Video: Jeff Hanneman Memorial Celebration

  • Axl Rosenberg


The memorial celebration in honor of late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman took place yesterday at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, MetalSucks wasn’t able to send a correspondent to the event… but, of course, fans filmed many of the highlights of their phones, so we now have a lot of video, which The PRP has helpfully collected. Below, watch testimonials in Hanneman’s honor from his Slayer bandmate Kerry King, Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, System of a Down’s Shavo Odadjian, Metal Blade Records (Slayer’s first label) founder Brian Slagel, Dino Paredes from American Recordings (Slayer’s longtime label), and Marshall Amplification’s Nick Bowcott, plus a video memorial, as well as pretty much the most touchingly metal “send off” I’ve ever seen (hint: MOSHING!). R.I.P., Jeff… we can never replace you, dude.
