Tigertailz bassist Pepsi Tate died yesterday after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. While Tigertailz never reached major star status in the American Glam Metal community, they were fairly well known in their native U.K. Anyone who is a fan of the band knows that Pepsi Tate was Tigertailz.
They had the biggest hair of any Glam band, this side of Nitro. Crunchy guitars and big vocals are a Tigertailz trademark.
The band just released Thrill Pistol, a comeback of sorts. Their most famous release is Bezerk, which features the song "Love Bomb Baby."
Here's the video for "Love Bomb Baby."
How much longer before we find a cure for cancer?
