You may not have loved the music of Slayer as i did, but never was their a more socially concious band.. And when the rest of the big 4 were getting more and more commercial, Slayer got harder and harder. I always said about their music "Anger is ok if used constructively" and i always felt its what they did. In this sense there were no purer guitarists than the Jeff and Kerry, 110% connected to their sense of outrage about the things they saw as being bad in the world.

Very well said. I was "weened" on thrash and Jeff was one of my guys. Jeff and Kerry helped push the genre forward while influencing countless guitarists to play faster, louder and heavier. RIP Jeff, and thanks for everything.
