Smash Mouth singer Steve Harwell is having a rough stretch. He recently missed a few gigs because he was dealing with heart issues, and his rep said he was changing his lifestyle as a result.
On Saturday, the band played a show at a beer and wine festival in Bethel, New York . . . and it was PURE CHAOS. The sound was horrible for basically the whole show, which wasn’t necessarily the band’s fault. But Steve made matters worse by getting WASTED. He was slurring, dropping drinks, often not even singing, and at one point he appeared to give a Nazi salute. He told one fan, quote,
“I’ll [effing] kill your whole family, I swear to God.”
He also told the crowd that if he could pleasure himself orally, he’d never leave the house.
