Dear Kathy,
I am so very sorry for your loss. My husband, Brian, was a HUGE Slayer fan. I lost him, suddenly, in 1/2012. He was 47. He also died of liver failure. You most likely not read this, but if you do...you need to know how much his music meant to a lot of people. When Brian found Slayer, it was like he found his voice, an outlet so to speak. And dont spend too much time alone. And know that I share your grief. Please take care and find strength where you can. Sincerely, Joan Walters Pahrump,NV. Formerly from Newark, CA so went to many, many shows.

Jeff was a true pioneer in the metal world and was pretty much my favorite guy in Slayer and he changed the way I approached guitar playing ... still hard to believe he is no longer with us ... I first saw Slayer in 1984 and was blown away ... well I've seen them 21 times since then and are and forever will be my favorite band ... I raise a glass and the horns \m/(>.<)\m/ ... to Jeff Hanneman one of the best, you will truly be missed

May 08, 2013
For 25 years Slayer has been my favorite band. Your music has been with me through the thick and thin of my life.
As a founding member and main songwriter for the band, Jeff was the heart and soul of Slayer. His passing will leave a void that cannot be filled.
Rest in Metal, brother.

Thanks for the killer riffs over the years. I first heard "Show No Mercy" back in '84 (I think), and I was hooked.

Thank you for everything you have done for metal and music in general. You will always be remembered. Jeff Hanneman the true "Angel of Death". Your riffs and lyrics have inspired hundreds of metal heads to start a band and play music in hopes to achieve the greatness of Slayer and for that I thank you. Your music, your talent, your greatness will live forever. I can only hope that I as a musician can make music as amazing as Slayer and the work you put into it. I wish I could have witnessed you play live in person but at least I have your music to listen to at home and on the road. I will never forget you and your inspiration will live in me until I die. Thank you.
May 08, 2013
you were a god amung mortals and will be mist
May 08, 2013
Many years ago at a release party for 'Amen' you played with a neon pink plastic tiara I was wearing, we had few moments of laughing, it was awesome! Almost three years ago, you played Long Beach, I ran into an old friend, we've been married a year, thanks to a Slayer show. You've been a good influence in our life. Thanx Jeff. You were too young, gone too soon, you will be missed.
May 08, 2013
Thanks for the music and integrity.
You, Sir, were truly a Riffmeister and inspiration for legions of bands to come.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Hanneman

May 08, 2013
Slayer was my introduction into extreme Heavy Metal. When I was 13 y.o. I read about "Reign in Blood" beeing the fastest and most extreme Heavy Metal record ever. So I slaughtered my piggy bank, graped my crappy bike and rode to town to purchase it at the local record store (which doesn't exist anymore). The first chords of "Angel of Death" then totally blew me away. This song, written by Mr. Jeff Hanneman, ultimately sparked the Metal-Flame within myself and made me the long haired, beer absorbing and guitar thrashing scum bag I am. Thank you, Jeff. You'll be missed.
May 08, 2013
Rest In Peace Jeff, you influenced me since I was a teenager and you are one of the musicians that are responsible for made my musical taste. Your music changed my life... Thank You....

May 08, 2013
(I posted this when I first heard the news, my condolences go out to his family, the band & everyone affected by a legend lost) It truly hits home when someone who has been a MAJOR influence & part of your life for over 2 decades is gone....people might think I am silly but when you had the upbringing I had & all you had to escape it was your music, its as heartbreaking as losing a loved one....funny thing is, I don't really have any people left in my life to shed tears for, never really did being an outcast & the black sheep, so this probably hits me harder than most...these bands were my family....Jeff Hanneman, R.I.P.
May 08, 2013
RIP Thanks for all
May 08, 2013
In Memoriam, Jeff. You will never be forgotten brother! Slayer helped get through so many moments in life.

May 05, 2013
To Jeff's parents and family:
Everyone speaks of Jeff in regard to his fame. I remember him as a California teen who during our family reunion in Wisconsin ran around outside with me and caught fireflies. Allowing him to drive my Pinto without his drivers license still makes me smile. Fame came later, who knew the boy with the rainbow shirt would someday be considered a legend! To me you were just fun to be around..

Jeff, I'm an 18 year old kid. I've been into Slayer since elementary school. You're the main reason I play guitar. I based my entire style on yours. I even use the same picks and strings that you used. It breaks my heart that you passed away. You were such a big part of my life. I thought you were getting better, and I cried when I heard you passed. I could not believe it apart of me feels gone since I heard of your passing. Anything I accomplish will be dedicated to you. I always felt you were one of the most underrated guitarists of your time, you wrote so many thrash metal classics and they will always be remembered. Rest In Peace Jeff, my condolences go out to your family and too Slayer.

Mr. Hanneman will be truly missed by the multitudes of adoring fans, such as myself, and sincere condolances to his family and friends.

One can only imagine the sorrow remaining left by his absence. All hail Jeff Hanneman.

R.I.P brother. you are at ease now.
May 04, 2013
Hello. I was searching for such book. I needed it. Slayer holds special place in my heart, it's like grandparents or something... You know what I mean. That little-big thing, a kind of support that you can appreciate only after a loss. I wanted to share with you guys one thought, because in such moments Kurt Vonnegut comes to my mind. In Slaughterhouse-Five he wrote about a man kidnapped by aliens. And these aliens couldn't understand how we, people, can live with past, how we can concentrate on death and loss. How we can cry over our friends who passed away. These aliens could choose the moment that they want to live in. We can't. But we can remember all happy, beautiful moments spent together. We shouldn't say ‘goodbye'. Just ‘you will be always with me'. Always.
P.S. I want to express my deepest condolences to Jeff's friends and family. And to you guys – loyal fans who were given the best gift. The part of Jeff Hanneman.
May 04, 2013
Kathy, so sorry to learn the news about Jeff. May you seek comfort in prayer at this sorrowful time. 1 Peter 5:6, 7
