The Scene has just confirmed through multiple sources that Dharmakaya singer, Spat! Records proprietor and End doorman Stacy Fleeman is on life support. Fleeman was admitted to Vanderbilt Hospital Sunday and put into a medically induced coma after being found unresponsive. According to our sources, he has emerged from the coma with little to no brain activity. He is 33-years-old. The End's Jesse Baker said, "I've never known a person who cared more about his friends in the local music scene." The Pink Spiders' Matt Friction said, "Stacy is a really good guy.... I'm just hoping for the best at this point."

On behalf of the Cream I'd like to echo that same sentiment. I don't recall ever having gone to show at The End at which Stacy wasn't working the door. Always with a friendly face, he is an obvious and dedicated supporter of local music who we'd like to see around for a long time. Well-wishers can send their thoughts and prayers to the Spat! Records site.

Update: Stacy passed away last night. We are of course deeply saddened by this news.

Details of a benefit show at The End in mid-October are still forthcoming. Nashville Cream collected over $300 at our birthday party, which we will be donating to Stacy's family. We will update you with more information as we get it.
