. So, between those two, 'Harmonic', the first album, is somewhere there in the middle. There is a variety."
