Slayer Says They Will Carry On For Jeff Hanneman


Kerry King, guitarist for Slayer, says that the band will carry on following the sudden death of guitarist and co-founder, Jeff Hanneman. The band has since recruited Gary Holt (Exodus) to replace the departed axeman.

King, who spoke with Entertainment Daily News, said that the band will always have a place for Hanneman:

"Jeff is going to be in everybody's thoughts for a long time. 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."

Slayer is headed out on the road this summer and fall, playing 35 dates including headline shows, as well as a number of major summer festivals in Europe, Eastern Europe and South America.

Paul Bostaph, the band's drummer from 1992-2001, will be back behind the kit on the tour.
