5/2: RIP JEFF HANNEMAN

Posted by Eddie Category: TRUNK REPORT

Just heard the awful news a couple hours ago about the passing of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Jeff had been battling an infection from a spider bite but it was announced liver failure took his life today. I interviewed and hung with Jeff several times and it was always a blast. I last saw him in Indio CA during the Big 4 show there when he jumped up with Slayer for a few songs. I then ran into him at a hotel bar we were both staying at and said a quick hello. That was the last time I saw him. We just interviewed Dave Lombardo in TMS the other day and talked about how important it is for both he and Jeff to get back in Slayer. Sad that will now never happen and needless to say we will do our best to edit that interview in some way to show it was shot a couple days before this tragic news. Condolences to the Slayer fans, band and family of Jeff. RIP.
