Slayer's Kerry King Doesn't Regret 'Moment Of Noise' For Hanneman
But he believes he did the best he could to follow his late colleague's wishes - and he doesn't regret his actions. King tells Spotify Metal Talks: "I was scheduled to present an award with Zakk Wylde. I had a hard time just thinking about, 'Do I do this? Do I not do this? I don't know how to act.' And I said, 'I can't stand up Zakk Wylde. Jeff would want me to be at the show - just do it.'"

I wanted to express what I thought Jeff would be stoked about. Jeff wouldn't want a moment of silence, by no means. He wouldn't be like that at all." Read more here.
