We have some very sad news to report, Slayer just announced that founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed away at 11am this morning in a Los Angeles hospital due to liver failure.

Slayer posted the following on their Facebook page moments ago:

Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11AM this morning near his Southern California home. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed.

Hanneman has been out of Slayer since suffering a spider bite and contracting necrotizing fasciitis in February of 2011.

Our deepest condolences to his friends and family.
