    Steve Holland—the last surviving member of the influential Southern rock band Molly Hatchet’s most legendary lineup, passed away Sunday (8-2) after a prolonged illness. The guitarist for the group helped perfect the double guitar attack that became the band’s signature, and can be heard on their most memorable hit “Flirtin’ With Disaster.”

    Singer Danny Joe Brown passed away in 2005, guitarist Duane Roland died in 2006, drummer Bruce Crump passed in 2015, and guitarist Dave Hlubeck and bassist Banner Thomas died in 2017.

    Bloody hell I don't know to much about Molly Hatchet other than them being a southern-fried guitar heavy rock band but all of those guys have all passed away either from cancer or heart attacks!!.

    RIP Steve

    I knew of Molly Hatchet though listening to Lynyrd Sknyrd and maybe .38 Special (maybe?) about 25 years ago anyway I have a Greatest Hits cd of there's and I can't say that I ever really listened to them at all as they were very 'guitar heavy with the aforementioned 3 guitar attack' but I am currently playing the Greatest Hits cd and it sounds pretty good to be honest.
