R.I.P Jeff Hanneman

Usually I don't post anything regarding the deaths of celebrities. But, when such a death occurs to someone who I feel was inspiring to me in any way, I must take the time to show my concern and appreciation. Today Jeff Hanneman, one of the lead guitarists from the Metal band 'Slayer', passed away due to liver failure. I grew up listening to Slayer. Their fast, aggressive, yet melodic style to me was the epitome of what a metal band should sound like. Jeff's songwriting abilities were completely ahead of their time. Riffs from songs like 'Angel of Death', 'Tormentor', and 'Postmortem' still make me bang my head! Needless to say, the Metal community and music in general was dealt a serious loss today. R.I.P Jeff
