Slayer's Hanneman Tributes Ruined By Management?

(Classic Rock) Slayer frontman Tom Araya says the band's tributes to late guitarist Jeff Hanneman aren't high-profile enough and insists the fault lies with management.

Hanneman, who'd been off the road for three years due to health issues, died in May at the age of 49 as a result of liver damage through heavy drinking.

The band have continued to mark the absence of their fallen bandmate, but they believe they haven't done enough. Guitarist Kerry King tells Fuse: "Every show we've done since May, we've had his Hanneman guitar on stage; we've got the Hanneman backdrop for the last couple of tunes; there was a video that Tom put together that went over the last song or two when we were in South Africa."

Araya adds: "I wanted to do more – I was hoping to do more. But the nature of the business… the management gets involved in anything we do and they f**ked it up. I'm throwing them under the bus. It really upset me, because it would have been more than just that." more on this story
