McKinnie deal with Ravens worth almost $7 million

I think this is a pretty good signing. He’s shown he can play when properly motivated, and hopefully he’s motivated.

Jeff Hanneman 1964-2013

Yesterday was a very sad day for those of us who love heavy music, as Jeff Hanneman, guitarist and co-founder of Slayer died at 49 of liver failure, possibly related to a spider bite and resulting necrotizing fasciitis.

Hanneman had a great interest in WWII history because his grandfather, a German, fought for the US.  Slayer has been accused of being Satanists and Nazi sympathizers because he explored this interest in his lyrics – when asked about Angel of Death, a song about Josef Mengele, he said: “Nothing I put in the lyrics says he’s a bad man.  Isn’t that obvious?  I shouldn’t have to tell you that.”

I don’t know how many times I saw Slayer, but it’s probably more than any other band.  Nothing compares.  Slayer has been part of my soundtrack for more than 25 years, and this is a pretty big loss.  They have been touring with Gary Holt (Exodus) filling in, I wonder if they continue.

 

A couple of Hanneman tunes that stand out:

And possibly my favorite Slayer song:
