Fallon's younger sister Mary Alice Fallon-Yeskey appears on the Food Network show Ace of Cakes as office manager of Charm City Cakes in Baltimore, Maryland.

On September 12, 2013, Fallon announced that Clutch would have to postpone their September tour (except for a hometown show in Baltimore, MD at the Shindig Festival), due to personal health issues. Fallon released a statement through the band's Facebook page saying "Dear friends, this week I've learned that a childhood injury to the neck, a genetic predisposition for spinal disease, and 20 some years of head banging will exact a toll. I've been diagnosed with an ugly case of cervical spinal stenosis and two herniated discs." Fallon was set to have surgery on September 17, 2013 and the band is expected to resume their tour sometime in October.

Fallon currently lives in Silver Spring, Maryland with his family.[2]
