Sad news reached us from Steel Pulse via their official Facebook page:
"It is with a heavy heart that we must pass the sad news that today, our brother, our friend, our time keeper for so many years, original founding member of Steel Pulse, Steve "Grizzly" Nisbett has passed away suddenly and unexpected.
As we the Steel Pulse family far and wide have lost someone so close to us, we will still take the stage in a few hours on the Jam Cruise, knowing that the joy that Grizz had bringing the Steel Pulse music and message to our beloved fans around the world, will continue on today, and his spirit, love, and love for you all will ring out across the seas, touching your heart and ours.
Bless Grizzly, Rest In Power!"
Grizzly joined Steel Pulse in 1977. He was the main drummer until 1998 when he gave up the honours to Conrad Kelly, but continued to play percussion. He retired from the band in 2001 due to health concerns.
