It has been brought to my attention that the guitarist of legendary thrash metal act Slayer, Jeff Hanneman has passed away. Slayer announced today, via their Facebook page, that Hanneman passed away due to liver failure. We all know that Hanneman has been sitting on the sidelines for quite a while, as his spider bite from a few years ago has left him pretty messed up. Below you can read the official statement from the band.
Our Brother Jeff Hanneman, May He Rest In Peace (1964 – 2013)
