Ron Spears and The Breakfast to Part Ways

Very sad news.  I definitely wish he and his family the very best for the future.

Ron was the first member of The (Psychedelic) Breakfast I met, at some Wormtown Festival years and years ago.  We shared some New Castles in front of the sound board :(.  I will miss hearing him play.  Oh well :( :(

this saddens me deeply.

my stomache dropped the second i logged on and saw a paragraph on the front page of .info.  before i read anything i had a feeling this was going to be what it said after talking to some people at the last show about how ron was expecting a baby and, knowing his personality, might not continue with the band afterwards.

i dont know guys, i just dont know.  ron was a huge part of the band and he knew every song and added a ton to the live show.  its going to be very tough to fill his shoes.

ron, good luck with the baby, you rocked thousands of people in the 9 years you played with these guys.  missed you will be...


i really think one final ron show should be played at toads after NYE, and heavily promoted, especially since i already have tickets to moe on NYE

IMHO

the death of the breakfast has occurred.

Tim should finish the Buquebus epic and the name should die with ron.

with only 2 original members I can see no real reason to carry on as the breakfast.

KindMs pull it together bro...... like Tim and Adrian aren\'t the heart of the band anyway. Absolutely no way they should disband as long as these two are still playing.

I mean, this sucks, but lets be honest. The band can find another great bass player to fill Ron\'s shoes and maybe even do better.

As long as these virtuoso talents on guitar and drums are with us , long live The Breakfast!

Good luck with all that comes in the future Ron!

Def makin it to Mid East now.

Will be interesting to see a third era of the breakfast begin.

I am. Good luck, Ron. I wish you would have had one final push with Matt to see what would have happened.
