Slayer - Kerry King Mourning Guitar Tech

Slayer star Kerry King has paid tribute to his longtime guitar technician, who died on Saturday (31Mar12).
Armand Crump's unexpected death shocked King, and he released a moving statement on Sunday (01Apr12) remembering his friend.
He says, "Holy s**t. Never thought I'd be writing this. The world lost a great man yesterday. It was an incredibly rough day for me, I can't imagine what it was like for his family and (Crump's longtime girlfriend) Cassie. Needless to say, no one saw this coming.
"I thought I had a great guitar tech until the day I retire. Life is short. Enjoy what you have while you have it. I was one of the few lucky ones. I saw him Friday, played him some new Slayer and watched him bang his head and play air guitar.
"What a great dude!! I even got what may have been his last man hug. Love ya, buddy."
