JEFF HANNEMAN - R.I.P. (1964 - 2013)

It is with a heavy heart and a saddened mind that I pass along the devastating news that Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman has died. The cause of death is listed as liver failure. If you recall, it was about a year ago Kali Diaries posted Hanneman took the stage at Big 4 in Indio. This was a surprise as he was recovering from a nasty spider bite from 2011 which put him in a medically induced coma. At this time it isn't known if his death is related to his troubles from said spider bite.

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.

Our Brother Jeff Hanneman, May He Rest In Peace (1964 - 2013)
The Kali Diaries wishes to extend it's deepest sympathies and prayers to Jeff's family and friends.
