A Musical Life: Sean Stuckey (In Memoriam)

Mar 1, 2019

Sean Stuckey was a Wichita-area musician and member of bands such as High Plains Drifter and Acid Gas Station. He died February 24 and is remembering here by his bandmates and friends Adam Hemphill and Nick Driskill. His family has partnered with Damm Music to create a scholarship to Rock Academy in his name.

Nick Driskill: “Musical soulmate. That’s the only way I can say it. We clicked just like that. I will miss him a lot. I will live harder for that guy. I will make music more often.”

Adam Hemphill: “Sean was a terrific human being and a genius musician. It was always a joy to work with him; there’s this flow state that you can enter when you’re making music and writing and playing and things happen to be going well. With Sean, he was somebody that I could reliably enter that flow state with. The most amazing things occurred from that. That doesn’t happen often. He had a rare gift. It was beautiful.”
