Dan Hopper

Daniel M. Hopper would have been 59 today. I could go on and on about him. We were friends and bandmates. We were in the Psychic Plowboys together. The video for our song, Workout, won 3rd place in the Sony “Visions of America” film competition. Willem Dafoe and Lavar Burton were among the judges. The video was in rotation on MTV for a little while, and I’m sure we have bar tabs still open all over the world. I think of him often and sometimes I miss the possibility of seeing him. John Beifuss wrote the obituary for the Commercial Appeal. I’ll share some Dan stories on the next the next broadcast of Memphis Weirdos.

    I knew Dan back in the day when I was living in memphis. Dan was a charimatic, talented and somewhat eccentric individual who had a heart as big as Texas and was an awesome frontman for the various projects that he was a part of. Rest in peace dear Dan. You will always be remembered and loved.-Greg American
