Slayer's Kerry King Thought Jeff Henneman Had Cheated Death (Week In Review)
He's remembered in the title track of upcoming Slayer album Repentless, while his song Piano Wire also features on their first record without him. King tells the Illinois Entertainer: "He had literally cheated death when he had that arm injury. The doctor told him, 'First I'm going to try to save your life.' We didn't know if he was going to live.
"He got out of the hospital and he lived clean for a while. I'm like, 'Dude, you just cheated death - you got another shot and doing this all over again. Let's get you back on board playing some shows.'"
He continues: "I knew when he went into the hospital that last time, it was bad. I didn't think he was going to come out of that particular episode, but I didn't think it was going to be that quick." Read more - here.
