The Stooges' Steve Mackay Dead At 66

(Classic Rock) The Stooges saxophonist Steve Mackay has died at the age of 66. Mackay's death leaves Pop as the only surviving members of The Stooges lineup that featured on 1970 album Fun House.

Mackay developed sepsis - an infection that can lead to organ failure - following surgery last month and he was in a critical condition at Seton Medical Center in Daly City, California.

The Stooges frontman Iggy Pop says: "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."
