He Skip Spence was a gifted, largely self-taught multi instrumentalist with an ear for unsettling dissonances and an uncanny knack for evoking the haunted atmosphere of pre-war blues and country with nothing more than a twist of his weathered vocal chords. A prime mover on San Franciscos psychedelic scene, Spence lent his shambolic drumming to an early incarnation of Jefferson Airplane and gained fame as a member of Moby Grape.
