Roger Earl (Drummer for Foghat):
“We are sad to hear about the passing of our friend, concert promoter and talent buyer Steve Thurman. He was a beautiful man and always went to bat for Foghat. We originally met Steve through our good friend, the late Randy VanWarmer. Rest easy Steve. You made a difference. Love Linda & Roger Earl.”

“Our Old buddy and manager, Steve Thurman passed away. What a wonderful man he was. We shared many miles on the road together and so much laughter and memories! We love ya Thurmy!”

Jason McCoy (The Road Hammers):
“You may not know his name, but there would be no JM or Road Hammers without him…my manager introduced me to Steve, and he in turn introduced me to my (and Road Hammers) producer Scott Baggett (best there is) and my favourite co-writer Denny Carr who wrote I’m a Road Hammer….he took me backstage at the Grand Ole Opry for the first time, introduced me to countless others in Nashville, and welcomed me into his home when I didn’t have a place to stay. We may have lost contact over the years, but that falls on my shoulders….so sad to learn of his passing….I guess I took for granted that there’d be time to catch up, ‘In the Future’….I shouldn’t have done that….none of should take that for granted….Thank you Steve Thurman…miss ya bud”
