"A city in Poland has saluted the late Jeff Hanneman by naming a traffic circle after the Slayer guitarist. As metal fan forum Lambgoat notes, a roundabout in Jaworzno, Poland will be called "Jeff Hanneman's Circle Pit" for a full year. The tribute comes at the demand of ART-COM Ltd., a company that, aside from being run by Slayer worshippers, also won an auction to rename the traffic circle and become its "symbolic owner" for 12 months; the auction was part of Poland's annual Grand Finale charity event, organized by the nonprofit Grand Orchestra of Christmas Charity.

Hanneman passed away in May 2013 at the age of 49, succumbing to alcohol-related cirrhosis of the liver. The dedication in Poland carries some extra heft given the timing: Hanneman would have turned 50 on January 31, and on Janaury 26, the Recording Academy snubbed the thrash metal icon during the Grammys' annual "In Memoriam" tribute."

A little weird but Jeff deserves any/all recognition. I hadn`t seen him since the early 90`s but a really nice guy and he is missed.
We used to talk Raiders football a lot.
