Jeff Hanneman - Slayer's Guitarist Dead at 49


Today Slayer's one and only guitarist Jeff Hanneman died at the age of 49.  He passed away at 11 AM this morning near his house in California.  The bands publicist stated:

"Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure."

As we all know that Slayer is one of the most influential bands of all time and Jeff was one of them that started it all. This is a sad day in the metal community.
