Epstein died of complications due to drug use; but not an overdose as has been reported. Investigators were told Epstein had been using heroin. Howie was driven to St. Vincent Hospital by his girlfriend, who described him as "under distress."
Epstein was taking antibiotics for an illness, and he had recently suffered from flu, stomach problems and an abscess on his leg, friends said.
"Apparently he passed out in the bathroom, and (his girlfriend) drove him to the hospital," Madrid said.
He died on February 23, 2003 at the age of 47. Reportedly he was extremely despondent over the death of his 16 year-old German Shepherd a few days earlier. In recent interviews, Tom Petty admitted that Epstein's behavior had become unpredictable: "He was just degenerating on us to the point where we thought keeping Howie in the band was actually doing him more harm than getting rid of him. His personal problems were vast and serious." He was interred at Second Home Cemetery in Greenfield, WI.
also its fascinating and must be a unique case that ron blair who was the original heartbreakers bassist from 1976 to 1982 replaced his replacement- howie epstein- in 2002 when the heartbreakers felt he could no longer continue..blair is the guy who is currently their bassist.... you read alot of crap about how the heartbreakers are not the same without epstein and the original drummer...but blair IS the original bassist......

tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of
it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all
backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live
in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get
a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young
enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you
get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid,
you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you
go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating …and
you finish off as an orgasm.
George Carlin (1937-2008)
THis is absolutely one of my favorite bands and their concert this past Thursday was probably the most fun I've had at a concert in eons....I'll be posting more but I wanted to put up the final video I took by which point I'd gotten real close.. I managed to use Windows Maker to rotate it too which is something...

i had the privilege of seeing george carlin a few years ago at the warner theatre and the man was sharper than a tack, more lucid than the aurora borealis, and saltier than a whorehouse full of sailors on leave during wartime...
the picture is a shot of part of the front of the cover of George Carlin's debut LP from 1967.

have a bit more fun than the crowd and put in 100%...she mixed up the
classics with a few cuts from the new album.. she said she's having
trouble getting new single "out of our heads" on the radio because its
interpreted as too political...I was struck by how drop dead gorgeous
she looked.. she looks absolutely wonderful and motherhood is clearly
suiting her well.. as is getting rid of that idiot lance armstrong..
jam with Steve Winwood on Gimme Some Lovin'.... great crowd too...no
Tom Petty top hat! Too hot for that...
