Albany native and multi-media artist Guy Spataford passed away on Wednesday, October 29 after losing his battle with liver cancer. He was 63 years old.

Spataford originally made his name in the arts on the Local 518 music scene, as a composer-musician with the Empire State Institute for the Performing Arts at The Egg, and as a founding member of Albany’s premiere progressive rock band, od.
