Steve Mackay

Steve Mackay  (September 25, 1949 – October 10, 2015) was an American tenor saxophonist best known for his membership in the Stooges.  His performances are showcased on several tracks on the band’s second album, Fun House (1970).  (More from Wikipedia)
Iggy Pop began working with the Stooges again on his 2003 album, Skull Ring that also featured several younger artists:  Green Day, the TrollsSum 41, and Peaches.  The Stooges toured extensively between 2003 and 2008 with founding members Iggy Pop (vocals), Ron Asheton (guitar), and Scott Asheton (drums), along with (at Ron Asheton’s suggestion) new bandmember Mike Watt (bass guitar), formerly of Minutemen and fIREHOSE, and guest musician Steve Mackay (saxophone), who had performed on the Fun House album.  During these tours, the Stooges released an album of all new material, The Weirdness (2007).  Also, Elektra Records reissued the band’s first two albums, The Stooges and Fun House in deluxe 2-CD packages in 2005
