Former Widespread Panic drummer Todd Nance, who parted ways with the band early last year after periods of time off the road, spoke with Jambands.com recently in an interview that covered both Nance’s new band, Interstellar Boys, and his break from his old bandmates.

“Basically, I had 31 great years touring with the band,” Nance begins, speaking of his time with Widespread Panic. “I wouldn’t trade that for anything. But, things do change as time goes on.”

Nance notes that he had to take a break from performing to work through some personal issues. “I had to address those issues and put my professional life on the sideline. So now that I’ve gotten that stuff out of the way, I’ve tried to get back to work. That’s pretty much it.”

Nance’s Interstellar Boys, also featuring Jerry Joseph, Bloodkin’s Daniel Hutchens, Sam Holt, John Neff and Jon Mills, opened up their run of summer dates earlier this week in Colorado and continue tonight at the Fox Theatre in Boulder.
