After their break up, Skeeter dealt with many drug problems and floated around the country. He eventually ended up in Little Rock, Arkansas and played in several of the local bands there including the Muff Divers and local old school punk band, Springgun.
Thompson is the main subject of the song Just Another Story About Skeeter Thompson on the album Pocketwatch by Late! (Dave Grohl and Barrett Jones). The exact same recording of the song also appears - remixed and titled Skeeter - on the King Buzzo EP.
He currently resides in Little Rock, Arkansas.
