Slayer is devastated to inform that their bandmate and brother, Jeff Hanneman, passed away at about 11AM this morning near his Southern California home. Hanneman was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry, and will be sorely missed.

Damn it, more and more awesome metal people die, so sad.

Only just saw about this myself. Totally gutted. Saw Slayer live several times and they were excellent every time, and 'Reign In Blood' is just an undisputed all-time rock/metal classic - up there with 'Master Of Puppets', 'Number Of The Beast', 'Screaming For Vengeance', the Van Halen debut and the first four Sabbath albums.
RIP, Jeff, and thanks for all the fucking awesome music.
I think Tawa is a temporal entity that exists outside of the hobby/modeling timeline. Essentially, he's the Heresy Online equivalent of a Time Lord... which is kinda hilarious and frightening all at the same time.
