Meanwhile, popular bass guitarist of the rock band Pulp, Steve Mackey, recently passed away on March 2 at the age of 56. His wife Katie Grand disclosed the news on Instagram and wrote that he had been hospitalized for the last three months. She added:
“Steve died today, a loss which has left myself, his son Marley, parents Kath and Paul, sister Michelle and many friends all heartbroken. Steve was the most talented man I have ever known, an exceptional musician, producer, photographer, and filmmaker.”
Pulp also expressed its sorrow on the social media pages and wrote that its thoughts are with Steve’s family and loved ones. The post had a picture from the band’s South America tour in 2012. They wrote in the caption:
We had a day off & Steve suggested we go climbing in the Andes. So we did. & it was a completely magical experience. Far more magical than staring at the hotel room wall all day (which is probably what we’d have done otherwise).”
Steve Mackey’s cause of death has not been disclosed until now and further details on the reason behind his hospitalization are yet to be revealed.
