I am completely shocked and somewhat gutted to confirm that Slayer have reported guitarist Jeff Hanneman has passed away. A Statement Read:-
“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)”
I would oviously like to start by offering my deepest to Jeff’s bandmates, his friends and his family. I knew That Jeff had been fighting some really strange virus but I have to say that this was completely shocking and unexpected news! So I’d like to at this point share some of my favourite Slayer moments.
