R.I.P. Jeff Hanneman, Slayer

Slayer Live At Rock Am Ring 2010 Full Concert 1080p

Sad news about Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who had been sidelined since 2011 due to necrotizing fascitis from a spider bite.

Billboard published this statement:

"Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11AM this morning near his Southern California home.  He was 49.  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."

Slayer is kind of the definition of "not a video band," and most of the songs seem inappropriate to highlight when someone dies (Hell Awaits? Angel Of Death? Post Mortem?).

So, instead, here's a full concert. Deal with it.
