Quicksand recently had to finish their tour as a three-piece after guitarist Tom Capone was arrested for stealing from a CVS in Arizona. Frontman Walter Schreifels and bassist Sergio Vega recently appeared on Matt Pinfield's podcast to discuss the situation. Walter said:
I would say that he’s in a better place than being on a tour bus with us. I think, it’s probably… Not for me to really comment on that I know what he should or should not be doing. But it was a struggle for all of us and we just really don’t want to get into too much dirty laundry about it, because he’s our friend and we love him.
And Sergio also added:
He’s a really, really good guy. And there’s a lot of pressure and stressors on tour and there’s a lot of things and you know, there’s a lot of downtime. It’s not… You know it’s fun and it’s an easy thing to do. But it’s an easy thing to do when you don’t have things that you kind of like addressing and working on.
