Thrash metal veterans Slayer have announced that Exodus' Gary Holt will be joining the band as its new temporary replacement for a hospitalized Jeff Hanneman. The band commented on Jeff Hanneman's condition by saying:
"Jeff is our brother, we've all been friends and together as a band for almost 30 years so we just want him to completely recover as soon as possible. After everything that happened last year we all agreed that we just can't let our fans down again. Jeff is totally on board with this decision, so we will tour as planned. At this point, we can't pinpoint exactly what day he'll be back, but he'll be back as soon as he possibly can. And we can't wait for Jeff to get better and get his ass back on the road."
Hanneman underwent emergency surgery on his right arm late last month after contracting a serious infection. He is now recuperating at home and is expected to make a full recovery. He will return to the Slayer line-up as soon as he has fully recovered.
