“I want everyone to know that it was all that traveling that finally got to me,” Doughty added. “I’ve always enjoyed playing the shows and getting to see all the loyal fans that allowed me to do this for so long.”

The band has several dozen shows booked for the year, and they’ve left the door open for Doughty to join them on select dates. “It will be a big change to look around and not see Neal behind the keys, and we will miss his quick wit and interesting conversation on those long bus rides,” added singer Kevin Cronin. “But that’s what Neal needs and we support him.”
