The music world lost another truly revolutionary and ground breaking talent and artist. Talents like Jeff are rare!! Jeff made playing the guitar lightning fast seem so easy and effortless!!! I just hope his family can recover from Jeff's loss equally as fast.

As a fan, I want to thank Jeff, and the rest of the guys in SLAYER, for being so unapologetically SLAYER!!! Heavy metal music, and thrash metal in particular, just would not be the same without you guys!!! \m/

Whether you like Slayer or not, the man was a groundbreaker. And a great talent. Thrash, indeed all metal lost a great.

NOOOOOO!!!!! Hard to see my laptop screen through my tears of sadness; I'm going for a long walk with my iPod and going to listen to the album "Reign in Blood a few times, greatest thrash album EVER! Very sad day for headbangers everywhere.
