Poor sod had a crappy couple of years – bitten by a spider that caused a skin eating infection, followed by skin grafts and rehab, and being unable to tour. Now dead at 49. Still, lets celebrate his life as he did!

Another dead hero 🙁
Saw Slayer in a 1500 capacity venue around 94/5 ish. It remains the single most full-on, intense gig I have ever experienced. I remember none of my friends wanted to go as they were deeply unfashionable so as a 16 year old I went on my own, spent the entire gig crushed at the front, came out covered in bruises and got to meet Kerry & Jeff afterwards.
RIP brother, only 49 years on this planet but your influence will go on for a long long time…Posted 4 years agoTom BMember
I saw them at the first ever Download festival….they missed their slot on the main stage so were stuck on the second stage (smallish tent at the time) It was rammed with people hanging off the rigging etc…..when the came on stage and broke into Angel of Death it was what I imagine that the apocalypse will be like!!!

Always saw Jeff as the quiet one in that lot.
Real shame though, only 9 years older than me, ****.
Rest well Jeff

RIP. When I made an Extreme Wheelbarrowing video a few years back, only one soundtrack would do. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10150267318905125&set=vb.107342829303888&type=3&theaterPosted 4 years agorobgarriochSubscriber
Didn’t even know about Hannemans illness till now. Been an odd, surprising morning reading about it.
First saw them on Clash of the Titans 1990, couple of days after my 18th & before buying any of their albums – hadn’t a clue I’d see them another half-dozen times.
The writer of my #1 fast song:
Spooky coincidence – just played ‘Point’ in memoriam, & a siren went past outside; fitted the music pretty well.

Great musician, author of many brilliant riffs (War Ensemble, SoH, Dead Skin Mask), instantly recognisable sound. One of those iconic moments in metal culture when he and Kerry King would simultaneously step forward and start headbanging, what a shame he never got himself back in shape to play with the band again. RIP.Posted 4 years agocarlosgMember
Shit , just read this after a week(ish) without internet. I’m really shocked , had heard about the spider bite but can’t believe what it has caused.
I’m another die hard Slayer fan and have seen them live over 20 times in the last 20+ years , I loved the way Jeff and Kerry would swap their solo’s about seamlessly in live sets I’ll really miss not seeing him perform again.
RIP Jeff , I’m gonna blow my ears out tonight 😈Posted 4 years agomrmoofoMember
