Molly Hatchet Original Guitarist Dies


Guitarist Steve Holland, who rose to fame with Southern rockers Molly Hatchet, has reportedly died.
The news was shared via social media by Gator Country, the band Holland formed in 2005 with fellow ex-Molly Hatchet members Jimmy Farrar, Duane Roland and Bruce Crump. Holland’s age and cause of death were not revealed. His recent health battles have been regularly chronicled on the group’s Facebook page.
Holland was the last surviving member of the classic six-piece Molly Hatchet lineup. Singer Danny Joe Brown passed away in 2005, followed by guitarist Duane Roland a year later. Drummer Bruce Crump died in 2015, and 2017 saw the deaths of both guitarist Dave Hlubek and bassist Banner Thomas.
