"Slayer" Drummer Visits Western Wall in Jerusalem


Dave Lombardo of the seminal American heavy metal band Slayer was photographed at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. Lombardo will be hosting a drum clinic and masters class tonight (Wednesday) in Tel Aviv. ProgStage, who is organizing the event, released a photo of Lombardo on Facebook showing him sticking a note into the cracks of the Western Wall, which has been a tradition for generations. Lombardo recently left the band Slayer, which he helped form in the 1980's. The group went on to sell millions of albums and win two Grammy awards. Lombardo is scheduled to return to Israel in 2014 to perform with the popular American metal band Iced Earth.
