Slayer's Jeff Hanneman snubbed by Grammy Awards

Every year, the Grammy Awards pay tribute to the musicians and industry folks who passed away during the previous year. Last night the "In Memoriam" segment featured a ton of deserving artists, but notably excluded was late Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman. It's rather pathetic that he wasn't honored; but his exclusion is particularly egregious considering Hannemann and his Slayer bandmates previously won two Grammy Awards. For what it's worth, former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr was also excluded from the tribute. Perhaps the Grammys thought it was sufficient to list both Hanneman and Burr on their website? Naw.

this is horseshit, one of the godfathers of metal, if you played metal guitar you wanted to be Jeff. Again the Grammy's alienate music fans.

Surprised? Honestly who cares what the people who vote on the awards think? Doesn't affect my music listening. Also please see list of winners. Enough said.

anonymous 1/28/2014 4:36:45 AM

Lord Infamous was surprisingly mentioned, probably because 3-6 got an Oscar a few years ago

anonymous 1/28/2014 12:10:23 PM

To be fair, Slayer sucks and is boring. And Hanneman was shitty and boring. I'm more upset about snubbing Maiden.
