Miguel Valdes was a percussionist who was friends with the band back in 1992 and would occasionally fill in on percussion. In early 1993, he passed away and the band held three (3.7.93
) benefit shows in his name. In his honor the band put together the song titled #34
which was eventually recorded on Under The Table and Dreaming
Note: Fans have usually spelled his last name Valdez
; however, official records show that Valdes
is the correct spelling.
