‘Smash Mouth’ singer Steve Harwell dies at age 56

Harwell died “comfortably and peacefully” at his home in Boise, Idaho, surrounded by family and friends, the representative said.

Shortly before, it was known that the artist received palliative care. According to The New York Times, Harwell died of liver failure.

He formed the band Smash Mouth in 1994 with drummer Kevin Colman, guitarist Greg Camp and bassist Paul De Lisle in California.

Of the founding members, only De Lisle follows. Harwell retired from the stage in 2021 and is now replaced by vocalist Zach Goode.

His first success was in 1997 with the song “Walkin’ on the Sun”. In 1999, they released the album “Astro Lounge”, whose song “All Star” appeared two years later in the credits of the animated film “Shrek”, catapulting the band to stardom.
