The band retired from touring definitively in 1982 after Partridge [[CreatorBreakdown suffered a severe mental breakdown]], forcing their world tour to be cancelled. They remained studio-bound for the rest of their career, making occasional live appearances on radio and television (like a 1989 appearance on ''[[Creator/DavidLetterman Late Night with David Letterman]]'' where [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Amx5CK7vdoc Partridge looks absolutely uncomfortable]]). In response to the loss of touring income, Chambers left and moved to Australia. Partridge, Moulding and Gregory didn't bother to replace him, instead recruiting session drummers on an album-per-album basis. These drummers have included: Prairie Prince (The Tubes), Dave Mattacks (Music/FairportConvention), Pat Mastelotto (Music/KingCrimson) and Dave's brother Ian Gregory.
