Former L.A. GUNS and W.A.S.P. drummer Steve Riley has died at the age of 67.
The news of Riley‘s death was first reported by Metal Sludge and was confirmed by his longtime friend Jason Green, who shared a new video on his Waste Some Time With Jason Green YouTube channel in which he said that Green had suffered from various health issues prior to his passing.
A source close to Riley told Metal Sludge that the drummer died yesterday (Thursday, October 26) after he had been recently hospitalized. He had also been using a cane to walk in recent months.
After leaving W.A.S.P. in 1987, Riley joined L.A. GUNS and played on the band’s most commercially successful albums.
