Slayer’s Jeff Hanneman Snubbed During Grammy ‘In Memoriam’ Tribute Read More: Slayer's Jeff Hanneman Snubbed During Grammy 'In Memoriam' Tribute
 
Any tribute that tries to be as comprehensive as the Grammy Awards’ annual ‘In Memoriam’ segment is bound to leave a few people out. But when the Recording Academy aired its remembrance of the musicians we lost in 2013, rock fans noticed one particularly glaring omission: Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman.
Hanneman’s death last May sent shockwaves through the music world, and although even the most passionate fan understands that someone is always going to get snubbed by these things, it still came as something of a shock to see that the Academy could forget such an influential and respected musician.
Angry fans took to Twitter and Facebook to vent their frustration following the segment — which also left out a number of other rock artists who passed away during 2013, including former Iron Maiden drummer Clive Burr, Vixen founder Jan Kuehnemund and former Devo drummer Alan Myers.

Hanneman has 2 Grammys, gets left off the list but some douche canoe from Glee offs himself and gets paid homage to.

Is there no integrity left?

Yet another reason why I don't watch the Grammy Awards.

Did everyone forget about his Jethro Tull comments?

Just to clarify, his comments were directed at the academy, not Jethro Tull, IIRC.

Also didn't Metallica say something similar on stage at the awards when they finally won?

Exactly, which is why he was dropped I'm sure. I'm a huge Slayer fan but the academy runs their own ship and really has no meaning to me personally.

Metallica is Metallica, they can do no wrong in the academy's eyes.

I am a Slayer fan. Jeff's death did, and still does, suck. When Metallica was dissed over Jethro Tull; I never watched another Grammy show. Now, was Metallica the best Metal band that year? Several people have different opinions. But "Justice" still kicks ass to this day and is the best concert I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot. The Pantera's and Slayer's of the metal world have always been after thought of an after thought in the main stream music world. I don't even know if the Grammy's acknowledged "DimeBag" the year he was murdered.

I think if you could ask Jeff how he feels about the Grammay snub, he would say, "I'm remembered by those who matter."

I have been a Metal fan since the first time I heard Motley Crue's "Too Fast for Love" in 1981, Then, I really feel in love with Metal when I heard the Number of the Beast album. Now, I have always been a Sabbath and Van Halen fan in my childhood. My dad introduced me to Sabbath and Ozzy. And yes, even Jethro Tull. Metal gave me something musically that "POP" music and "Top 40 never did. Real Music.

Ozzy, Maiden, Crue, Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Pantera, TEST-A-MENT, Korn, 1st three Slipknot albums; were and still are to this day, regulars on my play list. My kids get a kick watching me play drums and hitting the "driving" beats of the double bass drums while I cut my grass. Are they fans themselves? No, but I do introduce them to the music. I get them to focus on each instrament. To hear just how good these guys really are at what they do.

I always tell my kids, there is no "Oldies" radio channels for great rap artist. (Not that I'm talking bad about rap. The orginal rappers up through til the late 80's are what set the foundation for what should have been. Not the 80% of the crap thats out there now being called hip-hop and rap. Yes, I'm a huge fan of the Beastie Boys, but that's for another story.) I can't stand the stuff that is being called music these days. Mixes and taking sample riffs from other bands to make "music", using a computer to get drum beats; isn't making music.

So as far as remembering Jeff Hanneman; I do. Everytime I listen to ANGEL OF DEATH!!! I think that puts a little smile on his face.

The very moment I start to worry about who/what/when/ etc as it relates to the Grammys...well...that's when I'll know it's time for me to stop listening.

But the problem I see is the Grammys influencing record companies to promote bands that are crap and ignore real talent.
Unfortunately I think Grammy awards still dictate the direction of mainstream music. The grunge movement of the 90's is the exception to the rule.

There's always SOME thing influencing the music 'business'. And I do agree that the Grammy awards definitely DO influence pop music, and surely the cream does rise to the top.

I'm a music snob. Crap music can entertain, but it has no soul, no spirit, it isn't artful, therefore it doesn't last. I guess I just recognize what the Grammy awards really are, so I'm not offended by any 'snub' and I'm not overly joyed when someone I enjoy is awarded.

I know what I like. I'm a critical listener and I have a musical background, so I know what's good and I'm satisfied with that. I'm certainly not looking for the Grammy awards to validate any thing.
