Dear friends, I am sad give out some bad news.

Micah Sheveloff, bandmate of original Steelheart drummer John Fowler, has sent the following to Sleaze Roxx regarding John’s medical condition:
This past Monday, dear friend and Voodoo Jets drummer John Fowler suffered a brain aneurism and is currently on life support in hospital. Doctors informed us today that John will not survive and is expected to pass by this coming Friday. I can’t even express the sorrow and the loss that I feel… and that I have seen from John’s family, friends, and various associated musicians who ALL love him dearly. John’s family has asked that everyone who wishes to say goodbye please visit him at Danbury hospital ( Connecticut ) 7th floor ICU.
