SLAUGHTER vocalist / guitarist Dave Hewson has just posted the following sad news: "I just wanted to let everyone know that longtime drummer for SLAUGHTER and STRAPPADO, Brian Lourie, has died of a heart attack at the young age of 39. Brian was one of the best people I have ever met and was a huge part of SLAUGHTER joining in 1987-88 ’till we disbanded in 1992. His sense of humor and love for life made him such a wonderful person who will be greatly missed. I will try to release more info as it comes. Love you, bro." Rest in peace Brian!
