Heavy Metal Guitarist Has Flesh-Eating Disease

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.”

Slayer will have to head out on tour using a guest guitarist in Hanneman’s place while he recuperates.
