Nope.

Views are independent of expectation though.

That's like saying "why is everyone up in arms about Ronnie James Dio dying, and no one seems to care about the guy from Suicide Silence."... Because one is a legend and the other is NOT.
You are so metal.

I don't like Slipknot (I can appreciate Stone Stour), but one of my best friends is a big fan, and he's nearly 30, can you believe that?

Kerry is an asshole. Tom I don't know, but it's a shame he wasn't at the memorial.

I don't want to say I have more respect for Tom for not showing up, but I can absolutely understand why some publicity 'memorial service' isn't how he wants to grieve. King, though... I'm sure the asshole was just trying to put on 'the correct' appearance. I know people like that. I haven't watched the video of his speech but did his emotion seem at all genuine?

Then again, we don't even know if the members of Slayer even like each other that much at this point but I assume if that was the case with Tom, that he didn't really care for Jeff, he would've shown up at the service.

Yes the official store is selling the shirt from the memorial

http://store.slayer.net/index.php/je...n-tribute.html


I don't really have a problem with them selling this, I will try and get one as soon as they are in stock; It is a nice design, and if you think it is classless, then don't buy it that your choice and I respect that

EDIT: Slayerized just posted this, 5 (so far) designs based of songs Jeff wrote; pretty neat http://www.southofhanneman.com/

I'm 27 and still a fan. Have many friends and family the same age and older who are still fans. Since when does age matter in liking metal?

That's pretty cool. I might get one of this in memoriam of Jeff.

It doesn't matter, but I was trying to prove that he shouldn't act like an ass for someone liking a certain band.

Tom was apparently absent due to an upcoming surgery.

Also, I don't know if anyone mentioned it yet, but a pit broke out when "Raining Blood" played during the memorial video.
