Gary Holt from the thrash band Exodus will be Slayer's guest guitarist, temporary filling in for Jeff Hanneman who is currently recovering from surgery. Holt will immediately join Slayer for their five-date Australian Soundwave Festival tour that begins February 26th.
Hanneman underwent emergency surgery on his right arm late last month after contracting a serious infection, possibly caused by a spider bite. 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.
Here's to a speedy recovery for Hanneman.
