Dave Lombardo posts personal tribute to Jeff Hanneman

Ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo has posted a short personal tribute to the late Jeff Hanneman on his official Facebook page.

Read his post below:

This picture was taken at the Troubadour in Hollywood around 1982. Jeff was the guy that shaved his head and shared the music he was so inspired by. I enjoyed Dead Kennedy’s, Circle Jerks, Black Flag and the Germs with him. My drumming was getting faster and Jeff was writing original songs with a Punk attitude. The fusion of Heavy Metal and Punk took over Slayers early mediocre style, hence a new force was born. Thank you Jeff for your inspiring discovery of Punk rock that has continued to shape my personal drumming style.
