I don't know if we have many metalheads here on PT but this is worth a mention in my opinion. Jeff Hanneman, guitarist & co-founding member of the iconic and hugely influential Thrash Metal band SLAYER has died at 49 of liver failure. No real info yet as to whether the liver failure is directly linked to the spider bite he received in 2011 which cause flesh eating disease and which he has been battling since then. It is a sad day for METAL and all SLAYER fans. The world has lost an icon of the metal world.
RIP JEFF - TEAR IT UP BROTHER...the heavens have opened up here so I know you have arrived and you're giving them hell!!!
