Video: PHILIP ANSELMO, LEMMY, ROB ZOMBIE, COREY TAYLOR Pay Tribute To JEFF HANNEMAN

Last night (Thursday, May 2) on the "black carpet" at the fifth annual Revolver Golden Gods award show presented by Epiphone at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California, Philip Anselmo (DOWN, PANTERA), Lemmy Kilmister (MOTÖRHEAD), Rob Zombie, Corey Taylor (STONE SOUR, SLIPKNOT), Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW), Alexi Laiho (CHILDREN OF BODOM), Chris Jericho (FOZZY) and Evan Seinfeld (BIOHAZARD) celebrated the life of SLAYER guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who passed away yesterday at the age of 49. Check out two separate video reports from Fuse and Horns Up Rocks!

Hanneman died at about 11 a.m. yesterday (Thursday, May 2) near his Southern California home. He was in an area hospital when he suffered liver failure.

Hanneman had been on hiatus from SLAYER since early 2011, when he contracted necrotizing fasciitis, a flesh-eating disease that doctors believed might have been caused by a spider bite. Hanneman almost lost his arm, and was briefly placed in a medically induced coma. After a series of skin grafts, he had been working on his physical rehabilitation. He is survived by his wife Kathy, his sister Kathy and his brothers Michael and Larry.
