Slayer Guitarist Jeff Hanneman Dead At 49

Some terrible news to wake up to this morning: Slayer have confirmed via a post of their Facebook page that guitarist Jeff Hanneman has passed away. Their statement is as follows:

"Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11AM this morning near his Southern California home. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed.

Our Brother Jeff Hanneman, May He Rest In Peace (1964 - 2013)


Our thoughts are with Jeff's family, friends and the band at this time. RIP Jeff Hanneman
