Slayer to Carry on for Jeff Hanneman
Kerry King states that Slayer's story will go on for Jeff Hanneman. In a recent interview with Entertainment Daily News (via Classic Rock), Kerry King has spoken about how the iconic metal band will keep on playing in memory of the late axeman. "Jeff is going to be in everybody's thoughts for a long time," King said. "It's unfortunate you can't keep unfortunate things from happening. But we're going to carry on and he'll be there in spirit." The guitarist also noted that, offstage, Hanneman was a quiet man who shied away from award shows. "Coming to something like this wasn't really his spiel. He wasn't an awards show kind of guy; he wanted to be the quiet guy doing his thing at the hotel." The news comes after it was announced that former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo will be playing on the new Sepultura record. Lombardo was replaced by drummer Paul Bostaph earlier this year after a contractual dispute with his former band.
