Jeff Hanneman, 1964 – 2013

May 2, 2013

Jeff Hanneman, guitarist of seminal band Slayer died at 49 on Thursday May 2nd, 2013.

Statement from Slayer:

OUR BROTHER JEFF HANNEMAN, MAY HE REST IN PEACE (1964 – 2013)

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.

The last time I saw Jeff Hanneman and his wife off-stage was backstage at one of their shows months before the spider-bite incident.
