I want to express my deepest sympathy to all of Mr. Mike Fowler's friends and family and am absolutely shocked at this very very disturbing news. I'm 54 years of age and have been playing the drums myself since age 7 + following Rock Music also since I was a little kid and I thought STEELHEART was the most AWESOME BAND I'd ever came across. I actually had the distinct pleasure of meeting the entire line-up of members in November 2007 in Springfield, Virginia at Jaxx nightclub. I have everyone one of the releases to date and really hope that STEELHEART WILL GO ON!!!!! I can tell you Mike Fowler's GREAT drumming ability and his legacy with STEELHEART will live on FOREVER and he will BE DEEPLY MISSED!!!!!! Sincerely, Mr. Jimmy Hunt.
