Pulp bassist Steve Mackey dies at 56

On Thursday, a representative for the band announced via social media that the musician and record producer had passed away. A cause of death was not revealed. They wrote alongside a photo of Steve trekking a mountain in South America in 2012: "We had a day off & Steve suggested we go climbing in the Andes. So we did. And 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).”
