Canadian rocker BRIAN LOURIE has died. He was 39.
The longtime drummer for Slaughter - later known as Strappado - passed away following a heart attack.
Details of where and when he died were unavailable as WENN went to press.
Slaughter guitarist Dave Hewson says, "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 humour and love for life made him such a wonderful person who will be greatly missed. "
