Thinning the Herd's Rick Cimato Killed In Car Accident
The band's frontman Gavin Spielman informed fans about death with a couple of Facebook updates. In the first one he wrote, "I just found out my best friend and drummer Rick was killed in a car accident this weekend. I don't think I can continue with Thinning the Herd anymore."
He later posted the following, " Being in a band is about being friends. In shock and in tears over the loss of my friend and bandmate, I have to think of the band. I named the band Thinning the Herd when my father Steven A. Spielman passed, to cope with the loss.
