Slayer Guitarist Jeff Hanneman Has Passed Away

Filed under Daily Music News

IMG_7247 copy-LThese are the kind of news reports we hate to have to share.

According to a statement posted by Slayer on their Facebook page, guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed away today due to liver failure:

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)

We’d like to extend our sincere condolences to Slayer and Jeff Hanneman’s family, friends and fans.

Concert Gallery: Metallica at “The Big Four” in Indio, CA

On April 23, 2011 Empire Polo Fields in Indio, CA was transformed into the metal Motherland as “The Big Four” descended upon the desert for their only North America appearance. Living up to their name “The Big Four” of Thrash, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax delivered up legendary performances. Check out our galleries from the show below!

Oh and never fear East Coast, we’re not out of this yet! Metallica’s Lars Ulrich told RollingStone.com that more U.S. “Big Four” dates are possible. “We are looking to book something on the East Coast because of the success of this — it should hopefully come together in a week or two,” Ulrich said. “Maybe we’ll do somewhere in the Midwest and South, too. Still, I don’t think it will turn into a 40-date arena tour; that would make it less special. I like the fact that there’s an element of chaos to the whole thing. It shouldn’t be sterile, streamlined and perfect: it needs an edgy underbelly to remain authentic.”
