Why would Kerry and Tom hang it up now? Why kill the cash cow. This has been their gig for the last 30 years. Nothing has changed from the band's perspective. It's still Kerry, Tom and a replacement guitarist and drummer. Would Dave returning make it more credible/palatable? Sure. But I don't think they care. Bands carry on these days. It's not like Zeppelin hanging it up when Bonham died anymore.

If they can get Dave back, and find a young guitarist that's enthusiastic and can revitalize the band, then I think they could totally carry on. Priest gave their best live shows since the fricken Ram It Down tour thanks to Richie Faulkner, and Slayer has the potential for something similar to happen if they find fresh blood.

Like it or not, Gary Holt has single handedly made Slayer a better live unit than they've been in years, but he should be with Exodus right now. Not to mention he has too much history with Slayer to ever actually offer an opinion on new stuff. If Kerry doesn't get a new sparring partner than can actually light a fire under the band's ass and inspire them to write some amazing material, Slayer are gonna be really depressing to watch over the next few years.

Slayer just announced it was alcohol related cirrhosis and that he wasn't on any transplant list.

Yep. Full statement:

"We've just learned that the official cause of Jeff's death was alcohol related cirrhosis. While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent necrotizing fasciitis infection that devastated his well-being, Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life. Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time prior to that. In fact, by all accounts, it appeared that he had been improving – he was excited and looking forward to working on a new record."

I'll be really disappointed if they don't hang it up now. I'm prepared to be disappointed, however.

Its cause 1/4 of band dying > 1/9 of a band dying.

And if you're calling the band a cash cow, that's exactly why they shouldn't go on. I'll be going out of my way not to see Slayer.
