Former L.A. Guns drummer, Steve Riley passed away at the age of 67 on October 24th after “battling a severe case of pneumonia for several weeks”. His passing was announced by his family in a statement.
L.A. Guns’ Phil Lewis took on his social page media and also issued a statement about Riley’s passing, sharing:
”Very shocked to hear about Steve Riley’s passing today. He was a good guy and an excellent drummer. We toured the world together many times and countless adventures both good and bad. Unfortunately, we were never truly friends in 30 years I never once visited his house and apart from band stuff we never hung out or went to dinner together. I think he valued his privacy and kept work and family very much separate.
“My condolences to his wife of over 40 years Mary Louise and son Cole.
“Journey on mate.”
