Re: An open letter to Slayer fans around the world:

Well, in this open letter, Slayer have done their best to both reassure fans about the health of guitarist Jeff Hanneman, while confirming that Jeff has endured alot of pain and frustration during his past and ongoing rehabilitation on his arm. Slayer have done the right thing by keeping their fans well updated on Jeff's ongoing progress. It's ''big'' of Slayer to collectively thank Gary Holt for ''standing in'' for Jeff as he recovers. Proof again, that Slayer is one ''class act''!
