Slayer rocker Jeff Hanneman has been forced to pull out of their upcoming tour after being hospitalized with necrotizing fasciitis.
Jeff Hanneman is suffering from a flesh-eating disease called necrotizing fasciitis, a bacterial virus that attacks skin, fat, and body tissue.
Sources report that Hanneman became sick after being bitten by a spider. He is scheduled for surgery to remove an area on his right arm to treat the disease.
In a statement issued, Slayer frontman Tom Araya says, “Jeff is our brother, we’ve all been friends and together as a band for almost 30 years. We just want him to recover as soon as possible.”
