jeff-hannemanBorn Jeffery John Hanneman January 31, 1964 in Oakland, CA.

Died May 2, 2013

Jeff Hanneman, founding member of the  legendary thrash metal band Slayer has died of liver failure.  He was 49.  A statement released by Slayer says thus:

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.

While I have never been a huge fan of Slayer, their influence on bands that I do listen to is obvious.  Let’s all send out good vibes to his family.
