Jeff Hanneman died today. He's been out of the picture for a while with a very strange infection from a spider bite (THAT'S BRUTAL), but still, no one saw this coming.
If you're a metalhead, you're into Slayer. Whether it's the classic stuff, some oddball music in between, or the newer material, everyone has some SLAYER in them.
I really hope the band discontinues making new music and touring at this point because the Slayer we've all grown up with is no more. Drummer Dave Lombardo is basically out of the band and with the death of Jeff, Slayer will never be the unstoppable force it has always been ever again.
So horns up to the sky...rest in peace Jeff-man. You've always been a great influence of mine and myself and the metal community will miss you.
