I never thought I’d write this but to all who knew our amazing front-of-house mixer and my studio master of sound for my last 12 albums, Matty Spindel, it’s my heartbroken duty to tell you that he has gone home today and is in no more pain. He passed at 1 pm on October 6 from pancreatic cancer. Anyone wishing to honor his memory, please donate to your local animal welfare organization, sanctuary, or shelter. Matty loved animals. Above is a great photo of me with our great friend, master mixer, brilliant sound man, crappy Monopoly player, and chocolate doughnut lover… and lover of all things with four legs, wings, or flippers! May the angels welcome him with open arms. God bless your spirit, my dear friend.
