Mid Youth Crisis formed in 1993 and were made up of the talented Steve Milligan (Steadfast) on vocals, Adrian Lombardi (Blueline Medic) on guitar, Heath McAnally on guitar, Dave Collins (Identity Theft) on bass, and Jay Jones (Fuck… I’m Dead, Identity Theft, Providence) on drums.
Heath battled through drug addiction for years, and was replaced by Trent (Steadfast) by 1997/98. Beltsy from Mindsnare & Blood Duster regularly would fill in on guitar after Trent also left MYC, so you typically see him at the MYC reformation gigs… and sometimes we would bump into Beltsy on our train home!
While Steve managed to kick his heroin habit by escaping to Ireland in 1999, Health unfortunately passed away from his addiction in April 2011 (RIP).
