Steve Harwell is experiencing the last chapter of his life -- this after battling medical complications for years -- and his family is saying their goodbyes ... TMZ has learned.

A manager for the Smash Mouth lead singer tells us Steve has been struggling with alcohol abuse throughout his life -- and now, he's reached the final stage of liver failure ... for which he'd, up until recently, been receiving treatment at a hospital.

Steve is only 56 years old.

I've heard the name, but I am not really all that familiar with the music. However, 56 is too young, such a shame.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Clearly, he's no All-Star.

Oh, Smash Mouth was all over the radio in the late 90s. I always liked that surfy-spacey sound.

I never heard of them until I saw them in a movie, a really bad remake of "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad World" that was written by the guy who came up with "Monk" for TV. I believe the movie was called "Rat Race" or something similar.


Lots of stars in it but a total pass, unless you're bored and it's free on a streaming channel . Some really crude humor

I really enjoyed "Monk", and saw Rat Race years ago--just recall a couple of plot basics, and not much more.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

He's officially dead now, according to the Daily Mail

Quote
... Although his official cause of death has not been confirmed, Hayes noted on Sunday he was in the final stages of liver failure when he was moved to hospice care.   ...

His manager told the New York Post at the time that the singer was diagnosed with Wenicke encephalopathy, a condition that impacts motor skills and brain functionality.

He also reportedly suffered from cardiomyopathy, where weak heart muscles results in deteriorated speech and memory. ...

The first time I saw it, I laughed my tushie off.  :silly:

Saw it again a year or so ago on either Netflix, Hulu or Prime. It didn't seem as funny, but it was perfect for a rainy day. I guess maybe my humor might be changing once I hit the last big birthday.  888cryingkitty

It did have quite a stellar cast, though.

@mountaineer

I am no doctor and know nothing  about the man,his life,or his music,but it sure sounds to me like he  caught  a  break when he died.

There is a limit to how much ANYONE should suffer if they have only abused themselves. More suffering should be reserved for people like Mao,Stalin,or Hitler.
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!
