Drummer Steve “Thee Slayer Hippy” Hanford – best known for his time in Poison Idea, Fetish, Mayhem (US), The Hell Candidates and other bands – has sadly passed away at the age of 50, confirms his fiancee on social media. Steven died yesterday (5/21) of a heart attack, and a GoFundME page has been created to help pay for funeral expenses.
