Dave Lombardo, former Slayer drummer, returned for the first time to the city where he was born, Havana, Cuba.


On his Facebook page, the drummer wrote, “I finally went back to Havana, Cuba, after leaving the country with my parents when I was 14 months old. I was able to visit the family I had never met before. I visited the house where I was born and the family tomb. I had a wonderful encounter at the Submarino Amarillo with several journalists and bands, including the legendary Cuban metal band ZEUS. I’m looking forward to going back in May. What I experienced was nothing like what I imagined. visit this beautiful island.

A special thanks to Michel Hernandez of the newspaper Granma and Bill Laswell for inspiring this trip. ”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
