Spencer Leaves Daphne Loves Derby

Posted by: Joe DeAndrea (03/27/08)
Spencer Abbott has left Daphne Loves Derby to pursue other endeavors.
Message from SpencerNot really sure how to start this, but after countless hours of thinking, praying, and really weighing out my life, I (Spencer) have decided to step away from Daphne.

It is a decision I didnít take lightly and I feel I have avoided for quite some time. I feel as if I have some personal issues in my life to work out, ones much too complicated to write in a simple blog, that simply wonít get sorted out while touring and being on the road as often as the guys are.

While in the band, I really poured my heart and soul into it, and itís going to be hard to leave. At the end of the day, itís just something I have to do and I hope you all can understand. Iím really going to miss being with the guys, touring, meeting and hanging out with SO SO SO many awesome people everywhere, and just living the adventurous life we had. I love everyone in the band deeply and I consider them my brothers. They are great guys and from what I know I am beyond stoked to hear what comes of the new music they are coming up with.

I canít wait to see where they go!

Thanks for being awesome!

Spencer

Of course they will...

He wasn't even an original member. I think Kenny will keep the band going, basically, no matter who else comes and goes.

I hate to say it but I have this strange feeling that we'll be getting one more album before this band is done.

This may sound kind of dick, but I'm just glad it wasn't the singer. Guitarists can be replaced easier than vocalists. Sure people play different styles on the guitar, but they can mimmic others. Vocals cannot be.

But good luck to him in his endeavors.
