The metal community is still in shock regarding the untimely passing of Slayer's Jeff Hanneman. He passed away on May 2 at the age of 49; an age we might have thought was old when we were 19 - but now as adults we realize just how young 49 is, and how big of a shame it is to lose someone so talented, so early.
The arrangements have now been made for Hanneman's memorial celebration. Taking place on Thursday, May 23 at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles; it will run from 3:30 - 7:30 P.M.
The Memorial Celebration will be free and open to the public on a first-come, first-in basis subject to the venue's capacity. All ages are welcome.
