Jeff Hanneman 1964-2013

Slayer’s riff powerhouse, Jeff Hanneman (aged 49), has passed away today.

The band posted the following on their Facebook-page:

“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.”

We here at Teeth would like to send our condolences to the family and friends. Jeff, thank you for the eternal riffs.

While every day is a good day to blast SLAYER, we’ll do it especially loud today.
