Replacement Replacement Dies at Age 49

Over the 8/23 weekend, drummer and car salesman Steve Foley died. Although he spent 22 minutes as the Replacements’ drummer, he was in the band long enough to appear in this video, both in person and in claymation. Betcha Mr. Mars was finally jealous, at least a little.

Despite his short tenure, Mr. Foley gifted All Over But The Shouting with some fascinating firsthand tales of the Replacements’ less often-covered final days.

He also played their final gig. And now his own.
