    Jeff Hanneman RIP

    Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman dies of liver failure 2 years after a flesh-eating bug caused by spider bite | Mail Online

    Slayer guitarist passed too soon.
    Slayer founder and guitarist Jeff Hanneman has died of liver failure just two years after contracting a rare skin disease.
    The thrash pioneer, who set up the heavy metal outfit in 1981, passed away in a California hospital on Thursday.
    He had been off the road since early 2011, when he contracted necrotizing fasciitis a quickly progressing disease that eats away at the flesh from deep layers of skin and tissue.


    CFH HMagic bball season next year.

    Re: Jeff Hanneman RIP

    Heard on NPR this morning that he wrote most (maybe all) of Reign In Blood. Not a huge fan of Slayer but I've heard that record many times and it's brilliant.

    Regarding spider bites, I have first hand experience with Brown Recluse bites and they are no joke.


    RIP Janice

    Hanneman is truly a metal legend. The song Raining Blood (in some way, shape, or form) has been covered by so many of different groups, that its really mind boggling. I've seen Ska bands do it live. String Quartet cover it? Yes, they have! Tori Amos had a weird somber version of it. Obviously tens of thousands of bands from some form of the metal genre as well. It was on an episode of south park. So much power building and releasing in that song. It seems infectious on so many levels.

    Reign in Blood has to be in the top 10 of the most influential metal albums.

    I've seen Slayer countless times, and they never once half-assed it live. Whether it was in front of 5 thousand or 55 thousand they always brought it like they just wrote it 2 weeks ago.

    Hanneman had made comments over the years that he knew he couldn't continue on with Slayer forever. Mainly citing the physical nature and sheer demands of playing such fast music, and how age would likely prevent them from being able to still play the songs appropriately. In a recent interview from 2011, he surmised they had maybe 5-10 years left before they would hang it up. I'm trying to imagine a farewell tour and the insanity surrounding it had they been making one last trek across US soil together.

    Re: Jeff Hanneman RIP

    RIP Hanneman!! Slayer hasn't put out a good album since Undisputed Attitude, but everything they put out in the 80s is amazing. Seasons in the Abyss is my favorite album of all time! Reign in Blood and South of Heaven are easily in my top 15. Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits are top 50... Hanneman is/was the better of the two guitarists, and was the quiet one who seemed to love making music, while Kerry King has gone on to see Slayer as a business. I lost a ton of respect for the band over the years, but will always be a huge fan no matter what! SLLAAAAAYYYYEEERRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Brad, you sumbitch!!! haha. Slayer has been using Gary Holt from Exodus the last couple years to replace Hanneman. Decent replacement I suppose. Recently Kerry King kicked Dave Lombardo out of the band because Lombardo mentioned that he had not been being paid for his services as a band member. King kicked him out instead of paying him the money that was due to him. Lame!!!!
