The lead singer from Smash Mouth is retiring. Steve Harwell, 54, says he’s leaving after a rant on stage in which he slurred his words s and threatened a member of the audience. Their manager says that he has been dealing with an illness for 8 years now, and is leaving to take care of his mental and physical health. “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,” his rep said.
In his last performance at the Big Sip festival, Steve is seen flipping off the crowd, and saying “Eff U B’s” – you know what it is.
