Slayer - Kerry King Honours Jeff Hanneman At Revolver Golden Gods

Slayer star Kerry King honoured his late bandmate Jeff Hanneman at the 2013 Revolver Golden Gods ceremony by calling for a "moment of noise" in tribute to the tragic rocker.

Slayer star Hanneman, 49, passed away after suffering liver failure, and his death on Thursday (02May13) came just hours before the most famous faces of rock and metal gathered in Los Angeles for the annual awards show.

The event became a tribute to the lost rocker, with Anthrax playing Slayer's hit Raining Blood in his memory, while Hanneman's longtime bandmate King took to the stage to present an award and told the crowd of his pain.

King told the audience not to take part in a minute's silence for his friend, and ordered them to make as much noise as possible instead, saying, "Jeff Hanneman doesn't want a moment of silence. He was in f**king Slayer. He wants a moment of noise!"

Winners at the ceremony included Deftones, who won the Album Of The Year prize for Koi No Yokan, Black Veil Brides, who took Song of the Year for In The End, and Tenacious D (Comeback of the Year).

Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister took the Paul Gray Best Bassist trophy, and Corey Taylor was named Best Vocalist.

Taylor's band Slipknot, who won the Best Live Band prize, teamed with the frontman's other group Stone Sour to perform a Black Sabbath cover, while other performers included The Dillinger Escape Plan, Danzig, and Five Finger Death Punch, who rocked out with Rob Zombie and Judas Priest star Rob Halford.
