    Jeff Hanneman - Slayer dead at 49

    Don't think there'll be too many Slayer fans here, Jeff was bitten by a spider in 2011 and nearly lost his arm due to a bacterial infection, never returned to the band but was said to be playing guitar and writing music again. Officially seems to be liver failure.

    The bite seemed to get treated fairly quickly and it was 2 years ago. He was a serious drinker and drug user for a long time.

    Yeh Slayer aren't really mass appeal music but good for releasing a bit of aggression. The fact that their singer is a born again Christian sorta ruins the look.
