Slayer Won't Record Without Jeff Hanneman

(Rock News Desk) Slayer will give Jeff Hanneman all the time he needs to recover from an attack of necrotising fasciitis in his arm and have vowed not to start work on a new album until he's ready.

The guitarist looks likely to continue missing tour dates after a suspected spider bite led to him requiring skin grafts and muscle rehabilitation, a process which is still continuing.

He made a surprise appearance during the Big 4 thrash concert in California in April, but only played a handful of tracks. He's been replaced on tour by Exodus guitarist Gary Holt then Cannibal Corpse axeman Pat O'Brian. Slayer frontman Tom Araya tells Billboard: "It was a big deal for him to play in California it was a big deal for us too. We thought it would be a nice surprise for everybody, and also make them aware he's still there. more on this story
