As long as we're sharing Slayer stories...

My first (and only) time seeing the complete Slayer was at my second concert ever (Mayhem Fest 2009) at the age of 13. I was going to go see Marilyn Manson with one of my sisters (she didn't live with me - long story), but she got grounded, so my mom took me since she wanted to see what kind of music I was into. Long story short, Slayer annihilated and changed my life, Manson sucked and I felt ripped off, and on the drive home, my mom told me that she thought Manson was a complete joke and that she felt more concerned about Slayer than anyone else in hindsight. I still remember exactly what she said after almost four years:

"You can go to these by yourself from now on. I don't want to be involved."



RIP Jeff. Thanks for helping change so many lives.

Weird. Strange how there's no mention of Jeff either.

I was looking the comments and one poster had this, and I am sure he/she did their homework

So when you break it down, surprisingly Kerry just edges out Jeff overall, but Jeff has still written or co-written the music to 19 more songs than Kerry.
It's amazing how much work Jeff did for the band and to think what Slayer would have been like without Jeff's songwriting/lyrics

I saw that too. I really believe that he's what elevated them from being a second or third rate thrash band to "#2" in the big four.
What that list doesn't tell you is that he's responsible for most of their best work.
Here's the top 10 songs played live
Raining Blood - Music JH, lyrics JH KK
Angel of Death - Music and lyrics JH
South of Heaven - Music JH, lyrics TA
War Ensemble - Music JH, Lyrics TA JH
Mandatory Suicide - Music JH KK, lyrics TA
Dead Skin Mask - Music JH, lyrics TA
Chemical Warface - JH KK
Hell Awaits - Music JH KK, lyrics KK
Seasons - Music JH, lyrics TA
Die By The Sword - Music and lyrics JH

Been so out of touch with this board and all things metal recently that I just now heard about this. Truly awful news. Sending positive thoughts to Jeff's family & loved ones.

I remember listening to Slayer when they first came out. No one anywhere ever had done anything like what they were doing, and collectively they pioneered extreme music as we know it today. One of the most important bands of all time. I was truly blessed to have seen them on tour for Reign in Blood, South of Heaven and Seasons in the Abyss. After a quarter of a century or so, those are still some of the largest and most energetic pits I have ever seen or been a part of, and some of the best and most intense shows in any genre, ever.

Thanks for the many fond memories, Jeff. Your work is the stuff of legend. RIP
