Steve Foley, who was the Replacements’ final drummer–he played with the group on its last tour in 1990-91, replacing Chris Mars–died last weekend of an accidental prescription-medication overdose. I wasn’t a big fan of Jim Walsh’s 2007 oral history of the band, All Over But the Shouting, but Foley’s contributions to the story were affecting and thoughtful, and clear-eyed about the band’s legacy and his own role in it. Foley was 49. [Rolling Stone]
