Smash Mouth’s Steve Harwell in hospice care with only a ‘short time’ left

Let’s get into some of that news of the day.
Want to get into this story?
You might remember this band from back in the day,
kind of some tragic news here.
Steve Harwell,
the former lead singer of Smash Mouth,
has entered hospice care
as he suffers from the final stage of liver failure.
That’s according to sources.
TMZ reported that Harwell is,
quote,
on his deathbed,
end quote,
and has entered the last stage of liver failure,
which was brought on after a lifelong struggle with alcohol abuse.
The all-star singer was being treated in a hospital until recently.
A representative from Harwell’s management confirmed the tragic news to Fox News Digital,
and they say,
unfortunately,
this is the case.
Steve is resting at home and being cared for by his fiance and hospice care.
The representative told Fox News Digital that the singer is surrounded by family and friends at this time.
And here’s another quote from that source.
We would hope that the people would respect Steve and his family’s privacy during this difficult time.
Harwell retired in 2021 after a problematic performance in upstate New York.
You might have seen some of that video.
A representative cited Harwell’s mental and physical health while confirming the retirement to the New York Post.
And here’s a quote from that.
Despite Steve’s best efforts to work through these ailments,
he is heartbroken to share that it has become impossible for him to continue doing what he loves most,
performing in front of the band’s millions of fans around the world.
Smash Mouth was actually formed in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1994.
They produced popular hits in the late 1990s and early 2000s,
such as All Star,
Walking on the Sun,
and their cover of the Monkees’ I’m a Believer.
So pretty tragic news there.
You might remember this band,
like I said,
from back in the day.
But Steve Harwell now on his deathbed,
fighting for his life,
but surrounded by family.
We’ll bring you any updates on that story as we do find those out.
