no need for bitterness. This is a messed up guy who had it too soft for too many years. Taking the so called easy way is often a road way filled with banana peels.

This is Stevens mother and YES I WILL be able to help him this time!

He has a bad back from years of drumming and needed the pills to help him make his music for the world to hear.

Im sorry you just HATE MUSIC!!!

I've known Steve since I was 11 and I'm really not suprised. He had been hanging out at our pad during this time and pulled a fast one on some friends of our who were just trying to help him out. We suspected he was up to something involving Walgreens pharmacy.Robbing the place w/ a knife is a little more than any of us thought. Truely a sad time and I hope this is wake up call to clean up. The last day I saw him(@ 3 weeks ago) we had an excellent evening hanging out, listening to Beck and he even jammed our house kit w/ me on bass. I hope he grows up... John Duffy- Wehrmacht

Fuck you all! Slayer Hippy rules! I've been tempted to rob the Walgreens pharms myself.
If Mr. Hippy was involved in said crime, he must of had a good reason.
Thee Slayer Hippy always has a good reason.

To Steve's mom;
Steve probably does not have a "bad back from years of drumming". I know a LOT of drummers that don't have to depend on pain pills "just to make music". Steve is probably in a lot of pain (both physically and emotionally) because he has been doing hard drugs since high school. I went on a date with him once his senior year, and in the middle of it he started licking a spoon he had taken out of his pocket. Now that is a kid with some problems! If you really want to help him, you should start by not making excuses for him an actually trying to get him clean. Steve is an awesomely talented man, and he was always nice to me. I would be very sad to see him die a rock star's death. I really hope that you, and anyone else who cares about him and reads this, will start giving him the care, support, and help that he needs!

I am so sad hear about Steve. I am a friend from LA (probably his only one!) and I haven't heard from him in a while so I decided to google him and this is what i found.

Yes as much as he is a saint and god and loved by his mother none of you have been able to save him. This is Steve's mess that only Steve can clean up. Hopefully in jail he will have time to get well. Personally I think his health is in jeopardy being in jail and I hope it is not too late to reverse the damage.

I love Steve but he is a very sick stupid and stubborn man!!!

My name is phill and i lived with him when said crime was commited. I love and care about him alot. Hopefully this mess will save his life. I miss you slayer.

i`m jamie. phill and i lived with steve last summer as he began to near the bottom of his downward spiral and suddenly felt the urge try out a slayerhippy rendition of drugstore cowboy in what i feel was an attempt to finally reach that elusive depth, bang maximus, even if it ended up being only six feet deep! phill n i had already been to two very special peoples funerals that summer and we were certain steve would be next. i'm so happy we were proven wrong! i think he wanted to die but didn't get it. he got to live, and thats what he deserved! 7 years in prison is too harsh for what he did but way better than 21 years he was facing! phill n i got the chance to know the real slayerhippy. the one thats almost always obscured by the oblivionaut that usually steals his skin and trades admiration for animosity. a big, easy target for a $1000 snitch reward! ain't that right, andrew?! i love and miss you slayer! maybe i'll get clean like you n phill before i sleep thru another trip around the sun!

We used to do dope and sound together in the 90's and this is Opiat use gone too long! Get clean my nice gay soundman.

I knew Steve back in his teens. He really was a sweet-hearted kid. He was already a great drummer at 15 and could jam with us older musicians with ease. I haven't spoken with him in about 20 years, but I'd heard many rumors of his drug use and burning his friends. I'm sad to hear about his downward spiral, but I hope he'll get some help if he wants to straighten his life out. Good luck, Slayer!

Wow. He was the worlds best drummer back in the early 90s. Still can not believe this!

Oh, and one thing's for sure: you will never ever get back problems from drumming all day long :-)

I have had some very hilarious, fairly sober times with Steve. Many card games. He was very kind, quick as a whip, and so incredibly sweet to me. I miss him and hope someday we can be winking at each other again. Hope the forced break can help him. I'll never forget the blue leather jacket.
