RIP: Jeff Hanneman

Another very sad blog post today. From CNN: "Grammy-winning guitarist Jeff Hanneman, a founding member of the heavy metal band Slayer, died Thursday of liver failure in Southern California, the band said in a statement. He was 49. "Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11 a.m. this morning near his Southern California home. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure," the band said in a statement posted on its website and Facebook page. Hanneman leaves behind his wife, Kathy, a sister and two brothers. "He ... will be sorely missed," the band said." A Sleestak side note: Marcus and I had the great honor of opening for Slayer when we played in our old band Atomic Number 9. This was back in 1999. Anyways, it was definitely a highlight for us and our musical "careers" and personally I like to brag about it because really, how many bands can say they did that?
