Sigh...

"Jeff was always a drinker," former SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo tells the publication for its August 2013 issue. "He always had a Coors Light tall can in his hand. Always."

"Jeff and I always drank," SLAYER guitarist Kerry King adds. "They called Steven Tyler and Joe Perry the Toxic Twins. We were the Drunk Brothers." He laughs. "The difference being that I don't wake up in the morning and need a beer. Jeff didn't know how not to drink."

"I would express my concern [about his alcohol intake], and he would back off for a few months — but then he would go right back to drinking," says Kathryn Hanneman, Jeff's wife of 24 years. "A few years before his dad died in 2008, I did notice that Jeff was relying on alcohol to start off his day. But I couldn't say much at that point, because I just knew we'd wind up in a verbal confrontation about it. And I'm not going to say I didn't drink with him — I did drink with him, sometimes quite heavily. I figured if l couldn't beat him, join him. But eventually I realized that I couldn't go on like that, and that if l stopped, I might be able to help him get away from it too. But I couldn't. He just relied on it too much to get him through the day."

Hanneman's SLAYER bandmates also spoke about the arthritic condition that he had been battling for many years and that was progressively worsening to the point of interfering with his playing. "His ability to play was slowly deteriorating," SLAYER frontman Tom Araya says, "but he didn't let anybody know that. We could just tell that things were going wrong. It was becoming hard to get stuff out of him. He was very proud and didn't want to make anyone worry about anything. Jeff would show up and play, and he didn't want anyone to know or worry about what else was going on with him. He tried to be really strong and sometimes that can weigh you down."

"You would notice it in his hands and a little bit in his walk," Lombardo says. "It seemed like He was struggling with his playing — it wasn't fuid. You could hear it in the leads. His playing just wasn't as tight as it could have been."

Just read that same article you did 300%; I knew something wasn't right when I listened to the Big 4 CD and heard how sloppy his solos were, best example being Seasons from that show. I chalked it up as just maybe being lazy and maybe not practicing. But now seeing how proud he was and not exposing the problems with his hands, it makes sense now, and in a small way cool that he tried his best to stick with it and play the music he loved even though his ability went down.

If anyone is interested Slayerized has a long article highlighting the Guitar World piece, including bits from Jeff's wife; if you're a long time Slayer fan like myself, it got to be a tough read

"I was home with my family when I found out he had died. The phone rang and my wife answered it, and she had this look of dread on her face. She handed me the phone and didn't say anything, and it was our manager, Rick Sales, and he told me. I hung up the phone and went to my room and I cried." - Tom Araya

Fuck man.....more and more I think Slayer needs to do one huge farewell tour in honor of Jeff, play all the classics plus some not-as-much played songs that Jeff wrote (213!!!) and call it done. Even if Jeff had been writing music while recovering I doubt he was able to really do any guitar parts and no one could do justice to try and copy that writing, even Gray Holt. Look I know Kerry wants to carry on, but he can start a new band if he wants, Tom doesn't seem too keen on Slayer moving without Jeff.....Goddamn it

I said it before and I'll say it again:

finish the tour dates they already have

do one more tour with Dave back and with Gary on guitar

then hang it up.
