STEVE FOLEY, onetime replacement drummer for, ironically enough, the renown '80s Alternative band THE REPLACEMENTS, died during the weekend of AUGUST 23rd in MINNEAPOLIS. He was 49.
According to various reports in local MINNEAPOLIS media, FOLEY died after accidentally overdosing on prescription medication. In 1990, he succeeded drummer CHRIS MARS in the waning days of the band, appearing in one REPLACEMENTS video, "When It Began."
