based on cam’s post today it seems like there’s no other conclusion to draw other than he got done dirty.
sucks for him and pretty disappointing to see happen to the guy who kept them going when nick took his “hiatus,” as the guitarist put it.

@BlaiseStafford listened to them back to back, the vegas one is great but since they both go super hard i'll take the last exit version for being one of the only versions i can recall w that really blissed out middle section and factoring in the galisteo way on either side of it, which when taken as a whole is an awesome, awesome jam
listened to 10/29/16 over the weekend and i'll nominate dis go in 5?
sandwiched between a great gw and gets really nice and melodic before going back to beast mode and the gw bookend
the ghostbusters is stellar as well, and throw ltlo in there while we're at it
really fun show up in flag. great start to the night w wes williams band opening and a lot of phoenix area people happy to be out of the heat and the band delivered a great show w a themed second set i was unaware of until well after the show ended.
stumbled upon this interview on a now-defunt blog jambandfriendly.com from october 2011 (remember occupy wall street? holy shit that feels like 30 years ago).
it touches on a lot of interesting early days of spafford stuff. definitely worth the read.
my favorite part:
Chris and I back line a church group amongst the other acts we are involved with. When Nick came to town he went to the church and saw us playing. It was soon after that we were talking to him about needing a drummer. His response was “I play auxiliary percussion”. At the time we didn’t need anything like that, but a week later saw him playing on a full drum set. He was unbelievable and we said “that is not auxiliary percussion buddy”. We went up to him and wanted to know if he would like to join the band and why he didn’t first tell us that he was a skilled drummer. Nick’s response was, “I didn’t think it was really relevant”. After that he was in the band.
