A very sad day in deed.  We had followed this story of Pepsi’s cancer battle, and recently did an update HERE.  It is a very sad day for Tigertailz friends, fans and family worldwide.

Goodnight and God bless our dear old ‘Boy’

We are absolutely devastated to bring you the news that our beloved friend and Tigertailz Bass player PEPSI TATE lost his battle with pancreatic cancer today. Pepsi passed away peacefully at 10:30 this morning, Tuesday 18th September 2007, in Holme Towers cancer hospice in Penarth Cardiff. Pepsi’s wife Shan and close family were with him.

Words cannot describe how we feel right now. We’re in bits and will miss him so much.

Goodnight Boy – we’ll see you again soon fella. You mean the world to us.
