In December 1998, Dulli was hospitalized suffering a skull fracture at the hands of a bouncer following an altercation at the Liberty Lunch Club in Austin, TX. In 1999, Dulli was invited to participate on a tribute album for Moby Grape founding member Skip Spence, who was dying of lung cancer. Dulli appears on the album More Oar: A Tribute To The Skip Spence

The album was released shortly after Spence's death, though Spence had listened to a pre-release version of the album shortly before his death.[3] Dulli provides vocals for the song "Somebody Needs You" off of The Lo-Fidelity Allstars 2002 album "Don't Be Afraid of Love"
