    RIP Jeff.

    He wrote a lot of my favorite Slayer songs.

    Would link some of their albums on youtube, but Cowboyszone is pretty strict on linking to places with not safe for work language. True story. I used to write reviews on the internet for books, and now and then on music as well. Pre-ordered "God Hates Us All" at WhereHouse Records by Slayer. Release date? 9/11/2001. Picked it up later that day, but didn't do the review till days later. Was just too weird. Was looking for God hating us all on 9/11/2001, and then 9/11 happened. My weird story for the week.

    My favorite band of all time. Unlike the other "Big 4" thrash bands (Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth), they never put out a bad album, imo. Diabolus in Musica was their weakest album but was still better than anything Metallica or Megadeth has released since ....And Justice or Rest in Peace, respectively.

    Early reports are saying that Jeff has been severely depressed since the spider bite, as he has been unable to play, and had been drinking heavily. He had been sober for two months and was on the liver transplant list and waiting on a donor. Unfortunately, he passed before a donor was found. :cry:

    Slayer was the music too my childhood. I first saw them in '88 on the South of Heaven tour and I have seen them 10 or so times since then and they always put on an awesome show.

    On the Seasons in the Abyss tour, we got there really, really early (my mom drove us, as I did not have a license yet) and were waiting outside the venue when Slayer and Testament pulled up in their tour bus. Jeff and Kerry from Slayer and Alex and Chuck from Testament proceeded to come over and ask us why we were there so early. When we told them, they asked us to come play softball with them in the parking lot! We played softball with Slayer and Testament and then got invited in to watch the soundcheck. Every member, from both bands, were amazingly cool and it was one of the highlights of my teenage years.

    I will miss the music that Hanneman created. He was an amazing musician and an awesome guy. May he rest in piece and Reign in Blood.

    Little fix, otherwise I agree with you. Last year Slayer and Gojira gig in Bratislava was one of the best show I ever saw. Standing in first row in front of Arraya. But this was without Jeff, I only saw them one time with Jeff :(.

    I listened to a little metal back in the day and Slayer was just a little too mullet for me. They lacked taste in terms of licks and melody. Megadeath was a lot better and making metal not sound so low class.

    Slayer and Gojira. Nice!

    Too me after Seasons in the Abyss they became a little hit and miss. Compared to the other three though, Slayer put out much better music overall.

    By the way. You don't always have to crap on threads.

    Chances are, if you listened to Slayer you didn't have a girlfriend. LOL Sorry, man, I was really just joking. I like all kinds of music. I recently watched a Slayer documentary and found that the male to female ratio of Slayer fans was about 100 men to every one girl. Oh, and the 80s haircuts were off the hook! Anyway, I didn't mean to crap on the thread, muck4doo (no pun intended).

    Nice way of crapping on the thread some more. Chances are you don't have a girlfriend, and spend your time crapping on threads to make up for it. Slayer was a great band. If you don't have anything nice to say, go crap on another thread. It seems to be your hobby.

    C'mon, man, Slayer was a mullet band. You don't see the humor in it? I'm not happy the guitarist passed, but the genre is sort of comical in hindsight. Is it not?

    No, it's not comical. There is a reason why people loved this band, and they lasted for decades. I hope someday you will grow up enough to see that.
