RIP: Steve Foley, Replacements drummer

From an article in The Star Tribune:

He was only in the band for its final year (1990-91), but the Replacements' replacement drummer Steve Foley told biographer Jim Walsh, "It will always be a treasure in my mind."

"Some days I walk down the street and go, ‘God, I was in that [expletive] band?’ Unbelievable. It is."

Foley, 49, died over the weekend of an apparent accidental drug overdose, said his sister, Colleen Foley. He was found at home in Minneapolis by some co-workers Monday when he did not show up for his job as a car salesman.
