I received this sad news from Jared Nickerson, bass player of Burnt Sugar – The Arkestra Chamber.
I would like to send out my condolences to all of the Tate family on the passing of Pops Tate, departed to join Florence: the parents of my very good friend Greg Tate – the writer, cultural critic and band leader of Burnt Sugar. Two amazingly enlightened souls, who graced this planet with their presence and who remained woker than woke – fully engaged in the struggle.
Please accept my humble obeisance.
RIP Pops Tate.
