Former Bonham Singer Dies of "Staph Infection"

Vocalist Daniel MacMaster died over the weekend. He sang with Jason Bonham in the band Bonham. A member of the band Scorcher, of which MacMaster also fronted, Terry Baker, offers this message about MacMaster's death:

"My name is Terry Baker. I have been friends with Dan since we were in Scorcher together.

Dan passed away from a staph infection; he had pneumonia and didn't realize he had a staph infection that got in his blood. By the time he got to hospital, it was too late.

His family and friends are in shock.

[Daniel was] certainly one of the greatest singers I ever worked with. He told me when I was teaching him guitar pre-Bonham he was going to be famous and tour the world and within two years of singing, he was doing a world tour opening for The Cult.

No words can explain his talent and personality. Truly an amazing person.

Love you, Dan."

MacMaster passed away on Sunday. He was 39 years old. Our condolences go out to his family.
