Steve Mackay – RIP


Steve Mackay (The Stooges, Violent Femmes) ci ha lasciato. Dopo il ricovero (in condizioni critiche) del 7 settembre scorso (“… to be treated for sepsis, a complication of an infection that can cause multiple organs to fail. Officials said that as of noon Tuesday, he was still in critical condition in the hospital’s ICU and surrounded by family members”) il sassofonista 65enne ha perso la sua personale battaglia. Iggy Pop lo ricorda così.

Message from Iggy on Steve Mackay’s passing:
“Steve was a classic ’60s American guy, full of generosity and love for anyone he met. Every time he put his sax to his lips and honked, he lightened my road and brightened the whole world. He was a credit to his group and his generation. To know him was to love him. Iggy.”
