    Yeah, saw this on a few feeds on Facebook on the day of. He actually died due to liver failure, and they're not sure if that's related to the spider bit or not. The spider bite had him out of the band for quite awhile due to necrotizing fasciitis.

    Problem is, due to nonsense of Kerry King's, Slayer's been on life support really. Dave Lombardo realized shit wasn't right in how they were getting paid, and he an Araya got lawyers and looked into shit. When Lombardo pressed, King said back off or he'd find another drummer. Then he just up and replaced Lombardo. They already had someone filling in for Hanneman, now they had to get a fill in for Lombardo, and to top it off, for the Autralia tour Araya is sitting it out for back surgery, so they're bringing Jason Newsted in as bassist and vocalist temporarily.

    Frankly I think it's a fucking joke and it sounds like King is seriously ego tripping and getting all the cash at this point. He's a useless fuckwad and not even that good a guitar player, his "solos" are just really fast noise that a lot of folks mistake for skill. Hanneman wrote the vast majority of what people consider classic slayer, Lombardo is the drummer for the band, and nobody but Araya can deliver the yells, screams, and wails that are trademarks of Slayers music.

    I feel sorry for Australian Slayer fans.

    Slayer is dead.
    Long live Slayer! :rockon

    Apparently it's common enough from Brown Recluse bites that most folks think it's the venom that causes it. Not sure what he got bit by though.

    Sad that I only knew about it because of those douchebags in the westboro baptist church. I'm usually a pacifist, but if they protest his funeral and a slayer fan decides to kidnap them, torture them, and light them on fire, I'd b perfectly fine with it.

    Rock on mr hannerman, rock on :) Index finger: up, pinky: up, head: bangin'
