Could Spider Bite Be Responsible For Jeff Hanneman’s Death?
Jeff Hanneman, guitarist and founding member of metal band Slayer, died at age 49 yesterday morning of liver failure at a Los Angeles hospital .
The cause of death is still a mystery… although the consensus points to excessive drinking, Hannerman had been slowly recovering from what was believed to be a spider bite that nearly cost him his arm. Slayer spokeswoman Heidi Robinson-Fitzgerald said it’s believed the spider bite contributed to the failure of Hanneman’s liver.
Hanneman co-founded the thrash metal pioneers in Huntington Beach, Calif., in 1982. “The music industry has lost a true trailblazer, and our deepest sympathies go out to his family, his bandmates, and fans around the world who mourn his untimely passing,” said Neil Portnow, president and CEO of the Recording Academy, in a statement. “Jeff Hanneman will always be a metal god,” rocker Andrew WK tweeted.
Kris Kross’ Chris Kelly Dead At 34
It’s a sad day in music today as news that Chris Kelly died Wednesday surfaced online.
Kelly, better known as half of the 90′s rap duo Kris Kross, was pronounced dead “at an Atlanta hospital on Wednesday [after] an apparent drug overdose at his home, authorities said. … ‘It appears it may have been a possible drug overdose,’ said Cpl. Kay Lester, a spokeswoman for the Fulton County police.”
Kris Kross, who’s ‘thing’ was wearing clothes backwards, scored a big hit with “Jump” in 1992. After that, as the AP says, “they toured with Michael Jackson, appeared on TV shows, and even had their own video game. [But] the group was never able to match the tremendous success of their first song, though they had other hits like ‘Warm It Up,’ and ‘Tonite’s tha Night.’ ”
