Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman isn't making it out on the road for the upcoming Big Four Tour due to his recent contraction of a rare flesh-eating diesease. So who will be replacing him? More than likely, Hanneman contracted the disease from a spider bite and will soon undergo surgery. Until then, Slayer will have to fill his shoes. The word is that the band will temporarily replace him with Gary Holt. Holt is from the band Exodus which formed in 1980 and previously toured with Slayer in 2005. Holt will be with Slayer through the Australian leg of the tour and remain with the band until Jeff's recovery.
