Drummer Steve Foley, who played drums on the Replacements' final All Shook Down tour, died last weekend in Minneapolis after accidentally overdosing on prescription medicine. He was 49. Foley was recruited to join the Replacements after original drummer Chris Mars left following the All Shook Down sessions. Foley joined the band after meeting Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson in a bar and offered them a ride. When they got in the car, they noticed a copy of All Shook Down, prompting both members to declare Foley as their new drummer. Foley sat behind the kit for what was the group's final tour, including their last ever concert on July 4th, 1991 in Chicago's Grant Park. In his post-Replacements days, Foley played in Stinson's band Bash & Pop and also worked as a car salesman.
