"SO FEW TRULY ORIGINAL FIGURES EXIST IN POP MUSIC THAT DAN HICKS SHOULD BE A NATIONAL TREASURE."
--SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE


Daniel Ivan Hicks

My darling darling husband left this earth early this morning.
He was true blue, one of a kind, and did it all his own way always.
To all who loved him, know that he will live forever in the words, songs, and art that he spent his life creating. He worked so hard on each and every detail -- they are all pure Dan.

So, Duke, Benny, Django and Stephane -- he's on his way -- you'll be laughing soon!

Much love,

That led to a webpage called "Show Reports", where these wonderfully entertaining accounts were archived. There are over 150 Reports available on the "Show Reports -- Eyewitness Accounts of Dan in Action!" webpage. It is great reading, guaranteed to bring back fond memories of Dan, and the great times we all shared. Go there now.
