Well this is sad news...I wish him the best of luck though! I'll never forget seeing him play Souls of Black live back in 2012.

Sounds like a shitty situation, and sounds like Testament treated him worse than Slayer treated Dave for sure.
Yesterday don't mean SHIT.

"I know last week I said I'd talk about a [TESTAMENT] band meeting that happened in São Paulo.

"I don't care anymore. I'm done airing the ridiculous, and (believe it or not lol) I'm saying my final piece here.

"I could go on for as many years as I was back in TESTAMENT with stories of being slighted, lies, and greed, but my only real point or complaint is about live-performance money.

"I don't own any part of the records or anything else and don't really care. But to use my name and likeness, as an original member, along with a 'recognizable personality' (for lack of a better term) on stage, along with what I actually brought to the stage, pretty consistently (just look at YouTube) and refuse to give me anything other than the beyond-ridiculous deal of NOTHING EVER of show money — though I went through all the shitty travel, and all the other 'downsides' to everything, and had my face on the ads, did all the meet-and-greets, signings, and everything else — is simply wrong. Everything else aside, I worked for and earned, at least some kind of piece of that. That's undeniable. And I'd've been happy with a much smaller piece than I felt I was worth. But not zero.

"I believe it's personal. Directed solely at me. And I think there's a high likelihood it's a direct result of words I spoke back in '96. Though not very tactful, I wasn't exactly wrong about. And to push a petty grudge like that to this point is something I just can't understand. I would never do that to someone I hated, but to do that to someone you spent 20 years on the road with and helped you get where you are??? In my humble opinion (for whatever it's worth), that... that leaves me speechless. I just don't understand it.

"For your information, for ALL the shows I played in 2013 and ALL the travel and ALL the time away from home and family, [I earned] before taxes $37,775 [and] after taxes about $25,000. With no PD's [per diems] and our travel schedule, that's actually more like about $21,000. That's reality, and considering the $$$ TESTAMENT brought in for live performances in 2013, [it was] cruel and unusual.

"Thanks, guys. Love you too.

"[I have posted] a pic of my W2 [see below]. [i] don't want it to be the first thing people see, but if anyone has any doubts, there it is.

"Anyway... I know I can be a long-winded fuck, but I finally said my piece...

"This signals an end to my three weeks of throw-up Thursdays.

"I don't know how anyone else even reads this shit. Makes me sick, but I had to let it out, and now that I have this summarized, it may be time to see what an attorney thinks... I dunno??? But I'm not holding my breath lol.

These things are an absolute dumpster fire to read. He's really coming off as so petty posting all this on fb. I don't like seeing such a great band treat a member like shit. But he got screwed hard from them. Yet I cannot stop reading these when he posts. I feel so conflicted.

Dave Lombardo, Greg Christian & Rob Dukes should start a band. Dave Mustaine can do guitar.
