Pulp Bassist Steve Mackey’s Cause of Death is Behind Shadows
While many fans are searching for Steve Mackey’s cause of death, sources announced that the musician and record producer passed away on March 2, 2023.
The Sheffield band announced the heartbreaking news of Mackey’s death on their official Twitter account. “Our beloved friend & bass player Steve Mackey passed away this morning. Our thoughts are with his family & loved ones,” the statement read.
The post was accompanied by a picture of Steve walking through a mountainscape with his back to the camera.
They wrote: “This photo of Steve dates from when Pulp were on tour in South America in 2012. 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 made things happen. In his life & in the band. & We’d very much like to think that he’s back in those mountains now, on the next stage of his adventure. Safe travels, Steve. We hope to catch up with you one day. All our love,” they added.
It was announced in October that Steve would not be joining this year’s Pulp reunion tour. In a post shared to social media, the musician explained: “I’ve decided to continue the work I’m engaged in – music, filmmaking, and photography projects, and will not be joining them for these UK shows just announced.”
He added: “Wishing Candy, Nick, Mark, and Jarvis the very best with forthcoming performances in the UK and also an enormous thanks to Pulp’s amazing fanbase, many of whom have sent me lovely messages today.”
