Mean Mr Mustard's Fred Hayward dies

South Africa's music industry has been dealt a blow with the death of Fred Hayward, bassist for Mean Mr Mustard. He apparently died of a heart attack. He was in his thirties.

Hayward was an integral part of a band that has become synonymous with the growth and international acceptance of the South African music industry. He will be sorely missed.

You can leave your tribute to Freddy here.

Oh my word!
I had the priviledge of interviewing the band for university radio after the release of their very first single, "Can't get enough" which must be about 1996.

WOW! That is terrible.
Thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.
