Steve "Thee Slayer Hippy" Hanford, primarily known for his time in hardcore punk band Poison Idea, passed away this morning, reportedly of a heart attack. Hanford was a member of Poison Idea from 1987 until 1993. Most recently, he performed with Fetish and also served as touring drummer for The Accüsed A.D.. Fetish's label, Blackhouse Records, had the following to say:
"The world just lost a pretty amazing person today. Unreal. Steve's larger than life personality, let alone his drumming and producing work over the years was something of legend, unforgettable and historic to say the very least. "We at Blackhouse had the honor of putting out the new Fetish record just last year and he just jumped on board to take on touring duties with The Accused AD shortly after that as well. "Rest easy and in peace Mr. Hanford. You're going to be missed by so so many."
