Slayer guitarist, Jeff Hanneman, is diagnosed with a flesh-eating disease.
Hanneman has what is technically called necrotizing fasciitis– a disease that destroys the skin layer by layer and then infiltrates the body’s fat and tissue. Doctors believed it was caused by a spider bite. He will soon have the infected area removed from his right arm in surgery and will hopefully return to the band soon.
Until then, Slayer will be touring will a fill-in guitarist, whom is yet to be announced.
